Tor Asked on November 30, 2021
Sorry for the noob question.
This is facebook’s onion url – facebookcorewwwi.onion
If people want to use facebook anonymously, they can just use facebook with their tor browser right? Why does facebook have to have a onion site? My idea is only if fb want hide themselves, they should be having an onion site. But it is said that fb is running tor hidden service to give users anonymity. I don’t undertand how the fb hidden service improves user’s anonymity?
Possibly three reasons.
As suggested, access beyond the clearnet where Facebook is blocked;
Providing a service as an onion address allows Tor to be used to access it without exit nodes at all.

Onion services aren't just about hiding things. They are about providing a platform for users who need to be anonymous.
The fact is that many countries block Facebook but Tor users are still able to access it via the onion service.
