Facebook introduces 'scary' new setting that you have to opt out of - here's what you have to do

Facebook has added a new 'setting' letting people choose whether or not they want to be tracked and shown adverts.

It comes after the social network said it would add ads that track and were used across all the internet - even if you did not have a Facebook profile or page.

Facebook has said it does let people switch off the tracking, but users have to actually opt out of the system and manually turn it off.

The site has always offered people the option to stop other websites and apps from using their preferences to provide advertising.
