Separately, some people complained this year that the social network allowed them to look up a person’s Facebook profile just by typing a phone number into its search bar.

Re: Facebook Tracks You EVERYWHERE
« Reply #4 on: August 29, 2019, 08:56:25 pm »
Here is an email I got today offering to help me use "facebook pixel" to track you.
Yes, this means even if you are not using facebook, facebook is tracking
you.  No way I would subscribe to this crap.
No way would I help them track you, profile you, build a dossier on you.We do NOT use the facebook pixel!

===============================================================         
If you’re new to Facebook Advertising, you may have never heard of one of the most powerful, cost-effective tools called the Facebook Pixel.
Here’s a quick rundown: The Facebook Pixel is a cookie that is placed on the backend of your website and tracks your customers after they click on an ad AND keeps track of everyone on your site that completes an action.If you don’t have the Facebook Pixel installed, Blue Gorilla Digital will help install one prior to any Facebook Advertising to ensure you have this data from the beginning.

How the Facebook Pixel Can Help Your Business Grow:
  • Gain a better understanding of your audience. If you don’t know what your website visitors do when they are on your site, the Pixel will help you keep track of who has been on your site and what they did when they were there
  • \Retarget to people who need a reminder of how awesome your product or service is like sending an ad to shoppers who have abandoned their carts, viewed your website or specific service landing page.
   Create targeted audiences and only focus on people that love your product rather than people who are unlikely to purchase.
A Facebook Pixel is important. If you don't use one, you'll miss out on these benefits.The Blue Gorilla[/color]Interested in learning more about Facebook Advertising? Read these 5 reasons why you NEED Facebook Advertising in our latest blog!

The doorbell-camera company Ring has quietly forged video-sharing partnerships with more than 400 police forces across the United States, granting them potential access to homeowners' camera footage and a powerful role in what the company calls the nation's "new neighborhood watch."

One reason I wont use Ring or any other of those "subscription" security cam companies. Just buy a REAL one, preferably power over ethernet ones. You can set them up so you can view them online also WITHOUT paying some monthly fee for cheesy cameras.
