Re: @StewartWhite

As Facebook uses the information generated on each user to provide close to immediate tailoring of the 'FB Experience' with ads, news, and, other information suited to the identity logged in - then I agree it is obvious BS that they cannot access the information - they act on it at every single login and possibly on every single transaction. They may not be able to easily go back to each of the interactions that were used to build the information/picture of the identity - but they and all their advertisers have immediate real time access to the information about each and every identity logging in. Otherwise it does not support the purpose for which it was collected and therefore does not meet the requirements of GDPR.
