Not a big user of Facebook, but since I know many listeners are, thought I’d share this Firefox add-on I found. It lets you customize the look of Facebook, including blocking alerts or other sections that you don’t use or find distracting. I haven’t tried it so that’s my best understanding. Their site explains more. If you want it, I’m sure you don’t have to download it from their site but could get it through Firefox’s add-on browser.
I am a huge fan and long time user of another browser add on called Social Fixer. I would be lost without this extension. Allows me to hide many elements and features on Facebook than FB Purity does also.
The authors of these great programs are up against frequent code changes by the Facebook programmers. It is an ongoing battle.
At any rate, check out Social Fixer… Matt Kruse is the only person who created and frequently updates this great program.
