I don't use Farcebook, it is one of the most evil corporations on the planet today.

What the article fails to mention is that Facebook and a bunch of other sites like Yahoo, like to pester you with a little tickbox when you log on that says innocently "keep me logged in". What they don't tell you is that if you check this box not only do you not have to log in next time you visit the site, but all of you internet activity after you tick that box is sent to them, not just what you do at their sites.

That checkbox is meaningless. Facebook can track you regardless of what you do with it. Thinking you're not tracked because you leave it unchecked is wrong.

Thinking you're not tracked because you don't have a Facebook account is even more wrong. The amount of personally identifiable information about you is vast. Facebook has access to it regardless of your account status with them.
