Facebook is an advertising platform that builds profiles about its users through their browsing history and sells them.
Google does the same with your search history and YouTube views. On the other hand, Facebook tracks you because a great number of web sites are littered with Facebook's tiny "Share / Like this" button. A user thinks the button is just there to make sharing easier, but it allows Facebook to keep a record every site the user has been on.
