This Plug-In Lets You See How Much Information Facebook Has On You

All those hours you spend on Facebook may seem free of charge. But you're essentially paying for it in the currency of your personal information.

That’s because your data is virtually invaluable to advertisers. When it comes to finding a market and fine-tuning a product, the personal information we all put into Facebook is a gold mine. For a price, Facebook uses this information to help marketers target ads to specific groups of people who might be interested.
Unfortunately, not many people realize this as it's so deeply hidden in Facebook's website.

ProPublica has created a Google Chrome extension that allows users to see just how much information Facebook have on you.
