Did you know that Facebook actively tracks you if you visit porn websites? If you’re logged on Facebook and go on any adult entertainment website or shady porn website, chances are that the porn website has a Facebook plug-in button. This Facebook plug-in will actively track you down and know that your have been surfing porn.
Facebook tracks your surfing habits because the social networking giant collects data about the websites you’re visiting so they can target the ads you see – including your taste in porn.
According to their data policy, Facebook states:
“We collect information when you visit or use third-party websites and apps that use our Services (like when they offer our Like button or Facebook Log In or use our measurement and advertising services).Facebook ‘Share’ and ‘Like’ buttons actively track visitors visiting any website despite the fact that the social media network had promised these wouldn’t be used to track its users seven years back.
“This includes information about the websites and apps you visit, your use of our Services on those websites and apps, as well as information the developer or publisher of the app or website provides to you or us.”
Facebook won’t use porn surfing habits to target you with sexual ads but the worrying thing is that Facebook will know exactly what you have been watching.
The only option left for you, if you are an avid porn fan, is to log out of Facebook and use VPN and/or Tor to surf such adult entertainments sites without the fear of tracking
