I wonder what that breaks down to, per person, for every record that was improperly sold?

I think they are going to have some intense discussions to figure out if they want to risk a 'next' time.

that is nothing to FB though!! over the last few years they have made at least 40B a year! just in ad revenue!!

$5B is a lot, even for a company as big as Facebook.  And the question they have to asking themselves, is what would the next fine be like?  Perhaps double if they don't change their practices?

The behavioral targeting strategies and the way how they collect your data is annoying, and sometimes it affected many people’s lives.

The data they collect as well as other sources will eventually be aggregated together then analyzed to be able to 'understand' you better.  That is scary as it will be used to 'influence' your decisions (to purchase, vote, eat, etc.)
