Have you ever wondered why Facebook, Twitter, GMail and many other applications on the internet are free? Yes, they make huge amounts of money in advertising, but an even bigger source of revenue is the data you create and consume. From the advertisement you click on, the post or tweet you like, this data is saved forever and put into a huge data base. Your personal information, likes or retweets can be used to target specific advertisements to appeal to you and pop up every time your engaged. This is why if you search for "Honda Accord" in your favorite search engine, you will see an ad for every Honda dealer near you.
Some people may not mind this, however this could lead to a number of unintended consequences. If you liked the wrong post 7 Years ago, or responded in to a tweet in a way that might be taken out of context, there is really no way of erasing that.
