I didn't want to hear about my friend's relationship status being updated, so how is it people are tolerating this freak show spy center? Hopefully people boycott this Bilderberg funded privacy scam.

These services, Facebook, ATS, Twitter are free for us to enjoy. And just like TV, it's the commercials (tracking/analytic cookies) are what pays these websites to keep the servers running and folks employed on staff to make these websites work. I have no problem with sites doing this.. in fact, cookies are less obtrusive then TV commercials. But, it's when websites change the rules without telling you that I don't agree with - like Facebook Timeline. ATS on the other hand has been transparent from the start, which is what makes this particular site work well.edit on 3-10-2011 by Jason88 because: (no reason given)

That's incorrect, and not entirely possible.
Cookies may only be read by the domain that wrote it in the first place. So, for example, it's not possible for code hosted by ATS to "see" the cookies on your computer written by other sites.
It is just this sort of lies and dissinformation (The quoted text, not what Skeptic wrote) whic is rife in this thread. Everyone is so paranoid about all this information which is being collected. And I have asked time and againwithout answer what on earth I could possibly have to worry abuot, and yet no one can answer me. Everyone goes on about the big bad FB but can't tell me why I should worry too. They just keep saying "Ih but they know everything about you" and they don't of course, but even if they did, how does this harm me or cost me any money, or impinge on my health or my ability to go about my daily business? It does not is the answer. This is a storm in a tea cup is the answer.
