Any way to disable facebook integration?

As of this AM, I noticed the extra button to "Like" a thread.

Two thing immediately came to mind... First, I frequently load 1addicts on my phone, and real estate of a smaller screen is highly valued to me.

Secondly is that I never will use this function.

I checked my options to see if there was a user option to disable Facebook integration, and did not see it.

If no option to remove that integration can exist, might I suggest that you move the link to the bottom of the page so that it doesn't use up valuable space in the main area of a thread?

Thanks in advance for your consideration.

www.facebook.com -> account -> Privacy Settings -> Applications and Websites (on the lower left, click on "edit your settings") -> Instant Personalization ("edit settings") -> Uncheck the box titled "Enable instant personalization on parter websites".

If I'm right, that should do it. The forum admins might be able to give you a better answer.

OK, it looks like this is actually something that can't be disabled via facebook privacy settings, and is more to do with vbulletin. I've successfully disabled it for e90post.com using adblock+ in chrome, like so:

DIV[style="background: #2bd1fb; padding:6px; padding-right:15px; color:#eee; text-align:center; font-size:12px; letter-spacing:0px;font-weight:700;"]

See below.

AdBlock is a very useful piece of kit.

I moved the position over to make it inline with the post tools, so it doesnt take any more space and is alot more discreet now. Hope its better now? I think its alot more discreet

Hey Mark,
Quick question... I was in a for sale thread today (Molded CSL trunk) and I could not view the pictures in the thread. The only site that is blocked is facebook and I was just wondering if this could be a problem for others.

Thanks!

No idea what to tell you because everyones computer is unique, if you are running the adblock stuff, try disabling it and see if it comes back

How do I get that off? I never asked for it and just noticed it.

I signed up, FB, at the request of an old friend and have not nor will go back.

A PM or whatever is best would be great.

Thank you.
