Facebook admits it does track non-users, for their own good

When non-Facebook sites add a “Like” button (a social plugin, in Baser's terminology), visitors to those sites are tracked: Facebook gets their IP address, browser and OS fingerprint, and visited site.

Not if Facebook is in the noscript kill list and that is one damn good reason for it to be.
