Guest sessions increasing - I'm the only one on the board - Facebook issue?


Active member
Anyone else having this issue? I'm the only one on my board and when I go into different threads and read posts and then go back to the main forum page I can see multiple guests.

When I click on "Members online now" I can see guests "viewing thread" where I just was. When I click on the "IP" link they are all different IP's by a few numbers.

I checked those IPs and they go back to Facebook. What's up?

My IP isn't even close and it shows me correctly.

I just read that link.... I'm surprised they get away with this. There have been a lot of complaints about Facebook and privacy and somehow this is getting overlooked.

if you guys dislike facebook, remove facebook connectivity and block their bots from coming to your servers.

facebook would be contacted on pretty much all page loads to generate the like button (and the number of likes).

and it would probably also try to access your servers on every share and like for it to generate a good looking share box with title and description and a preview image!
I don't mind FB loading the image. I don't want them tracking users movements if they haven't clicked the like button.

If that's all they are doing then they shouldn't show up as a guest.
