No, me neither.
However, there are some who are excited about the new changes Zuckerberg and his team have implemented, and, as per usual, those that aren't.
A technology expert in Australia exposed the fact that FB can track your internet activity even after you log out of your account, and, although it's been kind of obvious by the fact that if you visit a site with a FB button, you generally see your pretty face right there next to the comment section. Therefore, it was a no-brainer to me that FB uses tracking cookies to follow your every move.
Apparently, our browsers are sending input back to Zuckerberg's systems, so if you'd rather not, you may want to consider using a different browser for your internet surfing, i.e. Firefox for Facebook, and Chrome for going elsewhere online--or whatever browers you use.
With the ever-increasing willingness (or numbness) to share private information, an online advertiser would give anything for such information on 800 million customers wouldn't they?
What would you do if you were given the opportunity to direct such qualified, verified and fully profiled customers and their data on your particular niche?
This information is obviously for commercial purposes so that they can continue assembling a detailed profile on you so that they can advertise with precise input from your online shopping, blogging, interests, and habits.
Pretty smart, huh?
OK, so it's a little creepy, and all the privacy advocates are up in arms again, and I personally tend to agree with them, but I know a lot of people actually aren't bothered by the blatant infringements.
It appears that the Timeline feature offers users the ability to track their entire history in chronological order within FB, including who they have removed from their friends list and when.
With a current valuation of US$100 billion, the power of the social networking behemoth seems unstoppable.
Put it this way, the "log out" button in Facebook should probably be renamed, and here are a few ideas:
"See you on the other side"
"You can't be serious?"
"It's not going to happen"
"We never sleep, sucker!"
Lastly, probably most of us were made aware of the hoax posts going around that Facebook was going to start charging monthly fees for your account, however, don't believe it.
If Facebook were to implement fees, that would be the best thing that could ever happen for g+ in that most people would jump ship, and I'm pretty sure Zuckerberg is not silly enough to lose his empire so easily.
Just a few thoughts...
