Companies Participating in Facebook’s Beacon Program

4 Dec

From the Consumerist.com

One of our readers yesterday left a couple of interesting links in the comments section of our Beacon post. They provide the names of the companies that Facebook says are participating in its poorly conceived spy program Beacon. Here they are:

  • AllPosters.com
  • Blockbuster
  • Bluefly.com
  • CBS Interactive (CBSSports.com & Dotspotter)
  • ExpoTV
  • Gamefly
  • Hotwire
  • Joost
  • Kiva
  • Kongregate
  • LiveJournal
  • Live Nation
  • Mercantila
  • National Basketball Association
  • NYTimes.com
  • Overstock.com
  • (RED)
  • Redlight
  • SeamlessWeb
  • Sony Online Entertainment LLC
  • Sony Pictures
  • STA Travel
  • The Knot
  • TripAdvisor
  • Travel Ticker
  • TypePad
  • viagogo
  • Vox
  • Yelp
  • WeddingChannel.com
  • Zappos.com

One site points out that Redlight is a mysterious addition—”I couldn’t find any site that went by that name that wasn’t an adult site.” We found something called Redlight Poker—maybe that’s the participating company?
