right now I see google+1, quantcast, gorilla nation and google analytic are currently trying to plug in to my pc.
I see this kind of talk a lot and believe it for the most part, but who are they selling our info to?
I've been on ATS for almost 2 years and my gf has been on FB since forever, and we get zero phone calls, paper mail or email, salesmen, or anything
related to the places we traverse online while ATS and FB remain open on the browsers.
If they are selling our information, it can't be to any company that makes a profit because no one has tried selling us anything from our online
related activity, unless we requested to be on the emailing lists. I do get Gmail hacker attempts from China from time to time though.
Regardless, I think we'd all prefer to not be "tracked".
