Facebook Patented Tracking Method

Although the social networking service Facebook has previously denied that it was interested in what its members do on other online locations, the news is that some evidence has been found that Facebook had developed its own technology to do just that.


One of the Australian bloggers has found a patent that was dated October 2011. According to the information the patent contained, Facebook has described there a method to monitor information about the activities of the social network’s members while on another domain.
The blogger explained that tracking cookies are able to monitor Facebook users whenever they surf any online services having an integrated Facebook “like” button.

One of the Illinois residents has already filed a lawsuit over such tracking on behalf of Facebook users in the United States, so he is currently seeking class action status. As for the most popular social network in the world, it previously claimed that cookies were tracking users by mistake. However, the latest post of the plaintiffs proved that Facebook hasn’t turned the tracking off. Instead, it patented it!

The representatives of Facebook maintain the official line that tracking cookies have only been installed when the registered members accessed Facebook.com. However, the opponents revealed that the cookies were set by all websites containing Facebook widgets. Moreover, it was found out that one of the tracking cookies monitors the users’ activity even if they had never been to the Facebook website at all, and even if they have never clicked a “like” or “share” button.

This is not the first time the cookie was found out: it was disabled after an outcry in The Wall Street Journal earlier in 2011, but later it has quietly returned. The patent, bearing the catchy title “Communicating Information in a Social Network System about Activities from Another Domain”, is all about tracking Facebook members outside of Facebook.com domain. The patent describes maintaining a “profile” of the users while they are moving around the Internet, as well as logging the actions taken on the 3rd-party domains.

In response, a spokesman for Facebook claimed that the patent wasn’t intended to track those users who had logged out from the social networking site. Facebook has also pointed out that the idea in question has only been patented, but hasn’t been used yet.

danny226 avatarfacebook getting cheeky, ive noticed on my phone that it keeps enabling the GPS reciver whenever i press update, and if it is turned off in the settings it says it can't work without it, so they know where i am at all times, how long will it be before they start to pass information to the police

im thinking of deleting facebook now

menahunie avatarGoogle does the same thing and many others.
Just think law enforcement use software to check Facebook when they are doing investigations; there is allot more going on people don't know about.

kingtiger01 avatarGoogle+ does it, its another form of advertisement tracking.. And its BS. Apple got sued over GPS tracking data, so why are facebook/google allowed to do it on Phones...

Whats even worse is content tracking, i mean, its none of THERE bussiness. What we do online is are private business. The internet is a great tool, with 1000's of articles on almost everything, it doesnt mean everything you visit you will again... Curiosity is the Human Condition. - Just because some one watches 2girls one cup, doesnt mean there into scat... And deff, dont need Facebook partnering with some one to market it to youre email and post status updates about it... Again, WE ARE ANONYMOUS, We are the Internet.

menahunie avatarI don't even bother with these social network sites way too dangerous..
What do you think web bots and spiders are? Same thing and it has been going on for years. Just find and use software to stop these from being loaded on your system. I've had sites that wouldn't let me visit because I blocked this crap; so they didn't get my business.

No avatarIt's unbelievable.. but in the same time I'm not surprised that Facebook will do just about anything to increase their earnings caring not about us (the users) and our right to privacy!!

My take on this: vectorash.ro/facebook_tracking_activity_after_logoff/

peachfuzz avatar...And we were supposed to be surprised by this. Never been to facebook.com and never will. Leave it for the stupidity of the masses, who don't care whether their movements and actions online are tracked or not. As long as they're tracking the millions of people who log on to FaceBook, they probably aren't gonna be worried about the 23% of the world that doesn't.
