Well, you should know that Facebook actively tracks what you do online. And that includes all your porn browsing habits too. So if you are surfing for porn online, you better make sure that you are logged out of Facebook from other tabs and browsers.

If you are logged in on Facebook and are visiting any shady websites, Facebook can easily track what you are doing. Porn websites and other adult entertainment websites could be hosting a Facebook plug-in button to like their page or share articles. This plug-in will track you down and know what you are surfing online.

 

Just like Google, Facebook also tracks all of your web surfing urls since the social networking giant is collecting data about your browsing habits to target you with ads. These ads will be tuned to show you advertisements according to your taste of online stuff, including porn.

Facebook does mention that they are collecting data from your browser to introduce advertisements that you they would like you to see. These ads are tailored according to your online browsing habits. “We collect information when you visit or use third-party websites and apps that use our Services (like when they offer our Like button or Facebook Log In or use our measurement and advertising services). This includes information about the websites and apps you visit, your use of our Services on those websites and apps, as well as information the developer or publisher of the app or website provides to you or us,” says Facebook’s data policy Facebook’s share and like buttons are actively tracking visitors to websites they surf.

 

However, you don’t need to worry as much as Facebook won’t target your PC with sexual ads. But what could be a worrying fact is that Facebook knows which websites you have been staring at.

So if you are bothered about Facebook knowing what type of porn you like, you could ensure that you have logged out of Facebook and use a VPN to secure your online fantasies. In that manner, we advise you to log out of all websites before doing so and possibly make use of a separate browser for all your secret activities.
