Facebook and Tor

A number of users have noticed that Facebook is blocking connections from the Tor network. Facebook is not blocking Tor deliberately. However, a high volume of malicious activity across Tor exit nodes triggered Facebook's site integrity systems which are designed to protect people who use the service. Tor and Facebook are working together to find a resolution.

For further questions please contact us at execdir@torproject.org.

Update from Facebook on June 18, 2013, 2:30 PM EST: Facebook's site integrity systems detected automated malicious activity coming from a significant number of Tor exit nodes. In order to protect people while we investigated the problem, access via these nodes was temporarily suspended. This issue has now been resolved and Tor access routes to Facebook restored.

Absolutely correct, I have been using every service of Google with my single Google account. But base on the recent news I got totally offended and completely stopped its usage. Search Engine I now use is DuckDuckGo & StartPage, Email service provided is something I'm still trying to figure out, but the sad part is there is nothing to replace the contents in you tube. Is there any way we will be able to utilize you-tube via tor maintaining anonymity? .

facebook is trying to gather as much data from the user as they can... for example when i use TOR, they asked me several times, as security questions(lol?) for very private stuff that i never told them before... facebook is surely next to google the biggest source for prism.

> Google isn't as important
As important as Facebook you mean? FB isn't important at all. On the contrary - anybody concerned about his privacy should stay away from centralized services like that.

They could just create some onion addresses, so we can use these services without even use exit nodes, using these services directly though tor network.

Imagine something like "FacebookFreakingId.onion" that corresponds exactly to a Facebook server dedicated to receive Tor network users's traffic. Same as Google and other relevant services.

ha ha.. if you notice something.. TOR has let itself compromised by Facebook !

---------
How??
---------
If you use a fake FB account, open it on TOR browser and try send a message to your original account (with no friend link between the two profiles), then the dialog message will open and you will be able to send the message directly into your Inbox of the org acc.

In the contrary, if you send the msg to some other's original account, then msg dialog will open stating that it will go to Others msg box of the profile.

So Facebook knows your Anonymous/ Fake profile.. and hence TOR fails !!

So next time you try to take a word revenge on FB.. remember that someone out there knows who you are ..

some days ago I could not register with facebook using tor browser. but for me, more important question is why I can't find exit node nickname in torstatus.blutmagie.de so I can't block spying exit node.
96.44.189.98, axigy2.torservers.net
los angeles, Organization: "OC3 Networks & Web Solutions, LLC"
I tried with axigy2 to block it but no success. it is there again and again. If I am in USA I would visit them.
