They also sell info on your interests to advertiser. You can’t escape that.

I viewed some thing and later found ads to those same things in email.

I had that happen when I first used FB.  But now I just visit friends pages, organizations I'm a member of, like horse associations.

There are more active sites than Breitbart. Why focus on that one?

I have absolutely no idea. You would have to ask those Triggered Leftist Facebook Employees!

Maybe the content on Breitbart went against more of their narrative than other more active sites.

Edited to add: [Maybe banning Breitbart's info caused them more overtime?]

Apple respects user privacy.  Facebook doesn’t. They want everything under their control and life doesn’t work that way.

Yes, but it's interesting that Facebook would go after Apple and blame them for loss of sales.

One would think the GAFA (as they're referred to here in Japan)... that's Google, Apple, Facebook, Amazon wouldn't publicly go after each other like that.

You do realize that it is totally possible to use FB and not click on any ads! Links, political articles. Etc?  I use FB all the time and I seldom click in their links.

No I didn't realize that because I don't have a Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, TicToc, Line or any other SNS platform account.

Well... I think that all big tech companies need to have their Section 230 status removed... they're hiding behind that protection curtain now and it should be removed.

I agree. Then they can do what they want within any restrictions
