Partial Facebook Fix

Earlier blogged about Facebook having some problems. Well it appears they may have done something rather odd.

After seeing a Facebook post by Jonathan Roscoe, I have decided that Facebook must be tagging posts as adverts…By uninstalling my default AdBlock plug-in in Chrome and instead using AdBlock Plus which allows for more customisation, I was able to put Facebook on my whitelist.

Below is a video (sans sound) which walks through the steps of installing AdBlock Plus and customising it using Google Chrome 9 on OS X, but this should work on Windows and Linux too. Other browsers should have similar plug-ins or customisations available.

UPDATE: This doesn’t seem to cure all problems, though it does solve some.
