Facebook Still Tracks You After You Deactivate Account by BackwardsCompatible in TechSec

[–]BackwardsCompatible[S] 7 insightful - 1 fun7 insightful - 0 fun8 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Unless you stop using Android devices and stop using the internet. You can't. Even if you never had an account, they still track you. Android applications and other sources feed data to Facebook. They make too much money off of that data to ever back off and unless legal actions take place, it isn't going anywhere any time soon. One thing I will have to look into though are the EU regulations about a user having full rights to their account and information.

I will post another article about the android apps and if I find a few other good related ones, will post those too.

It is like this on Facebook too. I feel so bad for Pewds, but I know his community has been supporting him.

Go down in a blaze of glory and get your account banned instead? Jokes aside, they should make the link easier to locate.

Seriously censored Youtube video, never seen this done. by SundogsPlace in SundogsPlace

I can't even click on the video to start it on mobile. I know it says "some features" but technically the entire video is censored for me if I can't even watch it. that's odd and not good IMO.

I am going into Information Security. The job market for that is always growing and I find the concepts very interesting.

As for moving, its a few hours away from "home hom", but the drive doesn't feel unreasonable. Its almost like Animal Cross IRL except I have a job. My apartment is pretty much empty lol

There’s Something Sinister Happening In Reddit’s Incest Communities — Besides Incest by useless_aether in MeanwhileOnReddit

[–]BackwardsCompatible 4 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 0 fun5 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

That article is cancer in its own, geez.

And this is why reddit is censoring everything too. I actually assumed most of the incest stuff was a joke or shitposting. However I know there are people out there that are legit too.

I pretty much left reddit too. A lot if my favorite subs got banned or went to shit due to modmins. You post in one sub and then 5 others ban you for it. What a joke.

They fined and arrested people over a TRIAL? I wouldn't want my face recorded either. Also what if I'm wearing a scarf cause it's cold? I guess anyone hiding their face is up to no good now. /s

I hate how this whole facial recognition thing is slowly spreading. China, airports, and so on. They will all probably claim "it's public space" but that shouldn't give them the right to tell us we cant hide our faces.

Why not just post a link to the fix that can be installed WITHOUT enabling Studies? This sounds like a clever plan to get more people to share their data via Studies…

The fix in question can be installed by clicking this link [1]. It’s signed by Mozilla.

VPN your IP, delete any and all accounts related to Facebook, you could potentially stop it. Delete old data? I would say no.

I would still personally argue no.

In several other articles I posted, Facebook tracks you even I you do not have an account. Simply logging out won't solve anything. Also apps feed data to Facebook regardless of if you have a Facebook or not. That I another article I posted as well.

Honestly it'll just be all the same stuff on all the subs. I don't mean like reposts, there just won't be actual diversity. It'll be all the same "wholesome" and "safe space" type content resulting in a single echo chamber across the entire site.
