Thank you browser add-ons Special thanks to Adblock and Ghostery for keeping this mess off my workstations.
Re: Thank you browser add-ons And simply not trusting Facebook to access other content.
Re: Thank you browser add-ons Do you have the "Allow some non-intrusive advertising" unchecked? It's checked by default and I haven't noticed any ads getting through lately.

Re: Thank you browser add-ons is there a way to do something like this on my router?

| |said by Packeteers:I used to do that but some ad server IP's also host legitimate content. I started getting to many broken links and found that AdBlock was really the only solution for me. Add in Ghostery to prevent tracking and everything works pretty well.
unload adblock and see if this helps instead;
it blocks all the ad IPs using no resources
well before you even open your browser
and you don't even have to keep it loaded
unless you need to enable ads on the fly.
I support the right to keep and arm bears.

said by BF69 Fan :8GB? Mine has 16GB, but yeah 60MB isn't really a big issue, My browser does better than that, more like 1810MB at the moment....
in a world where the average new pc has 8 gigs of ram. 60 is an issue?
Noscript Yet another reason that proves Noscript is practical.
Apparenty this only affected people logged into Facebook So things are a bit over stated here, as often happens. Makes me glad I don't use Facebook, though.
Jay: What the @#$% is the internet???
Don't worry guys. It's just Facenet becoming self aware.

Resume I'd put that on my resume if I wrote that line.

Re: Resume Everyone would fear you. that would be awesome.
Scope of Impact not totally accurate... It wasn't just affecting sites that you logged in via facebook account to a 3rd party site... one site I use was redirecting and I never login via facebook account
Untangle + AdBlock Run AdBlock off of an Untangle VM acting as router. Pure win.

Re: Untangle + AdBlock "Facebook working as usual"....har-de-har-har
hate social media logins Just another reason to hate login in from an account like this. Definitely find how its becoming the norm for logging in
Re: hate social media logins that and the fact you are giving Facebook permission and the site your on to hand your info back and forth to help see what your interests etc are... Never use these logins!
what problem facebook.com is DNS sink-holed to a local webserver on my LAN ...so I never noticed this.
Forget about logging in and tracking, I just don't need to see that damn "like" button all over the place.
