Breaking the Black Box: What Facebook Knows About You

Julia Angwin, Terry Parris Jr., Surya Mattu

Julia Angwin, Terry Parris Jr., and D&S affiliate Surya Mattu explore what Facebook knows about its users.

We built a tool that works with the Chrome Web browser that lets you see what Facebook says it knows about you — you can rate the data for accuracy and you can send it to us, if you like. We will, of course, protect your privacy. We won’t collect any identifying details about you. And we won’t share your personal data with anyone.
