Facebook Finally Shuts Down Facebook Beacon

Facebook Beacon Goes Bye Bye. . . It Won't Be Missed

Just uttering the words Facebook Beacon gives me the heebie jeebies. Who can forget when FB rolled out its little mini-feed, which automatically shared your purchasing info, right on your profile for everyone to see? But it didn't stop there, we soon learned that there were a number of third-party sites tracking your buying habits even after Facebook launched its opt out of Beacon option.

Well after a class-action lawsuit against Beacon, Facebook has finally agreed to shut it down completely. They are also going to give $9.5 million towards an online privacy fund.
