Hello MIUIers


We’re all aware of the deal we make when we sign up with Facebook: we get somewhere to post vacation photos and stalk friends, and Mark Zuckerberg gets to sell your passion for fishing trips to fishing equipment retailers. What you might not realize is how deep or extensive the tracking goes—so let’s shed some light on it.

All of this is well within Facebook’s remit. You’re using its services and, per its privacy policy, it can do what it likes with the data you hand over. There are some ways to limit the reach of Facebook’s data-sucking tentacles, but ultimately the only way to really get back all of your privacy is to delete your account.

Some of the relationship between your actions of Facebook and how Facebook uses those actions for financial gain is immediately obvious: like a page on Coke, and you see more adverts for the fizzy beverage. But less obvious are the ways Facebook joins the dots between the data points it collects, building up a picture of who you are and what you might be interested in—whether or not it’s 100 percent accurate doesn’t really matter, because it can still sell targeted adverts at a higher rate.

“Everything people do, either on Facebook directly or on sites that have a Facebook ‘Like’ button, reveals information about them to Facebook.”


Facebook tracks you even when you’re not on Facebook, because of their extensive surveillance network on sites that link to them.

Even if you’re careful about the advertisers and businesses you interact with on Facebook, the social network’s range of technologies mean it’s very hard to stay completely untracked as you move about the web.

Load up Facebook’s ad policy page and you can learn about some of the ways you might be exposing yourself to eager advertisers—Facebook knows when you share information with a business, sign up for a loyalty program, or even add items to a shopping cart that you then never purchase.

As Facebook’s algorithms get smarter, its automated tracking gets smarter too. For example, facial recognition is a handy little AI trick you can use when you want to call up all the pictures you and your best buddy have been in together, but it also means Facebook can now recognize you in photos without you actually having to go to the trouble of tagging yourself.

It’s up to you whether you find the services of Facebook (or Google or Apple or Amazon) useful enough to be worth the privacy trade-off—but what’s certain is we’re in a new age of data tracking, one that goes way beyond the information we’re actually aware that we’re sharing.
