Facebook's policy explains me that technically I own the information that I share on facebook. It is I who chooses to share my data to a certain group of people.

However, as I deactivate my account, who owns my facebook data? Also, should I be concerned about the privacy of my data which I have already shared in facebook?

  • @Azteca I believe this has to do with user privacy. Had I tried to make it too generic, the question would have been "too broad for an answer" – xandfury Jan 19 '17 at 17:35
  • This is off-topic: who owns your data is not technical. You should find the answer in the terms and conditions of Facebook and you should have agreed to these terms by using Facebook. If you don't understand what you've agreed to ask at law.stackexchange.com. – Steffen Ullrich Jan 19 '17 at 18:12
  • @SteffenUllrich I would still argue that this is on topic. There i a highly voted similar question answered here: security.stackexchange.com/questions/8540/… – xandfury Jan 19 '17 at 18:30
  • Also infosec isn't all about tech either. Topics such as social engineering may not be technical but are part of infosec – xandfury Jan 19 '17 at 18:33
