      Anyone else getting this?
      A quick Google says it is related to Facebook. They have changed their API or something?

      That's what I have discovered. I am hardly ever on FB I can't remember the last time I logged in, I only joined it to enter some competitions, waste of time as usual. This what I had coming up on my screen,-

      It certainly looks like the where the ads are, but we only use Google and the Agency ones, so cannot be compromised to the best of my knowledge. It maybe the adblocker picking up the facebook thingy.

      We do have Facebook sort of enabled but not fully.

      Let me know if you get it again?
