He added, Even after you are logged out, Facebook is able to track your browser's page every time you visit a website. He wrote in his blog, "With my browser logged out of Facebook, whenever I visit any page with a Facebook like button, or share button, or any other widget, the information, including my account ID, is still being sent to Facebook."
