No matter how many privacy laws Facebook violates, it still remains one of the most widely used social networks worldwide. And you never know what you might find or who you might interact with on the platform even if they are added to your friend list. Every once a while you would come across some page or user who doesn’t follow the safety and privacy rules and regulations of the platform.
