When Facebook was in it's infancy, they were desperate to get as many users as possible.
To do that, they had very few rules.   Their TOS, terms of service allowed things that they no longer allow. 

To get a Facebook account, you have to agree to their TOS.
HOWEVER, whenever they change their TOS, that voids the previous TOS, and users must AGREE to the NEW TOS.

Where in life can you have a contract or agreement.. that one side changes in the future without the consent of the other party? 

Also, Facebook has rules against virtually everything.  They selectively enforce these rules when they want to eliminate someone. 

Beyond all that.. they also have done things which are illegal - such as asking for FULL social security numbers.   Only government institutions and financial institutions have the right to even request that information.  I personally have gotten email from Facebook demanding my social security number as a form of identification.

If anybody doesn't believe that Facebook makes a fortune out of selling it's user's personal information to government agencies, telemarketers, investigation services, and advertisers, then that person is ignorant and naive. 

How many users to you think Facebook would have if they clearly informed it's users that "we may sell your personal information to government agencies, telemarketers, investigation services, and advertisers"?

It's the shitty part of life.   

Businesses can change their contracts with you and there's very little you can do about it.

EULAs are the same way.  You have to agree to accept it to install the software.  HOWEVER, you have to install the software in many cases to read it.

Even worse, they put things into their EULAs which are not legal,  while at the same time NOT honoring their side of the agreement. 
Facebook is like a time bomb that will eventually go off.  Intangible tech companies vaporize overnight.  (remember myspace?)

It will go off overnight.. once someone of notoriety points out that Facebook makes billions off of selling people's personal information.  There are constantly commercials running on TV about LifeLock.  Facebook is the opposite of LifeLock.

If they were putting things that were outright illegal in their TOS, they'd of been shut down by the US government, or otherwise fined HEAVILY a long ass time ago... That being said though, I don't doubt for so much as one second that they'll do as shady of things as they can legally get away with.

For example, did you know that if you allow Facebook or Messenger to access your camera and/or microphone, that Facebook can spy on you without your knowledge at any time? Don't believe me? Read their TOS. I turned off the permissions to access my location the day that Facebook tried to make it MANDATORY to post your location with all of your posts. It seems that with every update that they roll out, they're doing shadier and shadier shit. I've contemplated getting rid of my Facebook account because of it for some time now.

Thanks for that information!   It's shocking what Facebook gets away with!
I am certain that if people knew what was in the TOS, a MASSIVE number of people would get rid of their Facebook accounts which would cripple their operation.  Even if they didn't get rid of their accounts, they would stop USING their accounts.
