By Emily Hughes, BBC News – Facebook is using data from a different company to compile a list of missing data on the website.
Data from Twitter, Google and Facebook are all being used to compile the new data.
It is part of a broader effort by Facebook to improve the way its users interact with its platform.
A Facebook spokeswoman said it used the data “to improve user experience and to make decisions for us in real time”.
The company is also using data gathered by other companies in order to better understand how users are using its platform and what they are interested in.
Facebook said it would use the data in the future.
It also said it was working on a plan to help users get more information about the data it collects.
It was not immediately clear how much data the company had collected from each of the data sources.
Facebook has been struggling with an increasing number of problems over the past few years.
It has been forced to take measures to prevent more data being used in order for the site to work properly.
The company also recently added the ability for people to flag data breaches that occurred within its network.
Facebook was founded in 1998 and it has since become the most used social network in the world.
It claims to have over 90 million users around the world, according to data from social analytics firm Quantcast.
Facebook’s chief executive Mark Zuckerberg said the changes were intended to give people more control over how their data was used.
He said he hoped they would also improve the privacy and security of users.
