Social media companies are always listening and recording what you say. Besides selling your private information to advertisers, these companies will also hand your information over to the police without a second thought. So if you’re planning any sensitive actions that you don’t want other people knowing about in advance (or after the fact), you definitely shouldn’t be planning them on facebook. Your best bet is to have these conversations face-to-face, without any cell phones, laptops or smart devices present. But if that’s not possible and you must communicate electronically, at least do yourself a favour and use an encrypted, open source solution like Signal.
