Facebook Denies Monitoring Its Users

The world’s most famous social networking service Facebook made an announcement where he has denied the earlier expressed claims that it’s been monitoring its users’ activities and data with an indestructible cookie, even after the users have left the website.


It was an Australian insecurity expert named Nik Cubrilovic, who recently exposed Facebook for using cookies to monitor its users after they have logged off from the social network. This claim caused many worries to Facebook users and industry experts. Indeed, the issue was important enough to get worried – rare people would be glad to know that their sensitive information is recorded and can later be given or sold to someone. Meanwhile, the media were quick to release the respond Facebook made in regards to this accusation. According to the newspapers, Facebook engineer Gregg Stefancik confirmed that the social networking service changes cookies when Facebook users log out, but it never deletes them. In excuse, Facebook representative explained that it was only made as a safety measure. He also pointed out that the company would never use the cookies to monitor its users’ behavior or, God forbids, sell their sensitive information.

Facebook was also quick to release a written statement, where it denied that it tracked its users via the Internet. They insist that cookies are only used to personalize the material, and are employed to maintain and enhance Facebook’s deeds, such as measuring click-through rates. They are also very useful to keep underage children from trying to register with a different age. Logged-out cookies can also be used to identify spammers and phishers, and are useful in detecting an unauthorized computer’s attempt to access your account.

Of course, none of the data the social network receives when the user sees a social plug-in can be used to target advertisements. It also deletes or anonymizes such content during three months. Facebook testified that such information is never sold or given to anyone.

Nevertheless, there are signs indicating that Facebook is getting out of hand. For example, a week ago it showed off new 3rd-party applications able to automatically share every action you take, like every song you listen to, every article you read and every video you watch.

fusseltier avatarfacebook is for idiots and losers.
everyone by now should know you can not trust that site, its been proven time and again they sell your info and are doing things deceitful even if they say they are not or if they say they are giving you more control over your info and what you do.
stupid idiots that have some sort of inferiority or other types of personal complexes that they think people are interested in their lives and the meaningless things they do.
