Core Condor writes "According to a famous enterprenuer and hacker, Nik Cubrilovic- "Logging out of Facebook is not enough". 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." After explaining the cookies behavior he also suggested the solution to overcome from it- "The only solution to Facebook not knowing who you are is to delete all Facebook cookies.""
