really simple actually - install and configure tinyproxy on your VPS, set your browser to use that as a proxy. Configure the proxy to only accept requests from your ip address, ideally.

If you need it to only work for facebook, you may need to set up a pac file if you only need facebook proxied - i just used quickproxy to turn it off and on as needed since i was lazy
