A few days ago, I posted a reference to a plugin that lets you reduce the clutter as well as hiding stuff you don’t want to see in facebook. I found out later that my posting had somehow disappeared. Ignoring for the moment how that might have happened (the answer seems rather disconcerting since I know I didn’t remove it), I figured I’d repost the information someplace other than on my FB profile.
Go to http://www.fbpurity.com/install.htm where you will find the plugin for various different browsers. I have only been playing with it for a few days but it does seem to do a very good job of letting you manage what you want to see and more importantly what you don’t want to see.
Update: There’s another plugin called social fixer (http://socialfixer.com/) that is also worth considering.
