Can a website detect my facebook id even if i don't make a comment?

Hello!

I often see sites that show my facebook name under the comments section i.e.
post a comment (logged in as John Nash).

My question is even if I don't post a comment, does a website have any way to tell what Facebook ID is associated with my IP?

Thanks

    Thats not a behavior of a website but that in simple language that site has facebook comment box integrated into their code so if you you are logged in & surfing sites or blogs than you will see the above thing.

    if you are worried of being hacked than be free as the site it just like blind about your account info & about the name shown as logged in is shown by FB not the site itself.
  2. so just to clarify, the site does get to see my ip and which links i have visited, but not the facebook id associated with my ip?
  3. yes!
    Also you can clear your cookie & history that way it will not be able to see your visited site or don't know but private browsing will be helpful too.
  4. well i'm a little confused here. who can see my visited site if i dont clear cookies and history? facebook or other sites?

    Its depends upon the code used to make a page.Tell me why are you so much concerned about it?
  6. Any site with a FB like, FB know you visited it same with any integrated comment box. all sites log ip addresses that visited, i'm not sure if they can read the cookie to get the name from FB.

    look at a browser plugin called ghostery, It's blocking 9 things on this site.
  7. yes, that's true
