Okay, here's an article from the Electronic Frontier Foundation that says that the little fucker at Facebook is collecting data on us via that goddamned 'Like' button:

https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2018/04/f ... creepy-ads

The money quote:

$1:
But how does Facebook know to serve you an ad for a specific product right after you talk about it? What explains seeing ads for things you have never searched for or communicated about online? The list is long. Instead of listening to your conversations through your phone, Facebook:

tracks you through Like buttons across the web, whether or not you are logged in or even have a Facebook account.


I've been saying that for years! Facebook, because of scripts run from 'Facebook.net' collects data on every comment on CKA. They may not be able to tie that comment to a specific person if they are't on Facebook, but they still create a stealth profile of that person. Then one day to answer some random poll like "What your foot size says about you", and your email is collected and suddenly all that Stealth data isn't stealth anymore.

I didn’t even know CKA was on Facebook. But then again neither am I.


I am not nor ever will be on FB. And since we are on the topic of that fascist org, it is about time Canadian media parted ways with them. It irks me no end that many news outlets use it as a method to post comments. They should go back to having their own comments section.


You don't have to be on Facebook for Facebook to know who you are.

If so, then I support getting rid of it. I doubt its ever been used here anyway.


Yup. That's the one. It collects information on us even if we don't have a Facebook account.

Yes, apparently FB stocks are not doing well.

Karma!
