Facebook has come up with “Instant personalisation” so what’s this? This allows partners to access your public information (Surely it enhances your experience on other specially selected 3rd party sites?) as it says:
“We’ve partnered with a few websites to provide you with great, personalised experiences the moment you arrive, such as immediately playing the music you like or displaying friends’ reviews. To tailor your experience, these partners only access public information (like your name and profile picture) and information available to everyone.” – Facebook
To turn off instant personalisation on all partner sites, un-tick the box and follow:
Go to Account > Privacy Settings > Apps & Websites >Instant Personalization > edit settings & uncheck “Enable” (if available for you!) It shares your information with other website(s)
after all, they can’t just share information with third party sites surely without our consent surely?
