Time to push 'space colonization' off the list and into oblivion as well?

I have noticed that links posted now include a bit that goes "?fbclid=" followed by a long string. That string is a facebook tracker.

for example:

https://www.connexionfrance.com/French-news/French-young-people-call-for-buying-boycott-in-climate-change-protest-Boycott-Citoyen?fbclid=IwAR1FmFU8BfGyqTbDMhks920qGTrxMU9VxaGjINKlPO-yX-6l43wXWSgT5dc

the link allows facebook (and probably the rest of NSAgoofacetwit) knows exactly where the poster saw that link. So now they know also that anyone who clicks that link saw that particular post. Und so weiter.

Please strip goofacetwit trackers off the end of your links. Just that link without everything after and including the "?fbclid=" works fine. For now.

So a perfectly good link is

https://www.connexionfrance.com/French-news/French-young-people-call-for-buying-boycott-in-climate-change-protest-Boycott-Citoyen

without the facebook tracker.

But of course i notice that the link target also has a facebook tracker. So if you clicked on the link with the "?fbclid=" bit included,  then facebook knows which link you saw, and who posted it. Your browser probably sends the referrer tag, so they know you saw it on nevens arctic forum.

if you stripped out  the tracker and cut and pasted the rest into an anonymous browser window, then they get your IP and browser fingerprint. (They got those in both previous cases also)

(I notice that reuters and a couple other sites now make unstrippable tags like that, so one needs cleverer defense.)

I am probably boring people, so i will stop.

Just found this basic information about Arctic Sea Ice changes since 1980s on YouTube

Excellent video Stephan!

Makes me wonder if, apart from the "like" button, we could have a "keep" button, in which we can mark [bookmark] the posts that we really like and we want to have a way to keep them mark for future reference.

Could that be possible?

Which is the best answer to Sep-2012 ASI lost (compared to 1979-2000)?
50% [NSIDC Extent] or
73% [PIOMAS Volume]

Volume is harder to measure than extent, but 3-dimensional space is real, 2D's hide ~50% thickness gone.
-> IPCC/NSIDC trends [based on extent] underestimate the real speed of ASI lost.

Juan, go to your profile -> profile info -> show posts -> likes given.

That'll give you an overview of everything you have 'liked', and should make it easy to find stuff, unless you 'like' a whole lot.  ;)

For those of us that tend to give likes: Just bookmark the post, or add the YT video to a YT playlist.

Thanks for the answers, Neven & Oren.
Both ways work. I am looking to a procedure like the one Neven comments. But, yes, I have give a lot of "likes". When I like a comment, I mark it, but that doesn't mean that I want to have a bookmark. Maybe I should reduce my "likes", but it is also a way to express thanks to others people work. I will think about it.

This is a long-standing problem with social media IMHO.

You want to be able to show sympathy, bookmark posts, or monetize content creator even. But there is only 'like'. There should be 'like', 'bookmark', and 'flattr'.

For the bookmarking, there are workarounds with read later services like Instapaper or Pocket. I'm using Pocket and it suits me well.

I just keep word files with text/links to the post/YT address and a short description.

The problem with a specialist forum is that even searches that would be specific in a general context can generate many hits on the forum.
