Finally, A Filter
With political madness, religious zealous, and an annoying launch all flooding the Facebook news feed…
It’s a good thing that it’s super easy to filter out words and text-based references you just don’t want to see!
Simply grab the trustworthy little browser add-on/extension, FB Purity, and make those annoying posts “vanish”!
While many browser add-ons can be dubious, I’ve relied on FBPurity for most than 3 years to help me maintain some sanity on Facebook.
Check out the FB Purity tutorial here. It’s available for Firefox, Chrome, Safari and Opera.
Then, open up the settings, and start adding a list of any and all keywords that you’d love to never see in your news feed again!
Plus, if you ever want to take a peek at what was filtered out and ensure you’re not missing anything, you can always click on “Show” to display the suppressed posts.
The filter works on all text so whether it is a person’s name, the name of a page that the item is shared from, or a word within the post, the filter will grab it. Unfortunately, the filter can’t identify image content – but you’ll see so much less of the stuff that you’re not likely to find the few that slip through as annoying.
Change your mind about a term? Just visit the settings page, remove the word from the list, click save and you’re back to normal for that term.
So, whether it’s a political debate that’s driving you batty, some news scandal that needs to just go away, or the “next big thing” mlm/affiliate product launch… control of your news feed is in YOUR hands.
You never know, it might just save you some friendships too!
