Almost everywhere you go on the internet these days has some sort of a Facebook "Like" button at the bottom.
Since it was revealed that Facebook was allegedly using that to sort of "spy" on its users even after they log out...the lawsuits are now pouring in.
An online blog reports that a group of 7 plaintiffs have filed a motion with a U.S. Judicial Panel to consolidate 11 lawsuits and take Facebook to court on the matter.
A few days later, Facebook apparently destroyed those cookies that lingered after logout.
But if you still feel like Facebook is having some "big brother" tendancies, KETK's web developer Andrew Newland says there are a few things you can do.
Both Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox have Facebook 'wipe' programs that clear off those Facebook cookies after you log out.
