Journal: Blockbuster reveals your rentals on facebook... 3

Journal by IcyNeko
Blockbuster and Facebook recently teamed up to bring a whole new level of privacy invasion! Now, when you visit Blockbuster Online, they use cookies to find your facebook account and then post all your rentals in your news and profile... all without your consent!

This happened to me, and when I wrote BBOnline about this, their helpful customer service replied by explaining how they do it.

"When you log in to your BLOCKBUSTER Online account, the site uses "cookies" to determine if you have ever visited Facebook.com.

If cookies detect that you have a Facebook account, regardless of whether or not you have installed the Movie Clique(TM) application, then activities on blockbuster.com such as rating movies or adding movies to your Queue will be sent as notifications to your mini-feed and friends' profiles."

Opportunities are usually disguised as hard work, so most people don't recognize them.
