Face­book track­ing

When it comes to track­ing, Face­book is an­other com­pany that you have to be wary of.

APC Australia - - Superguide Google Privacy Check -

The om­nipres­ence of Face­book wid­gets such as ‘Like’ but­tons pro­vides Face­book with in­cred­i­ble amounts of in­for­ma­tion about your on­line ac­tiv­ity. Ev­ery time you visit a site with a ‘Like’ but­ton, Face­book can know about it. And Face­book has not been as forth­com­ing about its track­ing ac­tiv­ity as Google, and it doesn’t pro­vide the same means of delet­ing and re­view­ing your records. Thank­fully, the browser pri­vacy add-ons like Dis­con­nect and Ghostery are also ef­fec­tive against Face­book wid­gets. More on cur­tail­ing Face­book on page 64.
