Is there a more evil, diabolical, sinister company than Facebook? I’m weary of the continuous dripping of new facts that make the leading social network scarier than ever. HINT: Just imagine all the things we don’t know about Facebook. The latest news is that Facebook tracks disabled accounts.
Facebook Tracks Disabled Accounts
So, you want to get off the grid? Then you should disable your Facebook account. Right? Wrong!
A new report reveals that Facebook tracks (aka, invades the privacy) of disabled accounts and their owners.
The story is at CNet:
Even when your account is deactivated, the social network continues collecting data about your online activities. All that data gets sent back to Facebook and is tied to your account while it’s in this state of limbo. It’s as if you’d changed nothing.
Deleting Your Facebook Account Doesn’t Work
You can go ahead and delete your Facebook account. However, avoid unrealistic expectations:
How should we respond?
Awareness is the foundation of online security. In some cases, all you can do is learn about the threats and minimize their impact on you.
For example, now that you know that Even if you don’t have an account, Facebook tracks disabled accounts, what should you do? After all, even if you delete your Facebook account, that company is still tracking everything you do online.
Besides, I can give you a couple of pretty good reasons to keep your Facebook account.
You can demand that the corrupt politicians that represent you enact laws to regulate Facebook. How effective do you think that would be? Facebook has more money than most countries: They can buy anyone and everyone who has power.
So, just realize that Facebook is evil. Keep your personal data off of Facebook. Use tools such as uBlock Origin (not uBlock!)to block Facebook pixels.
