Do you always wonder seeing your feed why Facebook shows advertisements that you are genuinely interested in! Like, how does it come to know that you were looking for a blue Louis Vuitton bag on some shopping portal?
For starters, Facebook has a list that it maintains to gain data about you. It includes your personal information like your name, gender, relationship status etc or other information like sites visited, interests, etc. Yes it is an extensive list and you should think about whether you are comfortable with this.
Well yes, read on below to find out exactly what the site has put together about you bu simply going deeper into your own account.
Interest tab says a lot about your preferences too. Once you visit the interest tab, you will be able to see the options that you have selected as your preference.
Just below the interests' tab will you find a tab of advertisers, who have information about you and whose ad you see on a regular basis on your Facebook page. You can edit both your interests and advertisers' page from here.
You can now create your own list of preferences by adding and removing your interests one by one. The final list remaining will be the data that Facebook will have about you.
It is strongly advised that you do not share anything too personal on a social media site like Facebook that is prone to hackers.
