Particularly EXIF data, Facebook claim to strip it but I have seen that they use it. They do strip it from the image you publish but not before they harvest the data from it.

Why would anyone put anything remotely personal on things like farkbook? In fact, why be there?

Connecting with family and friends all over the world.
Maybe you don't have family in other countries, but it really helps to aggregate all the info in one place and with the photos.
If you lock your profile down to friends only and don't enable any third party apps, then there is no problem.

i don't upload and have never uploaded the image of myself on any social network, and I would like it to stay that way forever despite so called 'friends' trying to pressure me to do the opposite.

You would be surprised how many people have gotten themselves into personal, criminal and financial trouble by putting too much info on Facebook. IMO this the nasty product of the decade. Rather sign your dog and cat up if you must
