Stop companies from tracking you.
Facebook can keep on monitoring internet users’ activities even if they have logged off its website.

Using Facebook Connect, and some other social plug-ins, Facebook can launch a cookie on any website that has a "like" or "share" button, which provides Facebook access to an amazing amount of user information, the Business Insider website reported on Thursday.

The plug-ins are used to verify users, but the program also has the ability to gather personal information, such as the IP address of the internet user’s computer, browsing data, outside login information, phone numbers, and so on.

Using a cookie called the "datr" cookie, among other things, Facebook can get information on what the internet user has read on a webpage, even if the user did not click the "like" button. According to the Wall Street Journal, "for this to work, a person only needs to have logged into Facebook or Twitter once in the past month. The sites will continue to collect browsing data, even if the person closes their browser or turns off their computers."

However, there is some light at the end of the tunnel, and internet users can still evade the ubiquitous eyes of Big Brother.

Abine, Ghostery, and some other companies have developed tools that allow users to block Facebook social plug-ins, cookies, and other trackers and that help users control how and when their information is tracked and distributed.

"Berfikir tanpa kotak"

Ar Ra'isul Mutakallim, Tabligh Ki Zabaan (Lidah Tabligh) Hadrat Maulana Umar Palanpuri Rahmatullahu 'alaihi berkata: "Orang yang kuat adalah orang yang sanggup bertahan dalam arus kerosakan. Orang yang lebih kuat adalah orang yang sanggup melawan arus kerosakan. Namun orang yang paling kuat adalah orang yang sanggup merubah arah arus kerosakan hingga menjadi akannya arus kebaikan.”

“Dajjal bersama tenteranya mempunyai kekuatan yang amat istimewa dan amat tersusun. Begitu juga Yakjuj dan Makjuj membuat huru-hara di seluruh dunia. Kehebatan mereka tiada siapa yang dapat melawan dan orang beriman berundur dengan hanya makan zikir dan tasbih."

"Allah zahirkan kudratnya hanya dengan labah-labah yang kecil dijadikan asbab untuk menggigit tengkuk-tengkuk mereka hingga mati. Mayat mereka begitu busuk diseluruh dunia. Orang beriman tidak tahan terus berdoa pada Allah. Allah ta'ala hantarkan hujan dan banjir menghanyutkan mereka ke laut. Inilah yang akan berlaku di akhir zaman nanti."

"Amalan dakwah memisahkan hak dan batil seperti air menghanyutkan sampah dari emas dan logam-logam yang lain. Namun pekerja² agama jika wujud cinta dunia dalam hati mereka seperti emas dan disaluti logam-logam lain, maka banyak masalah yang akan timbul.”
