This is interesting. Yesterday, Facebook Denied tracking you based on their cookie behavior (From our KC IT News post yesterday).

And today Nic comes back and analyzed the entire process of how Facebook is using Cookies again and shows in detail what Facebook has changed.

Which is to say, Facebook was cought with their hands in your cookie jar, said they didn’t do it, and changed how Facebook works so they couldn’t be accused of it down the road.  Which is okay.  An awful lot of these occurances are due to developers just not thinking through what they’re doing and why.  Especially an organization that is more marketing than technology driven.
