FACEBOOK QUIETLY OPTS USERS INTO OFF-SITE AD TRACKING: HERE’S HOW TO DISABLE IT

Social media site changes users’ privacy settings without their consent

MAY 31, 2016

Facebook recently began tracking and serving ads to web users who don’t even have an account on the social media site. In doing so, Facebook also quietly changed the ad settings of its users without their consent.

As reported by The Wall Street Journal, Facebook will target both users and non-users across the web to show them advertisements by tracking them with everything from cookies to “like” buttons.

“Our buttons and plugins send over basic information about users’ browsing sessions. For non-Facebook members, previously we didn’t use it,” Andrew Bosworth, vice president of Facebook’s ads and business platform, told the Journal. “Now we’ll use it to better understand how to target those people.”

As noted by David Carroll, associate professor of media design at Parsons School of Design, Facebook users who had previously opted out of being shown ads based on their browsing were opted back in without being told.

Under the ad settings, the option that reads “Ads on apps and websites off of the Facebook Companies” should be changed to “No” along with the other sections.

Carroll suggests that Facebook may have also violated its settlement with the FTC by not obtaining “consumers’ affirmative express consent before enacting changes that override their privacy preferences.”

Although opting out of behaviorally-targeted ads is a step in the right direction, Facebook can still track users, as previously mentioned, through cookies and “like” buttons.

Several browser extensions mitigate these issues by blocking such buttons altogether, further limiting Facebook’s ability to follow web users from site to site.

UblockAlthough extensions such as “AdBlock” and “AdBlock Plus” lead in popularity, questionable moves by both companies, which include allowing some ads by default, have shifted privacy advocates towards “uBlock Origin.” – available for Firefox and Chrome.

“Instead of ABP, many users are now moving to uBlock Origin,” says security expert Andrew Case in his online security guide. “It provides the same benefits as Ad Block Plus without the potentially questionable business practices — and also without allowing paid advertisers to bypass the filters.”

Users can also vote with their dollars and disable the app on specific websites they wish to support by clicking the large power button.

Other worthwhile extensions also include the Electronic Frontier Foundation’s “Privacy Badger,” which similarly works to block online tracking.

Software company “Brave” has even gone as far as to create a web browser that blocks ads and trackers automatically.

While web users can be tracked numerous other ways, these few steps can make a significant difference.

Dan Kelly

Fuck you Crystal!!! The people have spoken …and spoken loudly.. Trump has received more votes ,by far any other republican candidate EVER !!!Now get on board or get the fuck out of the way!!!
yde & cristina de jong

The Crystal gang just proves flagrant contempt of the US electorate. If your party refuses to unite the electorate should unite massively behind Trump giving him the chance to fire them one by one. The electorate deserves a break.
Jeb Rothberg

And here is a perfect example of disgusting dirty Jews trying to sabotage nations, and why they have been kicked out of over 100 nations throughout history. Bill Kristol is a treasonous Jew who puts Israel and his tribe first.

A third party doesn’t have time to get on the ballot in all the states. Besides what is their platform going to be; open borders, unfair trade, higher taxes, more wars. Trump is a conservative not a RINO. He’s a nationalist not a globalist, a free market entrepreneur not a socialist. The RINOs don’t have anyone they can run that would take votes away from Trump. He already has enough to win the presidential election.

Bill Kristol is a Zionist who holds duel citizenship in Israel and the USA. He is one of the controllers. Brian Kilmeade is a Zionist shill who supports everything his puppet masters tell his to say.

Leftist Mob Protests Trump In Oregon

Published on May 31, 2016

Donald Trump makes an appearance in Eugene, Oregon, and a pro Trump Latino family is harassed by a bunch of privileged whites. Anarchists, communists, illegal aliens, and other wackjob groups turn out to protest Trump’s appearance. Fights nearly break out, other Trump supporters are shamed, USSR and Mexican flags are on display, a mariachi band plays, and other general insanity in Eugene, Oregon, May 6th, 2016.

If you love Mexico so much then go to Mexico and I bet you will be begging to come back to America.

PS: What this election cycle has shown for all to see is that Western civilization is under severe attack by radical leftists who want to see it annihilated. The left loves to flood our nations with 3rd world foreigners of antagonistic cultures because they know they will not assimilate and will vote left for the free goodies and welfare. Tony Blair literally admitted this was the plan, and to “rub diversity into the faces of the lower classes.” Every single one of those who hold Mexican flags while attacking America as an ideal, need to be kicked out by the military. They are not and never will be Americans, they’re invaders hell-bent on destroying what our forefathers built.

SiriusXM Announces Suspension of Glenn Beck over Brad Thor Interview Comments

by BREITBART NEWS31 May 2016

SiriusXM hosts Stephen K. Bannon and David Webb announced on Breitbart News Daily that SiriusXM has suspended Glenn Beck and Webb will temporarily take over Beck’s 9AM to noon Eastern time slot on SiriusXM’s Patriot Channel 125.

SiriusXM issued the following statement:

SiriusXM encourages a diversity of discourse and opinion on our talk programs. However, comments recently made by a guest on the independently produced Glenn Beck Program, in our judgement, may be reasonably construed by some to have been advocating harm against an individual currently running for office, which we cannot and will not condone. For that reason, we have suspended The Glenn Beck Program from our Patriot channel for the coming week and are evaluating its place in our lineup going forward. SiriusXM is committed to a spirited, robust, yet responsible political conversation and believes this action reflects those values.

The suspension is in response to the interview Beck did with fiction author Brad Thor last Wednesday, in which Thor likened the GOP’s presumptive nominee Donald Trump to a South American-style dictator who would cause an “extinction-level event” for the country if elected. Thor then declared that in such a case, Congress would not be able to remove Trump from office by “legal means” through impeachment, so Thor asked “what patriot will step up and do that” if Trump oversteps his Constitutional restraints. Beck agreed with Thor’s assessment.

Here is the exchange:

THOR: He is a danger to America and I got to ask you a question and this is serious and this could ring down incredible heat on me because I’m about to suggest something very bad. It is a hypothetical I am going to ask as a thriller writer.

With the feckless, spineless Congress we have, who will stand in the way of Donald Trump overstepping his constitutional authority as President? If Congress won’t remove him from office, what patriot will step up and do that if, if, he oversteps his mandate as president, his constitutional-granted authority, I should say, as president.

If he oversteps that, how do we get him out of office? And I don’t think there is a legal means available. I think it will be a terrible, terrible position the American people will be in to get Trump out of office because you won’t be able to do it through Congress.

BECK: I would agree with you on that and I don’t think you actually have the voices we’ve been talking about and we’ve been talking about this off-air for a while. I think the voices like ours go away. I don’t think we are allowed – especially if things, and I believe the economy is going to go to crap, even if Jesus was in office. It’s going to naturally reset. It has to.

After receiving criticism for these comments from people who believed Thor and Beck were suggesting or at least implying assassination, Beck offered a lengthy defense of his statements. You can read the full transcript of his defense here.
