Facebook denies tracking users

Earlier in the week, Nik Cubrilovic, an Australian technologist, claimed Facebook was using cookies to track what users were doing, even after they had logged out of Facebook.

However, Facebook has released a written statement, saying:

“Facebook does not track users across the web. Instead, we use cookies on social plug-ins to personalise content (e.g. show you what your friends liked), to help maintain and improve what we do (e.g. measure click-through rate), or for safety and security (e.g. keeping underage kids from trying to sign up with a different age). No information we receive when you see a social plug-in is used to target ads, we delete or anonymise this information within 90 days, and we never sell your information.”
