Re: OK, let's catch that lie: Facebook is NOT free.

Even when you block ads, you're gifting your copyrighted material to Facebook. Content which attracts people who do click ads.

Worse, even when you're not even IN Facebook you're being tracked by all those nice "Facebook" buttons on other webpages (ditto for any of those other data grabbers such as Goggle and Twatter) which is why filtering webpages is now pretty much mandatory - they quite happily do this without your permission as the worst they can expect is a minuscule fine.
