How to Stop Companies from Collecting and Selling Your Facebook InfoNovember 15, 2012 By Brandon Ballenger,

     PrivacyFix is a browser plug-in for Firefox and Chrome that analyzes your privacy settings across social networking sites. It tells you what percentage of sites you’ve visited that Facebook tracks and estimates what you're to Facebook.
     PrivacyFix provides tools you can us to “fix” this privacy leak, such as excluding your Facebook profile from search engines, blocking your friends from inadvertently sharing your personal information, making your postings private (visible only to friends) by default, and so on.
     Likewise for your Google settings. You'd be surprise about how much of your browsing activity Google tracks. It also lists other websites that share your visits and your info with third parties.
     Enabling Privacyfix's Healthbar adds a browser icon which accesses a dashboard which you can use to check a website’s privacy flaws, delete cookies, and provide a history of privacy issues.
