So your theory is that just because YOU have Facebook and you're fine
sharing information (/don't care/whatever), that *I* have to suffer
that fate as well?

Perhaps you hadn't noticed, but there's a very active business in the
form of VPN's, DNS-over-HTTPS, and other privacy-enhancing technologies
that seem to indicate that people do have an interest in privacy and
limiting the amount of ISP monetization of their data that can go on.

Just because some people might be fine with their data being leaked
does not mean that everyone is fine with it.
