Go Incognito on Facebook: AdBlock Plus Can Bypass ‘Seen’ Message Notifications

“[W]hat if you don’t want them to know you’ve read their message? Why? Well, to use the example above, let’s just say that Bruce is my boss. And it’s Saturday. Maybe in response to my innocent question he thinks of something I should do, and instead of responding with helpful film hints he asks me to work.

Bummer, right? Well, if I have this feature enabled Bruce never knows if I’ve read his message or not.”
