Webgraph /// Facebook Blocker Extension for Safari and Chrome

How did we get here?

We’re beginning to feel overwhelmed by the frequency with which Facebook links are starting to appear on many of the sites we visit in our daily routines, so we decided to do something about it.

What does it do?

This browser extension stops Facebook social plugins—including those within iFrames—from running on sites other than Facebook itself. This includes ‘Like’ buttons, ‘Recommended’ lists, and should also stop any Facebook scripts from tracking your browsing history.

What about Facebook Connect?

Don’t worry: sites that use Facebook Connect for sign in purposes, or that use Facebook as a conduit for other functionality will continue to work as expected.

Who are you guys?

We’re Webgraph, a small creative studio founded over 10 years ago in sunny South Florida by brothers Alex & Dan Rubin. We design and build web sites and applications for clever clients around the world.
