In the midst of news that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg will testify before Congress to answer questions about his company's data collection and sharing practices, Mozilla has begun pushing a Firefox add-on to make it harder for the social network to track users once they leave its site.
"Facebook Container isolates your Facebook identity from the rest of your web activity," Nick Nguyen, Mozilla's product strategist, wrote in a Tuesday post to a company blog. "When you install it, you will continue to be able to use Facebook normally. Facebook can continue to deliver their service to you and send you advertising. The difference is that it will be much harder for Facebook to use your activity collected off Facebook to send you ads and other targeted messages [emphasis added]."
