      first of all thanks for the above comment…..
      now the correct ans is Cookie not web-bug.

      A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server.
      Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer.
      It keeps track of information related to user’s login details on a website, also check whether the user has visit first time or already visited that particular
      If you go to a website that allows you to customize a page so that it looks
      the same everytime you visit it, the designer will store these pieces of design
      information in a Cookie. If you become a member or some site that wants to
      make you navigation easy, they will store your membership info in a Cookie so
      that you are instantly recognized when you visit the site.

      syntax of file name is look like : username@facebook[1].txt

      with regards
