So, Facebook tracking, I come to your rescue again, here is how to disable it on all four major browsers—not that we class internet explorer as a major browser these days, but we couldn’t leave them out, they might get a bit upset.
Click the Chrome menu Chrome menu on the browser toolbar.
Click Show advanced settings.
In the “Privacy” section, click Content settings.
In the dialogue that appears, scroll down to the “Location” section.
Select your default permission for future location requests:
Allow all sites to track your physical location: Select this option to let all sites automatically access your location.
Ask when a site tries to track your physical location: Select this option if you want Google Chrome to alert you whenever a site requests your location.
Do not allow any site to track your physical location: Select this option to automatically deny site requests for your location.
Tap the last option!
In the URL bar, type about:config
Double click on the geo.enabled preference
Location-Aware Browsing is now disabled
And for those of you who are using IE (why would you be using that?) Here is a link to terminate location services, somewhat long winded, but it’s outlined on their page, but it will prevent Facebook tracking. http://windows.microsoft.com/en-gb/windows7/change-internet-explorer-9-privacy-settings
With Safari running, choose Preferences from the Safari menu.
Click the Security tab.

And there we are, let’s stop the tracking, and stop Big Brother from watching you!
