facebook splitting up the word “sponsored” to sneak past adblockers
@zpojqwfejwfhiunz Twitter's new redesign seems to garble the CSS rules so you can't easily block ads
@zpojqwfejwfhiunz solution: ad block literally everything facebook
@zpojqwfejwfhiunz seriously, like, is there any legit reason for the html tree to look like *that*?!
@KitRedgrave add this filter list to your adblocker: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ryanbr/fanboy-adblock/master/fanboy-antifacebook.txt
An old trick, I did something similar for my online DHTML exercises for circumventing adds on them I split HT and ML ... and added this up as a string before displaying them ...
@zpojqwfejwfhiunz This is easily fixed. Block Facebook at DNS.
@zpojqwfejwfhiunz does hosts file level blocking still helps? (to block facebook ads, not facebook itself)
@zpojqwfejwfhiunz The modern internet was a mistake 🤦♀️
@zpojqwfejwfhiunz /r/programmerhumor :D
@zpojqwfejwfhiunz now one question: how is it read by a screen reader?
@zpojqwfejwfhiunz son of a bitch, thats sneaky
@zpojqwfejwfhiunz Not just ad blockers—also tools that dug into how their targeting worked: https://www.propublica.org/article/facebook-blocks-ad-transparency-tools
heh, I thought this was referring to the weird mixture of using <div> and <span> that didn't seem to modern to me :)
A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. Keep it fairly clean please. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
