Hi guys , I found this in a recent Hacker News thread. I thought I’d share for those of you who are interested in adding a resource that completely blocks Facebook.
Thanks for sharing.
Please note, this list also blocks Whatsapp - as it’s part of Facebook.
Here the repository with some more lists (2 years old) for different companies:
So, I recently installed Facebook Container in Firefox.
When I open the Pi-hole Admin Console…Facebook Container shows that it’s protected me from Facebook tracking.
This made me realize (assuming Pi-hole is using Facebook for some reason) blocking Facebook from the DNS level probably doesn’t block Facebook from tracking if you’re using a Pi-hole. I wonder what I would see if I cascaded 2 Pi-holes that have the same Facebook blocking list.
Follow-up: It mush have been a false positive fluke. I’ve opened the Pi-hole Admin Console a few more times today and I’m happy to report it’s not triggering Facebook Container.
Something has gone very wrong in your setup. There is no tracking code in Pi-hole what so ever.
