I guess EasyPrivacy one of the in built filter in ad-block plus already does that. Correct me if i am wrong.



I thought that, but with EasyPrivacy, I still have the facebook comments on TC, but not with that rule.

Maybe I did something wrong...

EasyPrivacy rules can be seen here: https://easylist-downloads.adblockplus.org/easyprivacy.txt

Search that for 'face' and you'll find only 4 rules that would apply, and those are about removing pixel trackers whilst leaving content intact.

The rules above remove content, which is just as well as anything a pixel tracker can do content could do. Which is where the current paranoia level seems to be.

There's also the Antisocial filter, which removes social widgets.

It has many filters for Facebook, and I can clearly see, for example, the one for Facebook Connect.
