Has anyone noticed changes to load speeds or PageSpeed Insights scores recently?

 

We noticed a big drop from ~70 to ~35 points for mobile and the culprit is the following Facebook .js file:

We've been using Fb Pixel for tracking events for almost 2 years and our speed scores have always been good, or at least not impacted by Fb's code.

 

Any thoughts?

Justin, I am curious. Did you temporarily remove FB tracking pixel to
verify page load difference?

I did, yes.  It was a significant improvement.
