Adblock Plus now blocks Facebook’s extended tracking efforts

Adblock Plus says Facebook offers users a way to opt out of tracking, but deems it ‘predictably contentious’, circuitous and temporary by design. For those looking to block Facebook from peering into their Web browsing habits, it offers a simple and permanent alternative, Adblock Plus says.“Facebook’s blatant move against fair-minded Internet users simply cannot be tolerated so we’re trying to make sure users of Adblock Plus who also might be a Facebook user understand how to block the tracking efforts of this behemoth,” said Till Faida, co-founder of Adblock Plus.
