The latest: an alarming New York Times report detailing the massive trove of user data that the company has shared with such companies as Apple, Netflix and Amazon.A growing number of people say they are deleting Facebook, or at least considering it.While Facebook has tried to address some of these problems, it's not enough for some users. Facebook lets you download the data you've shared with Facebook since you joined.This process should give you a good – perhaps scary – idea of what Facebook has on you.Facebook says the process could take a few days.Facebook has become a one-stop shop for so many things.If your boycott of Facebook has more to do with your view of the company than with tiring of the Facebook service, you might consider deleting Instagram, WhatsApp and Messenger as well – they are all owned by Facebook.
