I loved this question online because it represents how many of us feel. The post I found is: www.ritholtz.com/blog/2011/12/how-can-i-stop-facebook-following-me-around-the-web/. It’s ironic because this post will make it back onto Facebook and be planted and follow Barry Ritholtz even more.
I have 67 APPS on Facebook. It is so easy to allow all the different websites online to Sign-Up and Sign-In using Facebook. This allows Facebook to track everything I do online. If you actually switch over to Bing.com, a search engine similar to google.com, you can see what all your friends like. There are pictures next to websites. Bing has a partnership with Facebook. It is all being tracked.
I was curious at the difference so I searched on “EdgySocialMedia.” First on Bing and then on Google.
SEARCH ON BING
SEARCH ON GOOGLE
You can see where my friend’s on Facebook liked my Facebook site. On Google you can also see I have myself a +1 button. At the time, I really wasn’t sure what I was doing but now that I look back it probably doesn’t look very cool that I am the only one that +1 my pages.
If you have a minute, please feel free to search for EdgySocialMedia on GOOGLE and +1 me. At the moment it’s a little like being the only one that liked your Fan Page! Feel free to leave a comment down below on your company’s name and I’ll search for it and +1 it!!!! Check out this quick video I made on +1.
Why does this matter? People are worried Facebook and other major brands are tracking their every move. I was creeped out before by just watching TV: CHECK THIS OUT.
The final question. Do we take worry about Privacy, Technological Changes and Who Knows What You Say/Watch/Where/When? I have stay informed and be thoughtful in what I post.
