Thus, the trackers eventually are placed on websites for various reasons. Google Analytics treats websites to cover the amount of traffics on their websites. Whereas, Facebook categories the “Like” feature and the data return back to Facebook. Overall the trackers receive daily traffic for the websites.

Thus, the concerns are bigger to consider the number of private times we spend. However, Google and Facebook might consider checking their policies not to track porn sites for marketing strategies.
