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

You've managed to point out *exactly* how easy it is to uniquely and accurately track him!

They have his circle of friends *and* they also have his real name. I don't know about you, but I don't have two friends with the same name. Similarly, I don't have two friends with the same name *and* the same face*.

Thank you. Precisely my point.

Add in that Facebook has probably slurped contact data from the mobile app on your phone, combined with some idiot giving your e-mail address away in that "invite your friend on to Facebook" page and you can then see how very easy indeed it is to triangulate all the data and build a profile of someone who isn't actually a user.

...and yes, I might just be in a few photos - but who said I consented to it?
