    Everywhere I go online, there is my little Facebook thumbnail shot staring at me. Hey, sometimes I'm on websites anonymously shilling my own stuff, yet THEY know who I am! How can I duck and cover? Should I sign out on Facebook each time? I really don't like Facebook tracking me all over the web.

    :aloha: I am Zuckerberg, I am here to conquer your planet.

    LoL, are you really that terrified ? Sign-out of ur account and clear your browser history & stuff and you will be under the radar, also you can install another browser ( FF, Chrome, Safari, Opera ... duno what ur using ) and use the new one to surf peacefully

    Firefox does this for me too if I stay logged in to Facebook.
    Just log out of facebook and clear your cookies.

    Also download AVG and they have a nice little plugin called AVG Do Not Track. Works wonders and lets you know when you're being tracked so you can make them stop.

    I do not have a Facebook account so this doesn't happen. On the downside, I cannot stalk people that I pretend to be friends with only to see their photos and do not get to hear about their gossip.

    Never mind - those are good things.

    Great phrase. Has powerful resonance. Bet there's a micro-niche in there.
