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.

    @1: Oh fuck off, have you even read the article? Facebook might log you out of this site, meaning that the post on this site is directly related to this fucking site. Is that not relevant enough for ya?
