Kelly and Chris discussed Facebook Beacon in the last podcast episode, and Kelly linked to this article in a previous post, but I thought it might be useful to put it up front and center.

If you were against the Newsfeed from the beginning, you’re probably against Facebook Beacon. If this is the case, you can easily block outside sites from accessing your Facebook and sharing information to all your friends about which products you’re buying, which games you’re playing, which sites you’re visiting by doing the following:

1. Download and Install the BlockSite plugin for Firefox.
2. After restarting Firefox select ‘Add-ons’ from the Tools menu.
3. Click the ‘Options’ button on the BlockSite extension.
4. Click the ‘Add’ button.
5. Enter http://*facebook.com/beacon/* into the input box. Note the asterisks!
6. Click ‘OK’.
7. Click ‘OK’ again, and you are good to go. [via the Idea Shower]
