I just put this together and figured someone else may find it useful. If you don't know why this is here, don't worry about it. People who have a use for this info already know they do.

I may run a diff against the listing at https://github.com/jmdugan/blocklist...s/facebook/all in case yours has any which aren't already included. If so, please contribute.

That's the list I started with. I stripped the subdomains and resulting duplicates as I was looking to block all data destined for the company, not just ads/trackers.

Not all of those are facebook domains. For example, akamaihd.net is not facebook, it's akamai.

Good catch. Edgesuite is Akamai also. Others should pay attention and do their due diligence if they're using this list. It was a q&d compilation created from a more specific list and I make no promises/guarantees.

Personally, I don't care. I didn't realize that was there, and having it blocked hasn't negatively impacted my internet experience at all, so I'll leave it unless/until it does. Same with edgesuite.

It's kind of a shame that the web developed in a way which made it acceptable for files to load from anywhere other than the site you're actually on. There are plenty of good reasons for it to work that way, but good reasons don't negate the negative effects.
