Can user download from Google play store?

I wonder if anyone on this planet still uses FackeBook and FaceBook related apps anymoe??????
If yes, then why? Aren't all those data breaches and scandals not enough to stop using 'em????

it's a pity.. Huawei had to be a Chinese brand.

I wonder if it's really needed to have Facebook as a preinstalled app if they don't offer something for ex. 30 days premium. I think everyone knows that Facebook in China is banned and outside of China you can just download them to your phone or otherwise how can Facebook collect download counts /s
