For quite some time now, Facebook's user tracking hasn't been limited to your time on the site: any third-party web site or service that's connected to Facebook or that uses a Like button is sending over your information, without your explicit permission...

what do you think!!

to be honest, it doesn't shock me at all.
whatever you don on the web, you should almost expect it to be public.
If you've got something to hide, then don't go hiding on the web.

Not surprised either. Kinda glad I deleted my account, to be honest. Been over a month and I really don't miss it  Two Thumbs

Yeah if you are that worried there are options like the Tor browser (slow) and scroogle for anonymous searching. Countless others I'm sure. I agree though that you can't expect anything you use on the web to remain private. Especially with Facebook having shareholders to please, so expect it to get worse. Thanks for the link though as its been going through my mind of late.

http://wiki.openrightsgroup.org/wiki/Communications_Capabilities_Development_Programme

Quote
The precursor to the Communications Capabilities Development Programme was the 'Intercept Modernisation Programme' was first proposed in the third term of the Labour government(2006). This idea was never introduced formally by Labour and the programme was on hold in 2010 when the government changed.

The proposals were initially expected to include a centralised database containing information gathered by CSP(Communications Service Provider/s) on internet communications data and telephone communications data.

This would be used for the purpose of 'maintaining capabilities' of police, public safety and national security authorities in order to keep up with terrorism and organised crime. Data collected would also include information that is not usually gathered by CSPs, such as email recipients or details from instant messages, and other third-party data - data which could only be gathered through interception and "deep packet inspection".

It appears that the plans for a centralised database have been scrapped in favour of assisting CSPs(perhaps using public funds) in maintaining their own databases of collated data from which authorities could, with the proper authorisation, take information and use it to improve their services. Although this is certainly a better option than a centralised database, there are still serious issues about the technical feasibility, the cost, and of course privacy. Worryingly, the Home Office now says that the use of IMP will not be limited to terrorism or organised crime

Shirley you can just log out every time you use fb and then regularly clean your cookies?

ccleaner is good for that

this is a pretty useful firefox plugin for firefox:

Did you know that social networking sites like Facebook, Google+, and Twitter can track your visits to any web page that uses the familiar "Like", "Follow", or "+1" buttons, even if you do not actually click these buttons?

The Priv3 Firefox extension lets you remain logged in to the social networking sites you use and still browse the web, knowing that those third-party sites only learn where you go on the web when you want them to. All this happens transparently, without the need to maintain any filters. Priv3 is free to use for anyone.

Facebook certainly aren't the first and they certainly won't be the last. There's a hoard of companies which make dosh out of monitoring your surfing habits and selling that on to marketing.

Thing is with Facebook, it requires you to have a cookie from logging in for them to track you, otherwise they've only got your IP or any third party cookies to reference. As soon as they make the cookie tracking URL the same as the main Facebook page URL, blocking at hosts will block any access to Facebook.
