Facebook redirects affect multiple sites

Log out of Facebook to read the rest of this artic- oh, you’ve gone.

If you’re reading this you’ve probably already figured out the solution or the error has been resolved, but a problem with Facebook plug-ins is affecting a number of sites today, including VG247.

The issue presents as a Facebook permissions redirect which kicks in before a webpage can fully load. As practically everyone uses social media plug-ins these days, the problem is widespread.

Disabling the plug-ins is no easy task, so we have to wait on a fix from Facebook’s end.

Happily, not every browser and operating system is affected, and if you log out of Facebook entirely, you should be sweet.

UPDATE: It looks like Facebook has corrected whatever Cthulhuesque voodoo was breaking practically the entire web today. You should experience no issues browsing the site while logged in now.
