Facebook watches every website you visit even when you are not logged in; Here is how you can disable Facebook monitoring and tracking your non-FB use

Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter are the de-facto kings of social media. You can’t imagine a day in your life without using Facebook, Twitter or Instagram at least once a day. However, signing up for one of the three social media networks doesn’t mean that they should know what you do during the time you are not on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram. However, Facebook does track you even if you have shut down FB or signed out. This raises serious privacy issues as Facebook can sell this information to n number of advertisers for money or a disgruntled Facebook employee could leak these details.
