"Even if you don't have a Facebook account, Facebook has a You account—a hole in their social graph with a bunch of connections pointing into it and your name tagged on your friends' photographs."

"They know a lot about you, and they sell access to their social graph to advertisers who then target you, even if you don't think you use Facebook."

From an essay by Charles Stross about AIs.
