all facebook, whether it be via an app or a browser. I dont want anyone using my network (router) to access it.

What's the model number of netgear ?

you could try open dns and block social networking goo.gl/m5cK3

thanks hun, it's basically as the APPS connect to apple first, and not to facebook, so these methods of blocking do not work.

it's ok, i'll just sell their phones/ipods

thanks lol, but not without reason.

someone asks for help and "some people" post pointless, unhelpfull comments.. so probabaly should have stopped themselves typing away on the keyboard, but my guess is they have nothing else better to do

OP M/F? I've never paid much notice.



I keep telling you dga, save the sex talk for the chat room, now is not the time or place (_;) X)

yes, sometimes i forget that when someone genuinely comes and asks for help, that he will get the odd random posting pointless comments as it's a public misc forum, each to themselves i suppose, but thanks to all those who had helping in mind

the odd randoms only being obnoxious are keeping me entertained anyways

No such thing as free help, you have to expect a little ridicule as your payment!

You got your answer, you need to block it on the device or block all … You got your answer, you need to block it on the device or block all connections to apples servers (which facebook is routed through), but that will basically stop most apps and the store etc.



i have yes, thank you, but someone in here pointed out that as it's a misc forum, they will chat about whatever they like anyways lol...

All real what though i think is the question?

Parent controls = If i catch you on facebook then im taking the device off you for good.

On a side note i didnt realise that the facebook app connected via apple, guess you learn something new everyday.
