Default Protecting privacy on Facebook

If you are irked enough by privacy changes at Facebook that you want to revert to the old ones, you may have discovered this is hard to do. Among other things, they seem to change or rearrange the settings very often.

Fortunately, Mashable has a page of specific instructions on how to control Facebook’s new and annoying “instant personalization” feature, either globally or on a case-by-case basis: “How to: Disable Facebook’s ‘Instant Personalization’ [PRIVACY].”

The article also explains why you may want to do this (or not).

Now if someone would explain how to stop Mashable from interjecting every page scroll with the same irrelevant video ad, that too could be useful. The video features cooking star Tyler Florence, and they must know I am interested in cooking, but showing the same ad every time I scroll from one part of the page to another is counter-productive at the very least.
