In my seminar group, we have had a few discussions about privacy in social media. Facebook, and what they are doing with our personal data, has been brought up more than once. I guess most of you have heard of it, but speculations arose earlier this year that Facebook is tracking you even after you log off by using cookies in your browser. Like me, maybe you are also a bit annoyed about the Facebook widgets that keep showing on up on websites left and right, sharing your surfing behaviour with Mr Zuckerberg.
To stop sharing any external information with Facebook, I would recommend using the browser plug-in Facebook Disconnect. The software blocks Facebook widgets on external sites from automatically sending your information back to Facebook, but Facebook itself will still work as normal!
