This Is How Facebook Is Tracking Your Internet Activity

And here we go again… FACEBOOKcontinues it’s assault on your privacy.

In testing out the new Abine DNT+ tool, we noticed that Facebook has more than 200 “trackers” watching our internet activity.

Abine defines trackers as “a request that a webpage tries to make your browser perform that will share information intended to record, profile, or share your online activity.” The trackers come in the shape of cookies, Javascript, 1-pixel beacons, and Iframes.

Critics call this spying. Advertisers call it targeting. As a user and consumer, what do you call it?
