How to disallow facebook to commercialize your likes – How Facebook makes money with your likes – Part 1.

Inspired by this post by Nathan Kontny, I want to share with you a privacy setting that most people on facebook probably won’t know exists.

Disclamer before we start: So you need some webspace to display that content of the tab. After all it’s only an iframe, so Facebook won’t take care of hosting your information.

You need a webspace that is able to serve the content with a secure HTTPS-Connection.

After October 2011, Facebook requires you to serve your content through a secure connection. If you can’t deliver that, fear not, you have other options: Use one of the many Apps out there to help you out. The disadvantage? The are always branded by another company and will therefore not look as professional. Also complex php-mysql-magic like submitting a form to your database won’t be part of the deal.
