The jig is up, Facebook! We know what you did. We're not exactly sure how you did it, but that was not cool. Don't track me, bro.

Turns out that Facebook is tracking user activity on the internets without the user even having to be logged in to Facebook. Sites that use Facebook's advertising platform, Beacon, will transmit data back to Facebook even when the user isn't logged in.

Facebook was supposed to allow users to limit the amount of data they collect and track, but it still doesn't change the fact that they are transmitting information when they absolutely should not be.

They still claim that the information is anonymous, but you just went on notice, Facebook. You've done almost no wrong up until now, but this takes the e-cake.
