Facebook SPOF - how to prevent?

RE: Facebook SPOF - how to prevent?
I guess it largely depends on what your page does. If you don't have any code attached to onLoad then loading the widgets asynchronously is probably the best way to do it because they will load quickly in the normal case and not block any of your actual page functionality (though the user will see the page "loading" until everything fails).

If you do have logic you care about attached to onload then things get trickier because these failures actually push that out and you have a SPOF again (just not for the page content). Would be great if there was a way to async load during the page load and make that content not block the onload but I'm not aware of any reliable ways to do it.

I hadn't thought about the pathological case of things being broken because of the great firewall but that could actually be a pretty big deal for a lot of the web.
