And they display these ads using your personal data/information. So they may not be charging you via credit card but surely charging you in terms of your personal life.

When I say personal life, I mean highly specific personal details, there are some of the data that Facebook uses to target ads for me. Its took data like the phone i use, which pages i commonly interact with, what I search more and more. It's more scary that Facebook tells publically that the data you have, they probably have a lot more and all that is being used via advertisers by free things we are getting access to these website.
