Facebook Tests Software to Track Your Cursor on Screen

Quote:
Facebook Inc. is testing technology that would greatly expand the scope of data that it collects about its users, the head of the company’s analytics group said Tuesday.

The social network may start collecting data on minute user interactions with its content, such as how long a user’s cursor hovers over a certain part of its website, or whether a user’s newsfeed is visible at a given moment on the screen of his or her mobile phone, Facebook analytics chief Ken Rudin said Tuesday during an interview.

I do believe that most people that use Facebook don't know or care what Facebook does with their information or how they gather that information.

Here is how I'll deal with this: I'll move my cursor to the white section on either the left or the right, so they don't know which post I'm actually reading.
