Do you use Bing?  After finding out about their SSL mistake, do you still trust the folks at Bing?

Are you asking if I trust MS? If I trust Google? If I trust Apple? If I trust Facebook? If I trust any US based company?

Hint: all answers are the same.

Good to know you have consistent answers for all these hard-to-answer questions. If I find myself logged on to any social sites such as google or msn, I log out before I search anything with any engine. No I don't use bing either. My wife was in the market for a product, A. She searched on amazon and didn't make a purchase. She did later purchase from a local store. Not long ago she received some email ad about product A on sale from amazon and she's pretty certain why she received the ad. It doesn't take someone like her with her internet smart to know we are all being tracked.

Today's random google search word for me, taters. You won't be able to profile me, google! Interesting find indeed. "What's taters, precious?" thank you google LOL

A little while ago I looked up "BIC pens for her" on Amazon. I had heard the reviews were very funny (they are hilarious). I did not do anything other than look at the reviews. Didn't bookmark them, or buy them or put them on a wish list.

Now every month or so I get an email from Amazon asking if I am interested in more BIC pens, because I "showed interest" in the other pens.

I was logged into Amazon at the time (probably because of my YouTube account).

Imagine for a minute it had been Viagra. And I was just looking for a laugh. And then I regularly get emails offering to sell me the stuff because of my "interest". And my wife or children see the emails. What conclusions would they draw?

Very soon, Nick, they will require you to log in to one of the social media account in order to view or give opinion (already required for youtube) to any posts or videos. And there will be no escape. You searched it once, it's on your file somewhere.

All your search result are belong to us!  smiley-razz

Don't be fooled
Facebook (and others) know where you have been. Every page containing a Facebook "I like" button results in a hit on Facebook with your Facebook Cookie so Facebook knows you visited that page. So don't hold back on pushing the "I like" button for privacy reasons. You were there; it is to late to deny.

Sorry for the bad news

Facebook still won't know if I like it if I don't push that button, or does hovering for 5 second above the thumb up already trigger some data flow?!

That is true. They don't know whether you like it or not. Even if you pushed the button they wouldn't know because you may like it for several reasons (It's your boss his wife  smiley-cool.
They do know you were one way or another routed to the page that contained the "I like button" and that is what they are interested in.

www.bing.com uses an invalid security certificate.

The certificate is only valid for the following names:
  a248.e.akamai.net , *.akamaihd.net , *.akamaihd-staging.net 

(Error code: ssl_error_bad_cert_domain)

It's just a problem with Bing's integration with Akamai.

But whose fault is that? Akamai or Microsoft? I'd vote for Akamai smiley-wink

I recommend to install the "collusion" add on to firefox and have it track the trackers for a while. Most probably you will be surprised by the results.
