Facebook – Long known to collect a great deal of data about you whether you are logged in or not, Facebook has updated its policy here.  I only use Facebook to display links to posts here on this blog, and have a group to share ideas, progress and projects inspired by my blog generated by users.  I would highly recommend using a Facebook Container add on extension or plug in to your browser to compartmentalize what Facebook has access to. When you install this extension it will delete your Facebook cookies and log you out of Facebook. The next time you visit Facebook it will open in a new blue-colored browser tab (aka “container tab”).  See the link for a full explanation of how it works.  The container add on for Firefox can be found here to stop Facebook from tracking your use of websites via cookies.
