Stop facebook intercepting your links

Are you are fed up with posting links to face book (guardian, yahoo, etc) and find that when your friends follow the link they are forced to accept intrusive facebook apps in order to read the link?


then you may want to prefix your link with this before pasting into facebook:

http://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&url=

to effectively paste a link like this:

http://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&url=http://uk.news.yahoo.com/rare-type-storm-sparks-tornado-210613161.html

When your facebook users click on the link, instead of being forced to accept the oppresive Yahoo facebook app, they will see this:


Which will allow them to follow on to the link in a civilised fashion.

NOTE: When adding your link on to the end of http://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&url= make sure you include the http:// part of the link you are copying.
