Submission + - Facebook "Like" button declared illegal in Germany (everythingnew.net) 2

hasanabbas1987 writes: "So we had it established that Ze GermanZ don’t like Facebook when they brought the website’s facial recognition feature under fire, which simply helped tagging friends quickly in photos. Now they are at it again and this time they have announced that the Facebook “Like” button is illegal. Germany take no nonsense about their privacy issues and have declared that the Like button is in violation of the privacy laws. Thilo Weicher, an official for the northern German state of Schelswig-Holstein data protection center, says that the Like button has the programming to track a person’s movement across the internet which is in violation of the data protection laws in Europe."
