Good Day ATS,

This subject has me thinking. Can FB really get away with tracking your every move? If you sign into FB for the first time, I'm sure there is some kind of ToS that says they can take your first born child. When you look at the information that FB takes from you and applied that to a real person, you could have that person charged with stalking. That person would go into the slammer.

Just look at what they can find out about you by tracking your every move. Offsite Source - ATS Source

For FB, I suppose there is no such thing? Is it possible to sue them for stalking? You would say that since a person agrees to the ToS when creating an account, they pretty much give up that right. What about the person who does NOT have a FB account? Can't that person sue? After all, you don't even need to have an account for FB to track your every move, according to one Source.


Facebook is watching you. They’re watching your behavior in other tabs, your browsing history, and even your location data, then they’re providing that data to advertisers. The worst part? Even if you don’t have a Facebook account, they can and will track you anyway.


Are there any lawyers in the house? I'm curious to know just what charges could be pressed against FB for being a stalker. I'm sure you would have to have million of $$$ to even challenge them but there must also be a way to take it to court without having to put up millions or billions of dollars for the courts to hear it. That's what we have the Supreme Court for, right?

Goes to show you just how difficult it is to fight 'The Man'. Sadly... we're not even talking about the government, here.


One more problem that came to mind... Any and all privacy is null and void the moment you even subscribe to the internet in general. SOMEONE is always going to track you. Your provider - Google is everywhere - FB - Yahoo... You name it. Someone is always watching.

If, as a FB user you agree to the Terms of Service (and it says they can do what they are doing therein), you have given consent and they are not "in the wrong".

But for non-FB users, that's an interesting one. Not sure how they could track identify a person if they aren't already on FB. Unless FB has their own "intelligence" department that is illegally spying on people like the NSA does

It's usually a cookie they drop in your system but the delivery system is what I'm curious about. Seems like it would/should have to start from either their own page or a partner site. Otherwise, I would consider that hacking and illegal. *shrugs* I'm curious myself. They could very well be breaking laws.

Personally, tracking should be considered hacking from the start and even if you agree by the ToS, it should be illegal. This BS ToS that everyone is using is a dangerous thing IMO. It would take you 20 lifetimes to read all of the ToS for everything that passes in front of you. There is no way any person could keep up with it all.

farcebook™ is a tool used by 'The Man' so that throws out Your "its not even the gov't." Why else would Agent Zuckerberg surprise everyone He has ever met by getting married the very next day after netting $100B in the fictitious IPO the day before? The last place to get married is in Ca. an 'auto 50% State' so when Your grandkids find out that farcebook™ is nothing more than an info 'clearing house' they can only get back $50B because 'Mrs. Zuckerberg (also an Agent) is guaranteed HALF.....

Same thing with the "Obama Phone" (Which was actually started by Ronnie Raygun..) There is a stipulation in the contract that they have the "right" to mind Your 'snip' but because nobody reads the contract, instead asking "where do I sign..?"

You might also look into the Executive Order by POTuS from 2012-2013 re: the Gov't. using 'psyops' not to spy but to "better service the citizens, many times they don't know what is best for them... This will provide a more streamlined access for information to provide services..."


Also when someone says/types/utters "Google™ is Your friend..." These people are ALSO lying to You...

TBH, I don't think you can only blame Facebook, but I think it's just the way the world operates now...

MetaData is collected from everybody, everywhere, all the time...

This data includes, location, time, etc. etc. ... just about everything...

It pretty much has to be collected in order to sustain a 'connected' society...
But whether or not the info is being sold to other parties is another story -

They have become a CIA asset. Even if you dont believe me literally, you cannot deny they behave as if they have.

If thats the case, i feel sorry for them and their cohorts.

They probably dove into lives (including mine) that are literal pandoras boxes and they probably should have #ed off.


People and companies can try and justify unregulated curiosity. It doesnt usually yield good fruit.

It's your choice to use FB. If you feel they are abusing the privileges of housing all your info - delete your profile.
FB is just one huge NSA database, it's your CHOICE to be a part of it.
