It’s an interesting story and a worrying trend. I’m an avid FB’er with my friends and family but I’m not keen on how much information they want to gather on me.

The alleged FB engineers was quoted as saying “Generally, unlike other major internet companies, we have no interest in tracking people”.

Not sure I agree with that — they track a lot of what you do already!

Just as an example, one of my friends had a new bathroom fitted the other day and she posted pics on her FB. Since looking at the pics I keep being shown adverts within facebook about bathrooms — clever stuff!
