You could take the real conspiratorial alternative that Facebook has an ATS member database so that TPTB can keep track of what all these domestic terrorists are doing in their personal lives.

I became aware of this website Quantcast months ago, because every single page my husband tried to open in his browser was redirecting to it! It was so freaky.
The second link that lead to HOME now leads to a page that affirms PRIVATE CONTENT ! as if i was some pervert having fun with the authorities.

If you have information to the contrary on how such things are able to be done, I'd love to see a link/source.

Actually it all has to do with your browser.
If you don't believe me, try this:
1.) Install a third-party browser on your computer like Opera, Chrome, Firefox, etc.
2.) Use that third-party browser to create a Facebook Profile identical to the one you have now.
3.) Login and out of your Facebook account a couple of times and see if the ATS suggestions come up (they won't).
4.) Open your regular browser (probably Internet Explorer if you are on Windows, Safari if you are on a Mac, or Konqueror if you are on Linux) and log into ATS, and then log in to your Facebook Account. Note that the ATS suggestions come up now.
5.) Verify by opening your 3rd Party Browser and logging into Facebook. Unless they write that session data to their database, it should come up without the same ATS suggestions as before. Now, use the 3rd Party Browser to go to ATS and then go back to Facebook. Voila! The ATS suggestions all of a sudden appear, even in another browser!
Welcome to the world of no privacy!

Being a novice in regards to internet privacy, I'm not quite sure if I understood the point you were trying to make. Are you saying that as long as I use a 3rd party browser like Firefox (which I do use) to access Facebook and ATS that I am protected? If not, what suggestions would you offer to enhance internet anonymity?
