My view is: just stay away from anything related to Facebook. " Facebook routinely scans your Messenger conversations, and in some cases human employees may review them." As Justin Pot writes, " Facebook, for what its worth, says that Messenger conversations are not scanned for advertising purposes. I can’t help but wonder how long that stays true." As he notes, Google has been scanning email for this purpose for a decade (which is why I don't use Gmail).
