How can Facebook learn about something like 'commute time', 'distance from household to work office' or 'mode of transportation to work office'? Location data from its mobile apps

Of course, the history of digital 'social sorting' ranges back to database marketing & consumer segmentation systems of the 1980s. But in recent years, the traditional consumer data industry (including credit reporting agencies) has joined forces with adtech & platform giants.

This comes close to the implementation of a concept that an author describes as DigitalPoorHouse

Google does similar, but they (probably) have better & more accurate dataset (as they own Android and track everything from search to GPS/WiFi locations, NFC, payments etc.).

More than likely they still have a 'you' account and probably still gathering data.
