As soon as a user opens a page which allows the Facebook functionality, the user's web browser will make a connection to Facebook computers. At this point certain data available in the user’s web browser will be sent by the user's computer to Facebook. Facebook will then provide tailored content to the user.

If you do not agree to data being exchanged between your web browser and Facebook, you can disable Javascript in your web browser, for example, or install software on your computer which prevents communication with Facebook (for example proxy software or plug-ins for browsers which generally disable Facebook functionality outside of Facebook).
