Cookie company Facebook introduced the ability to use third-party cookies to track visitors to the site. But the idea went back to Facebook in late 2009, when the company first launched its Internet Explorer br예스카지노owser to power a Web-connected TV set — and was based on the premise that users were being tracked by those sites, and were therefore better able to tailor the content on their computers. A year after its debut, Microsoft introduced Windows Web Extensions, a browser tool that helps users install third-party software on their computers — the way that Web-based apps might be installed for iOS or Android.
Facebook’s Internet Explorer was already a relatively low profile operating system. And with the popularity of Web-based email services like Microsoft Outlook and Google’s Gmail, Microsoft wanted to make that operating system, too.
So Facebook added two features that allow the company to track user behavior on the Web — along with a user-interface tool called Mailbox that Microsoft calls its “personal assistant.”
Facebook’s privacy notice about Mailbox states that users must accept certain terms and conditions before opening the site and giving it access to their email.
As a result, in the case of Yahoo Mail, Facebook is “aware of the fact tha바카라사이트t Yahoo Mail (and its related products) contain advertising바카라사이트” as a result of users having opted in to Yahoo’s mail service. “In addition to that, Yahoo Mail includes tracking methods to measure advertising impressions,” Facebook adds. “These include, among other things, Google Analytics, which tracks page views based on the number of people who are coming to a particular page.”
Facebook also states that it is only collecting this data for the purposes of determining the legitimacy of your contacts, and that no “cookie is shared with Yahoo or any third party for these purposes.”
The company is still able to determine whether any individual user may have a problem with Yahoo Mail, and it will let users know by email if their account is suspended. (In the Yahoo Mail case, Facebook says it has done this for “tens of thousands of accounts.”)
Yahoo is a far weaker player than Facebook, which could have made a big push for Yahoo’s services but did not want to give up its dominance
