Partial Facebook FixWednesday, 09 Feb 2011 20:18:24 · 1 minute read · Comments
A while ago I 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.
