What is Facebook Doing With My Data From Oculus Rift?

In a story on Business Insider by Ben Gilbert, Tech Insider the question is raised about Data collected my Facebook Oculus Rift.

In particular the camera recording all of your moves. Seriously, it’s easy to understand why the system would catalog this information. Are people making much ado about nothing?
