This article is a follow-up to our recent interview on LEX 18, the NBC affiliate in Lexington KY.

We were recently interviewed by LEX 18′s Leigh Searcy about internet companies tracking your activity across the web. We chose to look at Facebook since so many people use it. The interview covers how Apps and sites you use might be tracking your progress around the web: what you see, sites you visit, what you do there, etc.. and share it with a social media network or just keep it logged in their system.

How can you minimize what is shared/tracked?

These six items will help you manage your social sharing on Facebook and how Facebook tracks you around the web.

If you have questions or comments about this or other sites, leave them in the comments and we’ll help you.
