    So since I installed iOS7, I have noticed that whenever I click the Facebook shortcut in Safari, it opens the Facebook App. If I actually type in "Facebook.com" it will take me to the site in Safari. If I click on any names of my friends, it will again open up the Facebook app.

    I have two different Facebook accounts I use, one through Safari and the other through the Facebook app. It makes it so I don't have to log out and in every time.

    I can't find any option to have Safari stop opening the Facebook app. Anyone figure this out?

    This is annoying the crap out of me. Sometimes facebook app is just useless for certain things, so I go to the desktop site.
    That annoying "Open in Facebook" popup, which then does nothing when you click Cancel... :mad:
    Also trying to log out of the facebook desktop site, just keeps sending me into the facebook app.

    I really don't know how to get around it, I'm not sure if we can switch off URL takeovers.

    I have not had this issue, but I never use the mobile site. I always switch to desktop mode because mobile is almost identical to the app, just not as smooth.

    Maybe that will solve your problem?

    I've tried that, but then occasionally some links still open the app. Especially the log out on the desktop site, opens the app which is a bit hopeless..
    It doesn't even open the correct page on the facebook app when going to a profile, eg.

    Have you tried using a different browser for these kind of purposes (like Chrome or something else)? Just curious if that might get around this.

    Ha, the thought crossed my mind but I was more bothered about it just taking over safari's links. I'll give Chrome a go shortly.
