Why Facebook and Google are not on the same page

by Volker Weber

This is marketing nirvana. It has made FB endlessly wealthy. It has nothing to do with any other web advertising company. The closest peers would be credit scoring companies, because their customers also get "the report on the specific user" rather than an "anonymous introduction to certain users."

To be clear, THE USER INFORMATION LEAVES FB AND GOES TO THE ADVERTISER/ POLITICAL MANIPULATOR/ whatever.

Just read the whole thing. All your smart privacy settings do nothing.

Some of the smartest people in this industry have told me they would never use any Facebook product. They explained to me why. And I still needed until a few years ago to understand.

Maybe you will understand faster than I did.

I am confused. I find it difficult to believe that FB sells data directly, because it then looses control of that data. Furthermore, neither the author of the article nor the author of the lengthy quote in it are directly associated with FB or have prove als access to first hand information.
A different point of view is taken here: http://faktenfinder.tagesschau.de/ausland/facebook-daten-skandal-101.html
So, I am confused because I do not have first hand information. Your own post reads like you have first hand information which support the claims made in the article you linked. Right?
