    Today my mum asked me to take a look at something and this is what I saw:

    And if you scroll down more you will see this:

    facebook2.png

    And if you keep going you will see this:

    Have anyone seen this before? This is the first time I seen it. Clicking on the "x" does remove the overlay but not completely.

    I am actually pleased to see that. Although I do like to have people visit my facebook page to see my photographs (https://www.facebook.com/jim.mcclain.95971 ;)), I hate that facebook has reduced the traffic on my forum in recent years. This is a great way to get some of it back.

    There are private sections on my forum, but plenty enough open, accessible content to make registering a desire, not a necessity.

    it should come as no surprise that Facebook likes complete control.

    Around christmas I got login prompts on public fb pages. Since a few weeks I'm getting the overlay but without a close button...
