Did you know that you have a Facebook profile even if you don’t ?

  • List of contact: if you have friends who have your contact in their list in their phones. When they download any of the Facebook apps, those apps get to their contact list. In there, there is your phone number which is your unique identity number, your email (maybe), your street address (maybe) your picture and all get to aggregated into a single profile. So Facebook not only know that personal information about you, it know everybody you know because he got you from their contact list. Facebook can use that to build you a Facebook profile with your interest.
  • Pictures : It can use your photo in the help of the artificial recognition to find other photos on you on Facebook.
