Yesterday, Facebook released a long-awaited feature that lets you see exactly which websites are stalking you — even when you’re not on Facebook.
The new “Off-Facebook Activity” tracker spits out a list of the apps and sites that share your activity with Camp Zuckerberg. The platform can see when you visit a website or open an app, or add an item to your shopping cart, just to name a few examples.
Go here and click on “Manage Your Off-Facebook Activity” to peer into your personal abyss.
If your total depresses you, play along with us: Gamify that sh*t.
We conducted an informal poll to find out which contributor to your favorite email racked up the most shameful score. Here’s the leaderboard:
- Steph Smith: 1,236 apps and websites (“Omg I won/lost
- Mark Dent: 1,170
- Conor Grant: 1,017
- Caroline Dohack: 860 (Including, um, “Gun Dog Supply.” No gun dog, she explained — “They just make sturdy collars.”)
- Nick DeSantis: 566
- Zachary Crockett: 514 (Highlight: bat-removal service at batproblems.net.)
- Brad Wolverton: 180 (Apparently only tracked by media outlets and his climbing gym)
Oh, by the way: If your total really creeps you out, you can delete your history or disconnect yourself from future tracking.
