The cool thing about the semantic Web is that Facebook can connect with everything you do.
The bad thing about the semantic Web is that you might not want Facebook to see everything you do.
For example, Facebook is set up to automatically reveal in the new ticker what you’re listening to on Spotify. Now, I’m going to have to censor myself. No more guilty pleasure MC Hammer on a Monday morning. Because people will see. And what else are they seeing? Every site I visit. Every blog I browse.
In fact, is it possible that, even while logged out, Facebook knows where I’m going?
Well, many sites have Facebook integration. So, even when you’re offline, you may not really be that. Because new tests have shown that even logged out requests still send cookies, which identify you as a Facebook user.
I am no longer anonymous. Perhaps I never was, but it felt like it.
