Facebook "accidentally" tracks your browsing. Of course, no one believes this was an accident. It's far too lucrative.

Spread the word. Start petitions. Create groups for collective account deletion. Overthrow Zuckerberg, and cost him millions upon millions of users (dollars). He may get away with this legally, but that will not stop us from raising our swords!


Seriously, though. Hypothetically-speaking, "the people" could migrate over to Google+ en masse. Stick it to Zuckerberg. All it takes is a tidal wave of awareness and catchy mantras to rile up the masses. Let's dethrone this devil (not a Jewish slur).

They're going to notice that I browse a lot of ANUS. Oh noes. :(

Also, who could possibly be against cookies? Chocolate chip ftw.

Google is NOTORIOUS for tracking. Welcome to the internet.

Only peanut butter oatmeal is real.

Ego land will not crumble.
the basic reason is because the aspect of checking out hot chicks and knowing their availability, and chicks getting attention will never ever die.

Yes, but I obviously want Zuckerberg to fall. At least Google's tracking serves purpose in UI's. Zuckerberg is just trying to gain some more cash.

Facebook has always been notorious when it comes to privacy. Anybody who signs up for facebook deserves all the sodomy they'll get.

Also, what do you expect from a free service? That they do it out of love and generosity?

This is faulty logic, and you know it.

You're wandering around the city and you're hungry. There are two restaurants in the street. One is a cheap Italian restaurant, the other an expensive restaurant that specializes in French dishes. Oh, and there's a guy handing out free food on the street as well, not sure where he got the food from but hey it's free! Choose where you will eat and follow your logic.

That has nothing to do with invading people's privacy and storing personal data on a server >__>  Facebook claims to serve one purpose: connect people online within the Facebook domain. In no way does privacy violation contribute to this function. Facebook never included such information in the terms of use or info pages. Therefore, the spying was wrong, and Zuckerberg was caught. If you would do a little research, "free" services have limits too. Free =/= Anarchy/Anything goes

By the way, profits ARE made. Otherwise, Zuckerberg wouldn't be so damn rich. Plenty of money is made off of Facebook. Facebook is obviously a company, so your "love and generosity" tantalization is for naught.

Believe what you want to believe though.

If you and all the other "victims" would have done a little research you would have known facebook is notoriously bad when it comes to privacy. I live in a country where all internet activity data of every civilian is stored on servers for three months (it used to be six months) for "counter-terrorist" purposes, my country also has the highest amount of phone taps in the entire world. Yep, don't expect me to care much about a free social networking site where the owner likes to spy on what porn sites his users visit after they log out having spent their day playing point-and-click games and posting photos of themselves partying.

Buyer beware. If you're going to consume a product or service, the provider isn't under much obligation to quality control for or disclose anything to the consumer outside of what is contained within legal grounds. The provider is probably justly positioned to maximize their own advantage over whatever random people come along to take advantage of what is offered.

Should there be disclosure about any strings attached to the service or defect so that the consumer is better informed? I believe so. Since it is the case that disclosure about the provider's activities has taken place, it is now entirely up to the consumer to determine whether they are comfortable with the ethics of the arrangement.

This leaves Facebook faultless in the arrangement. Nobody is forced to use the service. The data harvesting activity is widely known. Anyone still using the service therefore concedes to having their activities logged by Facebook. They are okay with the ethics involved. It probably even states as much in their terms of service document. I've never used it so I don't know.

Typical human failings like ignorance and apathy are a better target for destruction than any specific manifest entity like a person or a business. Except for the under 120s.
