Yes, It's Facebook.
Not only is facebook keeping note of everything you do and say in your facebook account, its also following you around the internet, even when you are
not logged into your facebook account. When you log out of facebook and browse other sites facebook is still watching you.
If this is not enough to wake folks up about facebook I don't think anything will. If people are still stupid enough to stay with facebook after this
then nothing will make them leave.
Infact facebook probably now know that from here on they can probably get away with anything.
Facebook has admitted that it has been watching the web pages its members visit – even when they have logged out.
Most would assume that Facebook stops monitoring them after they leave its site, but technology bloggers discovered this was not the case.
"In fact, data has been regularly sent back to the social network’s servers – data that could be worth billions when creating 'targeted'
advertising based on the sites users visit.
The website’s practices were exposed by Australian technology blogger Nik Cubrilovic and have provoked a furious response across the internet.
If you are logged in to Facebook, the cookies will still send the information, and they remain on your computer unless you manually delete them.
'It's just the latest privacy issue to affect a company that has a long history of blunders relating to user's private information."
Of course I'm sure Facebook isn't the only site to do this???? are they? Have you ever noticed any local adds when your logged into your favourite
websites?? Guess this story could be closer to home than some might think.
I wonder what other sites use this sneaky kind of tracking? anyone have any suggestions?
