Facebook is Watching

How do you feel about Facebook? If you’re on Facebook it knows a LOT about your personal life ... what you like ... what you don’t ... and that’s used to target ads at you online.

It’s not just Facebook that does it ... Google ... Apple ... and many others track you.

Now Facebook’s announced it’s going to track you online even if you don’t even use it!

Biscuits Chocolate Chip

The Wall Street Journal’s reporting the social media giant will use cookies, "like" buttons, and other plug-ins embedded on third-party sites to track members and non-members alike.

If that sounds like Latin to you ... you probably won’t know what to do to stop them tracking you...

Facebook says it’s so it can increase its ability to ‘serve’ the right ads to the right people...

In Europe a court’s ruled it has to display a warning outlining its use of ‘cookies’ ... which are like little data memory samples of where you’ve been on the internet ...

So what do you do if you don’t want all these big companies tracking your personal tastes and web history?

Don’t go online..!?

But how would life work without the internet?
