Facebook Can Track Users' Browsing History

Facebook Can Track Users' Browsing History

Facebook is known to track its users' online habits, even when logged out of the social networking site, and then delivering targeted ads when they're signed in.

U.S. District Judge Edward Davila on Friday, June 30, stated that the plaintiffs didn't manage to prove that they had "reasonable expectation of privacy", or suffered "realistic" economic harm or loss. The judge further added that the petitioners could have taken considerable steps for hiding their browsing histories by using several platforms such as the incognito mode or the opt-out tool by the Digital Advertising Alliance.

Internet privacy has been a much-discussed issue since President Donald Trump signed a bill in April repealing rules passed a year ago under former President Barack Obama that would have given internet users greater control over what internet service providers can do with their data.




When one clicks on a like button generated by Facebook on a third party website, one is allowed to share bits and pieces if information or content of the page on Facebook exterminating the need to copy and paste the link on the social media page.

Facebook already knows more about you than you think. When a Facebook user visits a website that features a Facebook "like" button, information is sent back to Facebook servers detailing where the user found the like button. While they won't be able to use the same arguments again, the plaintiffs can, if they wish, bring a new suit that pursues a breach of contract claim.

When asked for comment a Facebook spokeswoman told The Guardian, "We are pleased with the court's ruling". He dismissed an earlier version of the same case in October 2015.
