    I generally would believe there was already laws in place for this to not happen. Of course there isn't...

    Every industry wants to make more money off their data

    As if facebook doesn't already have an incredibly intrusive hold on the public life of its users. Next it'll be them lobbying Big Insurance to get your medical data.

    Jeez, that's pretty brazen and upfront.

    They could have at least arranged a meeting about adoptions.

    They already passed legislation with ISPs giving away your data. I've heard the argument for things like this is it's metadata and isn't information that's tied directly back to a specific person.

    So the company with an appalling record concerning user privacy, thinks it should be allowed access to the most private information of it's users.

    Integrate your banking, checking accounts, credit card accounts, into your facebook? "just imagine the convenience!"- corp ball washer

    Slowly but surely online anonymity is being stripped away and the idea of privacy is pissed away.

    So, shortly after Cambridge Analytica, Facebook wants even more personal data? I believe that tone is quite deaf.

    Given that CA didn't break Facebook, I'm not sure this will do it either.

    "Facebook said it wouldn’t use the bank data for ad-targeting purposes or share it with third parties."

    Anyone that actually believes this deserves all the bad things that happen to them because of it. So glad I dumped facebook years ago and never looked back.

    What do they have to fear? Stock dropped for a moment and went on to higher highs. Nothing more than a speed bump.

    Sad thing is even if people bailed on Facebook, there will just be another social media company doing the same thing. Not sure there is enough political will in Washington or the electorate to stomp on the necks of these companies.

    Facebook should be paying users for their data, since they're selling our information to other companies.

    Facebook, Amazon, Yahoo, Twitter, etc, etc should send everyone one on the planet a check for $1000 for selling our information over and over again.
