I don’t think so. I have great friends, but when I am with one group of friends I don’t really care to bump into another. And if I do get the urge to join a group, then a simple call or an email is good enough. Boy, what’s the problem with you guys? Too lonely? Get a life.

So if you log into a website via your cellphone you are being tracked. So just use common sense and you have nothing to worry about.

As the old saying goes: “Do not do anything you wouldn’t want your Mom to know about in public.” Same goes for online and then you have nothing to worry about. Now, really how many of us are really that important that someone wants to track our whereabouts? If you really that important than you most likely know how to keep your identity hidden if need be.
