I don't know, I'm one of the six people on earth who doesn't have or 
want a Facebook account. But Ghostery blocks any unwanted junk that 
comes in via a web page, and since you're viewing Facebook inside a web 
page then it's worth a try. Can't hurt.

Even if it doesn't work completely there, you'll be amazed at the 
tracking that goes on everywhere else. Some sites have 15-20 trackers.
