For a billion dollar webiste this company sure is a piece of ...

Social networking giant Facebook promised Tuesday to fix a major privacy breach that allowed it to collect users' browsing information after they had logged out, The Australian reported.
Cubrilovic told The Australian on Tuesday that Facebook engineers had promised to revise the site's browser cookies so that they no longer collected the identifiable information.

"They aim to fix it [the logout issue] by tomorrow [Wednesday]," he said. "There will still be cookies, but they won't be identifiable. That's within 24 hours. We can only take them at their word."


I hope their servers burn.

Surely the same thing happens every time Google serves Adsense ads to users, or the user visits a site with a Google+ button or Google Analytics installed?

You can never know what they are watching and gathering. I'm pretty sure that they are not interested in people's personal life, but what are they looking at or buying. Still, even Google made a similar mistake a while back if I'm not mistaken... I'm not putting my whole trust in them that's for sure.
