What I found most amusing, however, was this:
|Tracking my ‘Ads Topics’ on Facebook|
Facebook doesn’t track your Likes. They track your Ads Topics.
It’s always been obvious that Likes are a mechanism for showing you ads. But it’s still funny to see it explicitly labelled this way, without any pretense. [To clarify -- the list is every Page you’ve Liked, not every liked item]
(It doesn’t seem to be particularly effective, unfortunately -- to date according to my archive I’ve only clicked on one ad so far...)
I also found the reminder that Facebook can track facial recognition data (for users outside of the E.U.) a little disquieting.
Um, ‘Like’ this post?
