I don't get it, first of all yeah they can make out peoples habits, but isn't that the reason why people like specific things, to show others?
And what is the problem with that?
news.com has a recommend button. Sneaky sneaky.
I thought the point of "liking" something was to show everyone what you're interested in and your habits...
Oh lawd finally.
This is brilliant. A country actually taking a stand for web privacy and user rights.
there is a simple solution to this
don't click the button
this is silly
And then Germany understands nothing about the Internet
I support privacy on the internet, but when you click 'Like', you're intending to let other people know you like it. It's not supposed to be private in any way.
It's not about german websites, but websites under german jurisdiction, aka that are hosted there.
And germany had for some time already several laws about privacy.
When they put a "Like" button there, they expect you to know that you're gonna show that you liked the page to all of your friends. It's doesn't have anything to do with invading your privacy.

Looks like Germany is going back to fascism.
A couple of pixels...ILLEGAL!
I just liked a friend's status...
FICK DIE POLIZEI
This will probably be turned into one of those hitler sences from the movie "downfall"
We should get rid of Schleswig-Holstein, nothing good comes from there anyway.
Putting the law into good use.
That's fucking retarded, when I like something, it means I want people to know I like it and it also changes the little advertisements on the side according to what I like, which is really really useful as both an advertiser and a consumer.
They track which sites you have visited with a facebook like button. And probably use it to add specific types of advertisements to your profile page. AKA, target you for specific ads which is probably illegal in Germany. I support this as Germany is the first country to actually do something about user privacy.
