Facebook CIA's knows where you go on the web. Facebook track your cookies even after logout

the blog hacker Nik Cubrilovic :
Remember when Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg said you need to get over the fact that there is no privacy on the internet? He meant it.

A video documents Facebook's connection to the CIA.

Many people, however, think the fun of posting on and the interaction of Facebook overshadows the downside, or they merely ignore the negative aspects.

Well, it turns out it is worse than we previously thought.

Hacker and writer Nik Cubrilovic has a post on his blog revealing some really scary and downright police state Stasi-like aspects of the popular "service" that doubles as a data-mining operation for the CIA.

Cubrilovic writes that Facebook keeps track of every website destination you visit, even if YOU ARE LOGGED OUT OF FACEBOOK. It does this through the cookies it routinely plants on your computer.

Again, Facebook is connected to the CIA and the DIA (the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency). It is common knowledge, so much so it is now the subject of satire.

Google says you can disable this "feature," but don't believe them. Google, like Facebook, is in bed with the CIA. In fact, Google's search technology is preferred by spook and snoop agencies, including the NSA.

Dave Winer wrote a timely piece this morning about how Facebook is scaring him since the new API allows applications to post status items to your Facebook timeline without a users intervention. It is an extension of Facebook Instant and they call it frictionless sharing. The privacy concern here is that because you no longer have to explicitly opt-in to share an item, you may accidentally share a page or an event that you did not intend others to see.

The advice is to log out of Facebook. But logging out of Facebook only de-authorizes your browser from the web application, a number of cookies (including your account number) are still sent along to all requests to Even if you are logged out, Facebook still knows and can track every page you visit. The only solution is to delete every Facebook cookie in your browser, or to use a separate browser for Facebook interactions.

Here is what is happening, as viewed by the HTTP headers on requests to First, a normal request to the web interface as a logged in user sends the following cookies:

Note: I have both fudged the values of each cookie and added line wraps for legibility
