Has anyone else noticed the increase of websites that now allow you to log in via facebook... it seems to me that this is not a good thing... much easy to track someone and their browsing habits... it seems a little eerie to me... am i alone?

I have noticed this as well. A bad thing for sure.
I don´t even have facebook, which causes me to be unable to post on some sites where i could post before.
Still, i will never sign up for facebook.

I think it's just you OP.

Lol, 'Spybook' has become so popular that it is being commercialised daily & is used to allow people to connect through different ways, that's all.

Unless you believe in the whole conspiracy of Facebook being used as a CIA-front, that is.

P.S. - I just recently reactivated my account...& I hate the new layout & the whole 'Timeline' thing with a passion!

Yea i never bought into facebook being a CIA information source.. but soon as facebook introduced the "Timeline" the red flags shot up. If you look at the introduction video on facebook's home page you will understand where im coming from. They are basically asking you to put up all your lifes information i.e pictures, home videos, stories from when you have been a child all the way to present day. Its perfect for the CIA, they don't have to go searching for info anymore from difference sources all they have to do is download your timeline and bam easy as pie.

I haven't been forced into timeline yet. But I'm always logged in via smartphone, and don't use a desktop.
I'm dreading timeline!

As far as Facebook being a front for the cia blah blah... but if it it has any truth to it... it makes alot of activity directly tied to an identity, instead of ip addresses and aliases with throw away email addresses.

I LOL'd real good!

I agree though, Ford and other car companies are already putting facebook into their cars so we're close to the point where we won't be able to drive without logging into FB. And why do you need facebook in your car anyway? Is it that important to update your status at every red light and stop sign?? Its bad enough I can't hang out with my friends at the bar anymore because I dont sit there on my mobile chatting with them on their wall...

FACEBOOK MAKES ME ...


That stupid website is an infection if you ask me, and I'm a carrier. I like being in contact with my distant relatives, but I don't like having to be on Facebook just to get into a web site. I pray (and I don't do that often) that ATS NEVER goes down that dark path. The day I can sign into ATS using FB better be the day of the apocalypse...

Nope. (At least, i've tried to remove it form my end).

I mainly use firefox for browsing, two useful plugins i have installed and configured;
Ghostery
Noscript

I've enabled bug blocking on the ghostery plugin and it literally filters out all of the "like "buttons on any webpage, half the time i don't even realize the site is linked to facebook. Noscript blacklist's all _javascript until you allow it for certain sites. Anything Facebook is set to forbidden for me.

I've also got pretty much every facebook related domain set to 0.0.0.0 in my hosts's file.

Facebook is the only "malware" i've not been able to avoid since i started using GNU/Linux or FreeBSD within the past 5+ years. It sucks. even now i've managed to get things to an extent where i don't notice it.... mainstream media headlines tend to have some bledy article about new facebook features on the front page.

It's a disease. Lol.


PS, if a website starts requiring a facebook login to post on the comments/guestbook. I delete it from my bookmarks. If a site uses facebook api's as the primary discussion method... it' not worth visiting or reading their articles in my books.

I've never really liked facebook. It's not something I could see myself using on a regular basis, even if it weren't a CIA front. So, it doesn't really affect me very much, if at all. And I haven't really seen any sites that require you to use Facebook, so I imagine that's a good thing. It is worrying though, given the aforementioned.

You know about the patriot act right? If not you should really check it out.

By the way if you were gonna hire someone and you seen them holding a 40 with a joint in there mouth on there facebook knowing someone working there could look that up. Do you really wanna explain why you hired that guy?
