Facebook Tracking Profile Views

A piece of Facebook’s source code somehow showed up in one user’s browser. From “Facebook has a built in ability to track who’s looking at your profile” at digg:

I was on facebook and out of no where some of the php source code showed up (I didn’t do anything illegal, and I still don’t know why it showed up). I browsed through it and found this interesting bit. Make of it what you will.

Partial transcript of the image:

// Monitoring these people's profile viewage.
// stored in central db on profile views.
// Helpful for law enforcement to monitor stalkers and stalkees.
// Wayne
//
// [blurred]
// [blurred]

function monitar-usey-ictl~ity(%userid){
$monitor = array('[blurred]' => 1, '[blurred]' => 1); // Put baddies (hotties?) in here

return ($monitor[$userid] || check_super($user_id)); // Stalk ourselves too.

The authenticity of the code is questionable. If it is indeed real, the code comments provide an interesting glimpse into Facebook culture.

    Great article. Your blog post actually got me thinking about launching my own small business. Has anyone here encountered find a vape supplier com? It is basically a cutting edge market place for vape businesses. I am thinking of launching an e-liquid product line (liquid for vaporizers) but instead of committing money into a web site, hosting, internet marketing and web marketing, I am thinking of listing with find a vape supplier com since it enables you to generate your own profile page and list items. It is very similar to ebay but it is aimed at businesses. The signing up is free of cost as the platform is in beta edition. Do give me a shout if you have some experience with this system. Would be fantastic to hear your thoughts.
