  • In the Facebook terms of use agreement, you basically agree to giving legal ownership of the information you give Facebook to, Facebook.

    They can do whatever they want with it. Literally. It's mainly used to send adverts to your email, but can also be used to send fake accounts after you.

  • You may have too much information public on your profile. Also, they will crawl through membership lists of forums and pages. There are a lot of automated programs that can look and exploit security leaks.
