We have recently re-implemented HitBox, a site-wide data-gathering service that will help us dig deeper into how users and visitors use LiveJournal. The data we collect will help us prioritize our improvements to the site, among other things. A few folks were very concerned about privacy with the Hitbox service, and thanks to their feedback we were able to make some changes to how we’ll use the service. Most sites on the web do keep track of which pages you visit, and we’re trying to be even more respectful of your privacy. You won’t actually see a change to your experience using LJ.
from today’s LJ news post.
Just remember folks. DHS, just like Tom, is always your friend!
