"Secretly?"

People give so much information up willingly to Facebook, Google, etc. who turn around and sell that info or use it for their own purposes. And then they rage furiously about privacy when some hardware diagnostic info is getting sent to Microsoft (and then probably ignored) in some version of Windows. And then after that, they tell everyone automated license plate scanners being setup all over town is "no big deal" because your license plate can be seen publicly. Nevermind that it essentially creates the ability for real-time vehicle tracking for everyone in its coverage area.

People don't worry enough, and when they do, it's about the wrong things. They are more concerned with how personal the information "feels" rather than what can be done with it.

Lots of bla bla bla ...

When people can't use a program without giving the makers the right to buttfuck all data out of people well....that says alot

Faceshit and that fisheye shethead to fuckberg should just burn up

"Secretly?"

Facebook's metadata collection is second to none. If a webpage has a Facebook.net or .com script installed, your URL habits are being recorded, whether you have a Facebook account or not. Even Bluesnews has Facebook scripts running in the background.

From a technological standpoint, their data harvesting is really impressive, unfortunately it's being used against all of us.

So no, they aren't actively recording "you" per se, but cross checked against other data which they have access to, they or any other big data agency can easily have quite a bit of information on you. Assuming you don't have a Facebook account that you constantly post all the details of your life and the lives of all your friends and family to, that is.

The first rule of fakebook is if you're worried about fakebook, QUIT using it.
