What would be an answer to the question?
THAT is an answer to the question.
Using a VPN will prevent your ISP from seeing what you're doing (except that they see your connection to a VPN) but it doesn't prevent anyone from seeing your traffic from the VPN. In case of a criminal or civil action, your VPN provider can be forced to give you up.
Not to mention, the records that organizations keep of who you are and what you are doing are tied to the information you give them. Did you use your real name and birthday on Facebook?
For not being tracked by ad agencies and such, something like Adblock Plus is your best bet.
