Facebook “Clear History” Option Doesn’t Really-
Proving the old saying that if something is too good to be true, it usually isn’t, Facebook’s much anticipated privacy feature doesn’t really clear history as much as it just breaks a pipeline flow of user data to 3rd parties. FB still collects info with its “Off-Facebook Activity.”
“The new tool will display a summary of those third-party websites that shared your visit with Facebook, and will allow you to disconnect that browsing history from your Facebook account. You can also opt out of future off-Facebook activity tracking, or selectively stop certain websites from sending your browsing activity to Facebook.” – Nicole Nguyen and Ryan Mac, writing for BuzzFeed News
