Panitch argued that nothing is private on Facebook.

“Facebook in and of itself was originally made up for people to get together, not to sell anything,” Tsombanakis said. She added that she’s outraged to know that the company may be using her personal information.

“Facebook has a right to make money and you know what, as the consumer, if you don’t like the terms of use, don’t sign up for it,” Panitch said.
