In addition, when you visit any site, your computer automatically sends information about it to that site (including your User agent and IP address). DuckDuckGo prevents search leakage by default.

Five things to know before using Facebook Timeline apps Facebook finally unveiled a host of apps this evening that, coupled with Timeline profiles, will bring an entirely new experience to its users. Initially announced at the F8 conference in San Francisco last September, Timeline apps (also known as Open Graph apps) allow brands to add real-world interactions to their applications. Spotify was one of the first companies to release a Timeline app, letting users share what they are listening to with their Facebook friends in real time. For example as a user listens to a song on Spotify, the activity appears as, "Jane Doe is listening to July by Youth Lagoon on Spotify" on Facebook. With tonight's announcement of more than 60 new Timeline apps, users can expect to see more actions beyond listening, like "reading," "watching," "cooking," and "running". But before you add these attractive new apps, consider the way Open Graph works and how exactly it will affect your Facebook experience.
