03 Mar Facebook Keeping Tabs on Internet Activity of Non-Facebook Users
A reporter from New Zealand Herald recently tested rumors that Facebook had been tracking even non-Facebook users and found that the social networking platform had amassed significant personal data on him, even trivial information such as chat logs and site history.
However, Facebook gathers these information even if the user is not logged in by social media plugins and cookies which follow a user’s online activity via third-party websites. This has earned the tech giant significant backlash from privacy campaigners all over the world.
It was noted that a Belgian court had already ordered Facebook this February to stop tracking internet users in the country who are not registered on the platform, or face fines of €250,000 a day.
