Facebook to Deploy Ad Blocker Blocker Blocker Blocker

Josh Constine, writing for TechCrunch:

A source close to Facebook tells me that today, possibly within hours, the company will push an update to its site’s code that will nullify Adblock Plus’ workaround. Apparently it took two days for Adblock to come up with the workaround, and only a fraction of that time for Facebook to disable it.

Still, the cat-and-mouse game is sure to rage on.

Whack-a-mole all the way down.
