Why does it matter? Didn't you read the OP's post?
because that "one company" can be "compromised(hackers, Chinese, Russians) or shared(NSA, CIA, UK)" your personal info/data, they can also use your data against you(like a lawyer) or sell your data(like facebook or google).
Here's why it matters
1. you don't "hack a company"
2. Facebook and Google don't "sell your data," they USE your data, usually to show you ads you're more likely to click on. It would be dumb for them to sell their data to anyone, it's much more valuable for them to keep it to themselves, not to mention it would probably go against their policy.
Of course I read the OP's embarrassing piece of filth. The real question is have you read anything EXCEPT the occasional piece of clickbait, I am guessing NOT
