I'd say Google is the lesser of two evils compared to Facebook.

At least with Google you still own your data, even though they might mine it for advertising, you still own it at the end of the day. With Facebook, everything you post there automatically becomes their property.

That being said, I believe there are apps out there (if your phone is rooted) that allow you to block other apps from gaining such access. Kind of like a firewall. Not sure what it's called off hand though.
