91.7% of Facebook users want to be tracked

You are awesome for sharing

Facebook and three billion other sites are watching you – but who cares?

In wake of Facebook‘s promise to allow users to opt out of tracking from sites outside Facebook, users say they want to be tracked.

The WeWaT (we Want Tracking) user group has over one billion members and a survey suggests 91.7% of Facebook users will soon join.

WeWat founder, Jemima Millar, 27, said: “We have a right to be tracked and we’re fighting for that right.”

When it was pointed out that opting out was optional, Ms Millar said: “Optional now, but how long before THEY make it compulsory, the EU and governments?”

She continued: “I checked my tracking data and it’s only from 3,127 sites. If it wasn’t for being tracked how would I know what clothes to wear, what to eat or where to go on holiday?”

Founder member Dominic A. Mainwaring, 33, said: “It’s brilliant. You’re merrily surfing along wondering what to eat and there pops up and ad for Joe’s Pizza Palace. It’s uncanny.”

Mr and Mrs Bertram said: “We’d been struggling to conceive and we easily found the best places for IVF.”

Even old people are joining. Bertie Woolman, 73, didn’t like the idea of being ‘followed’ so his grandson removed him. But Bertie asked him to switch it on again after just a week.

“It was terrible,” said Bertie. “I couldn’t find a plumber anywhere and my kitchen flooded. And all the best places for buying incontinence pants disappeared.”

Stan, 71, said; “I thought my supply of those little blue pills would dry up. The wife’s very grateful they didn’t.”

Jemima summed up the group’s attitude: “We all lead busy lives. It’s so much easier when someone tells you what to eat and drink, how to dress, what to buy, where to go, how to decorate.

“And the group specially appreciates being told what to think and who to vote for…”
