Have you ever think how social networks [like this] track and identify users [apart of login, obviously]?
are there privacy related problems?
i dont know all the way they do it
but i know one of those methods, described in this doc by MIT http://people.csail.mit.edu/edmond/projects/keystroke/keystroke-biometrics.pdf
the paper is old, so you can image how many improvements have come in these last years.you could possibly change account, login using your friends account, create a new account and use it in an internet cafe'but it is unuseful: they can yet identify you using a biometric parameter: keystroke.it's like a fingerprint that never leave youa
possible remedy is cut and paste (write in a text editor, like notepad,
then paste) but remember: DO NOT EVER USE DIRECT TYPEING into a comment
box (on facebook, myspace or whatever else)you can note keystroke biometrics measurement in action simply by posting comments on facebook using a not too fast computer.i
tried on a 1Ghz PC and i was able to type much more fast than PC
calculating the typeing pattern.make people know about this technology!let circulate the info!and now: 2 interesting films on bittorrent p2p network:
