One of the ways Facebook tracks your activity across the web is with a cross site tracking pixel that's embedded in many of the social voting and sharing buttons you find on different websites. Fortunately, its fairly easy to block using a browser plugin:
- Disconnect FaceBook Tracking Pixel Extension . (Blocks Facebook tracking scripts).
- Disconnect Extension (Blocks multiple websites tracking scripts).
(Editors note we aren't affiliated in any way with the extensions listed above, so if you want to be a dick and attack them that's all on you.)
You should NEVER have the Facebook App installed on any phone you actually use, it tracks every call you make, every place you visit, every person you are near, and every website you visit.
