Important News for Chrome users of FBP:
Facebook’s legal team have made Google remove the Chrome extension from the Chrome Webstore due to claimed Trademark Infringement. I am in the process of getting this resolved. Until that is sorted, the install/update process for the Chrome extension has changed. You now need to save the extension to your computer, then drag it on to the Chrome Extensions page. (Full instructions for doing this are shown on the Install Page in red text below the green “Install F.B. Purity” button)
Install / Update the latest version of FB Purity by clicking the green “Install FB Purity” button on the FB Purity Install Page.
If you have any problems or questions with/about FBP, please use the available help resources on this website, including the FBP User Guide, and FBP FAQ page which includes a comprehensive Troubleshooting Guide that you should follow if you have any problems.

**News Update Regarding Facebook notifications for “X new posts” on the FBP Fan Page**
Facebook have changed some code regarding the notifications for the FB Purity Fan Page and it seems to be rather buggy, it is posting notifications that there are new posts when there aren’t any. The solution is to hover over the “Like” button on the FB Purity Fan Page and unsubscribe from notifications. You no longer need Facebook’s notifications because the FB Purity extension now has its own notification system for new posts on the FBP Fan Page built in (make sure you have the “Show FBP News Notifications” box ticked under the “Text Filter” box on the FBP options screen to receive FBP News notifications)
**News Update Regarding The Left Column Links Section**
Some people are experiencing a new design for Facebook’s “Left column links” section, as they are part of a small group that Facebook is testing new code out on. Some of FBP’s left column related options may stop working if you have that new design. A lot of people are wondering how they can access their Friend and Interest Lists they have created. You can still access your Friends Lists here and your Interest Lists here.
FBP TIP: If you are being blitzed by posts about “Pokemon Go” in your newsfeed and want them gone. Putting the words pokemon and pokémon into FBP‘s Text Filter box should filter out most pokemon posts. Or if you want greater coverage, heres a longer list of keywords/phrases you can put into the Text Filter box, that should filter out even more Pokemon related posts:
