being tracked by someone's friend

I'm new to all this so I'm not sure if I'm asking this in the best way but here goes...
Can someone with a tracker pick you up on a mutual friend's page even if you haven't been to their page and if you aren't signed in to myspace (so you wouldn't show as being
"online now" ) ? Thanks to any and all who answer ! lol

I believe most trackers only track IP addys, unless you're signed up for the same tracking provider, then it would show an exact myspace page.

I dont quite understand your whole question though...if you havent been to their page, and you arent signed on, are you asking if it tracks you visiting the mutual friends page? If so, nope...dont think thats possible.

Hope that helps some! Either way...use ad block and keep updated on the adblock list of trackers found in this forum and you should be fine! Cool

Sure. If I understand you correctly, there are a few trackers that will do that. Spyspace.standoffish.com does a great job of that, but of course, it won't show the actual profile name. Although, it will produce an IP adress. It will even trace the tracks the person viewing your profile took to view you. ie friends list, search. If you a donating member, you may get a few more tricks.

hope that helps

Really? They can trace your tracks? I had no idea.

If you don't go to the actual profile with the tracker on it, they can't track you.

Re: being tracked by someone's friend

Thanks for the replies. I have the spyspace one that was mentioned on my adblock list so I assume/hope that one would be blocked. What seemed a little odd was that when I'd visit a friend's page even if I wasn't signed in, within about 30 seconds to a minute another friend, the same one every time, would suddenly be "online now". And it made me wonder if he had some kind of tracer for my ip address. Sorry if I've confused you all even more now !

Ok, so I assumed right... he/she most likely knows your IP, and has a tracker not on your list. Do you use the same computer everytime? You can get a proxy and all kinds of stuff, but at a "price". I know your curious as to how they're doing this, but i'm stumped.

Re: being tracked

so i have no clue about anything about blocking trackers or trackers in general and i feel stupid for asking but my question is can trackers only track me if im signed up to one? i don't have a tracker, and im not really interested in getting one b.c. i heard that trackers only log people that have trackers. since i don't have one do those who have trackers able to see who i am?

Yep! There are some trackers that are not limited to their own database of subscribers. So we can see you.....if you're on one of our pages of course!

Re: being tracked

Yes, the blocker is always a good idea if you don't want people to know your looking. Better to be safe than sorry.
