For years, activists and media have supplied Facebook with a long menu of white supremacist groups to target, and to its credit, it’s finally budging a little (emphasis on little). Last week, Facebook deactivated nearly 200 accounts tied to the white supremacist groups the Proud Boys and the American Guard. Facebook is being proactive, and now it’s chosen to go after...uh...skinheads. All skinheads, be they anti-fascist, anti-racist, or just ska fans.#facepalm #Facebook #politics #AntiRacism
Facebook has introduced a tool that lets you see which third-party websites and apps are sending it your browsing history, and stop them doing so in future.Oh, really? And what if you haven't got a Facebook account?
The feature, which is currently available in Ireland, Spain and South Korea, is found in the mobile app's settings under the heading 'Off-Facebook Activity'. It allows you to see which companies have shared data about your browsing habits using tracking tools like The Facebook Pixel and Facebook Login.
