"There is no invasion of privacy at all, because there is no privacy," Facebook counsel Orin Snyder said during a pretrial hearing to dismiss a lawsuit stemming from the Cambridge Analytica scandal, according to Law 360.

The company reportedly didn't deny that third parties accessed users' data, but it instead told US District Judge Vince Chhabria that there's no "reasonable expectation of privacy" on Facebook or any other social media site.

There is privacy even on social media if the control of all available data is under the control of the user only. Obviously, that would make it impossible for a company to harvest and analyze and sell everything about their sheep users, so it's harder to make money. Snyder should have said "There is no privacy on Facebook because of our business model".
