Why does everything pull from facebook?

Alright, I know the logical "Why" I mean, if something is allowed to pull your info, and your friends through a system of legal agreements and web links then why not? It makes marketing REALLY easy.

 

But, It's just really annoying to me. I went to rotten tomatoes, having never been there before, without ever creating an account, and I Noticed my facebook profile picture in the corner... perplexed, I hovered over it and went to profile... only to reveal that it already had my full name and various other details. While a little unsettling, not so much as when I first encountered something like this. (FB adds showing related items I searched for on Amazon in the sidebar)

 

It just gets under my skin.

I get that too. They should really ask you if you want those settings to carry over to other sites.

That's the thing, they probably do. That nice not so little thing called "Terms and conditions" All they have to do is warn you when they change them, they could care less if you read them, it's not their problem.

This really gets me mad like for real why do they do this. They need to ask before. Same thing with my youtube account being tied to google and now I'm so paranoid I don't watch porn anymore.

I'm not a fan of it either. Tbh, I don't even have anything real 'persay' on my FB account. But even with that, it's downright scary what they can gather from people information wise.

Some weeks I ask myself if I should delete me facebook now, but its one of the few ways to keep in touch with people.

We're talking about in general. Not just the PS4.

 

And in fact, it depends entirely on your settings.

I have no social media whatsoever. I will make a couple dumby accounts so I can utilize the share features on my PS4, but nothing more. I have an addictive personality and know my limits.

Use Google Chrome and make an incognito page.
