Share widgets are embedded in countless web pages, and as such, these widgets serve as excellent tracking devices for Facebook to build a profile of your browsing history. Take control over your data and block Facebook.
I also recommend visiting eff.org/facebook this is a search filter for articles published with Facebook in the title on the Internet Frontier Foundation website.
PrivacyBadger won’t require any further configurations, read more on the official website

If your school security club uses Facebook’s WorkPlace platform, the above configuration will prevent the site from loading. its surprising how many trackers are loaded when you visit the platform and am not sure what are they used for.
Add the following rules to allow Facebook’s WorkPlace to load
my.workplace.com fbcdn.net * allow my.workplace.com static.xx.fbcdn.net * noop
I would also recommend visiting your usual sites and click on ublock origin and see how many of them contain Facebook trackers just for fun.
