It doesn't block facebook properly

I use SelfControl very often and I'm very satisfied with it in general. But for some reason it doesn't block facebook completely. Everything in facebook works just fine except the photoes and videos in the feed, and to be honest FB is the page that steals most of my time..

What can I do about this. Is there some sneaky way to make it also block facebook, or can I download another app, that (in cooperation with Selfcontrol)can make Facebook inoperable..


I've had the same problem. Two things that help are:

  1. Only use the Blacklist option.

  2. If you still see Facebook partially loading, reload the web page. In my experience, I only need to reload once, afterwards Facebook is blocked completely.

Reload the web page or try cleaning your browser's cache. Always take a look at the FAQ if you have any issues:
