How to get rid of those accursed Facebook widgets on webpages RRS feed

  • Question

  • Facebook, to me is a pervasive application, the safety of which I am not convinced.

    It seems to me that more and more webpages are displaying that Facebook 'like' button which I avoid like the plague, but the same can't be said for others who use my computer, such as teenage grandchildren.

    Can anyone tell me if there is a way to block the script which causes the wretched thing to display in the first place?   I would prefer to have a blank space and feel safe, than what appears there now.

    I have looked at the source code for the widget and tried blocking the sites that are displayed in the early lines of code, to no avail.   I have tried disabling javascript, to no avail.   I must be missing something, please help me if you can.

    Cheers,

    Wal
