Facebook explains how and why it collects so much of your data
To say that Facebook's product "is social media" is a factual inaccuracy - Facebook has many products. No internet company in its right mind would sell the actual data of one of its users.

The company, who announced its fourth quarter and consolidated results for the year on Monday, reported operating free cash flows at Rs 1,016 crore, consolidated EBITDA at Rs 1,606 crore, and EBIT at Rs 1,020 crore, thus recording marginal yearly growth. Airtel said the industry continued to see "below cost, artificially suppressed pricing", compounded by the cut to global termination rates in the past quarter.

The statement said during the quarter mobile data traffic had grown more than six times to 1,540 billion MBs in the quarter as compared to 225 billion MBs in the corresponding quarter a year ago. "Data traffic grew 88 per cent, voice minutes increased by 37 per cent and Airtel Money throughput grew by 45 per cent on a year-on-year basis", said Raghunath Mandava, MD and CEO, Africa operations. The company reported a forex loss of Rs 330.6 crore against a loss of Rs 70 crore QoQ. The telecom tower company shares fell as much as 3.8 per cent to Rs 315.65, their lowest since March 28, 2017. The operating margin in this case was reported at 35.9 per cent against 35.5 per cent in the previous quarter. "Usage parameters remained robust- on a YOY basis, we saw data and voice traffic grow 584% and 55% respectively".

The firm reported consolidated revenues of Rs. 14,490 crore in FY17-18 as against Rs 13,424 crore in the previous year, showing a growth of 8%.
