Facebook and Privacy – concerns

Seems Facebook uses cookies to track where you go on the web, and report those journies back to FB.  This occurs EVEN WHEN YOU ARE NOT LOGGED IN.

My sources are competent people in the business.  Dave Winer, whose inventions facilitated the rise of social media posted some thoughts yesterday.  He links to another who has tried, without success, to get Facebook to acknowledge what he decoded.

This is serious enough to consider abandoning facebook and placing FB on appropriate notice that such behavior is beyond normal expectations of privacy, or lack thereof, when using an online media tool.
