How can you achieve any privacy while using facebook, or smartphone in the first place. I mean, talking about privacy on any mobile device is very very stupid. There is a real problem towards ignorance here. How can anyone promote privacy as a quality of an app, when it's impossible to verify, and when the phone itself must be infected by other apps to the bone?

Too bad, that the market actually take advantage of the laziness to know and research of comfort of peoples, ready to give up their privacy for the compangy "they trust".

About monstruous company that gained trust and is seen as "friend", steam is the perfect exemple.

Has anyone researched, in-depth, the Facebook, et al., "SHARE" inserts put on web content by third parties? That is, the "Like Button" and other social media embedded services.

I remember Stallman pointing out that Facebook is able to collect metrics from these anytime, ANYONE, Facebook user or not, visits a site. For the sake of a basic example, logging the IP while performing the GET request for the "LIKE" icon.

I know the concept makes it possible but there is some heavy Java Script behind all this and would be very curious to understand how exactly all that works.
