Snowden: Facebook is tracking me even though I am not on Facebook.

Snowden: Facebook is tracking me even though I am not on Facebook.

Altnews editor comment:

It requires me to be constantly alert that my web sites and blog posts do not give #Facebook, #Google and others  the opportunity to track and spy on my visitor’s Internet activity.

I see so many of those offending web sites where the webmaster has, mostly innocently, installed code to allow visitors to like and/or share their post on social media and:

Kaboom…

Facebook and Google immediately install a cookie on your device that allows them to spy on every move you make, pages you visit, text you type into (comment, registration and order) forms and search terms you may use. They record your location, time of day and often also the URL and content of every other tab you may have open in your web browser.

Surely this is the work of the Devil? In anyone’s language and everyone’s creed?

My next job is to scan every blog post I copy into one of my posts for the like of the above mentioned devilish spying code. For the time being I cannot guarantee that I will catch them all.

But when you install the fabulous #Open Source  #Ghostery add-on in your web browser at least you will be protected from data stealing spies at your end and on your device.

So, If I have peaked your interest and curiosity do read on to learn more about what the #Technocracy is doing to build a massive profile on you. They know you better than you know yourself IF you let them get away with it.

The salient facts of the new Cambridge Analytica scandal are bad, and the optics are even worse for Facebook, which is already facing multiple battles both in legal courts and the court of public opinion. But this really is just the spilled pot of a long-boiling problem: growing discomfort within our citizen-consumer class over predatory data mining and the unaccountable shadow agencies and corporations being given access to our private lives via social networks. Big Brother has been privatized, and it may turn out to be far more dangerous than anything George Orwell predicted.

Typically, Facebook has been able to duck, dodge, juke, and jive its way out of such entanglements because of the sheer ubiquity of social media in our daily lives, the market value of the company, and its ability to manipulate public opinion. But this time is different. The company hit the politicized buzzsaw of the 2016 election, which is still grinding and sparking from accusations concerning the use of Facebook to spread propaganda (which in reality, of course, is nothing new). In other words, “Facebook’ is appearing in more and more paragraphs containing “Russia,” and in today’s climate, that is worse than a decade of privacy violations.
