FB Purity v9.0: Deleted Friend Alerts, Friend Whitelist, Chronological Newsfeed Sorting

v9.0.0  of the F.B. (Fluff Busting) Purity browser extension for cleaning up and customizing Facebook has been released:

FB Purity alerts you when your friends delete you and Lets you sort the newsfeed chronologically amongst many other options

FB Purity v9.0.0 has been released

New features in this version:

  • Deleted Friend Alerts – When any of your friends remove you from their friends lists (unfriend you), FBP will display an alert message on the screen. If you dont want to see these alerts, you can turn them off via the FBP options screen.

  • Friend Whitelist – You can now specify the friends whose posts you dont want FBP to filter out from the newsfeed.

  • Chronological Newsfeed Sorting – If you see the newsfeed is not sorted chronologically, just press the “R” key on your keyboard, and FBP will resort the feed into correct chronological order.
  • Hide “Commented on This” option – Lets you hide posts that begin with “Friend X commented on this”
  • Hide the “Browse” link in the left column option.
  • Hide Emoticons option, now also hides Facebook “Stickers” in FB chat / messages.

Fixed in this version:

  • Fixed the “hide trending topics box” filter, a new form of the trending box was showing up, this update should hide it, if you have the “Hide Trending Topics” option ticked.
  • Fixed application/game filtering & whitelisting for some users. People with the new newsfeed design may have noticed that the game and app filtering had stopped working, this update should fix that.
  • Fixed application/game message hiding in the news ticker feed.
  • Fixed “Fan” aka “Like Page” story filtering for some users who have the new newsfeed design.

Of course all the features of FB Purity that you know and love are still there: Ad Blocking, Key Word / Phrase filtering in the newsfeed, Filter out specific newsfeed story types, hide all Game and App Posts and hundreds of other filters etc.

Please tell all your friends about F.B. Purity, let them know how much better Facebook is with FB Purity :) Facebook are blocking direct links to the FBPurity website, which makes it harder to share, you just need to be creative, for instance you can tell them to google “FB Purity”, or share links to the FB Purity Fan page on Facebook or share promotional images from that page, or link to the FBP page on Google+ or the FBP Page on Twitter which you should also “add” if you have accounts with them,  as Facebook have a habit of deleting the Fan Pages of browser extensions that they dont like, you should also subscribe to the FBP News Mailing List, to be able to keep up to date with the FBP news, even if Facebook delete the FBP Fan page. You can also share the link to FB Purity via other networks, such as via Email, linked-in, Pinterest, Instagram, snapchat etc

If you are relatively technically minded at all you can also join the FB Purity Beta Testing page at http://fb.com/puritytest where you will be able to access the latest versions of FB Purity before they are released to the general public, and you can help make sure any bugs or issues with new releases got caught early on in the development cycle.

If you like and appreciate the work I put into F.B. Purity, you can help me out in return by donating to support the project http://donate.fbpurity.com

Thank you to those who have already supported! Any donations really help, big or small.

I hope you enjoy using FB Purity, like the new features, and find it useful.

Cheers,

Steve

P.S if you are using Safari 7, you might have issues with FBP not loading sometimes, a page refresh should fix it, in theory. If that doesnt work or is too annoying, you should try out FBP in Chrome, Firefox or Opera. I cant test it in Safari 7 as i dont have a Mac, so i cant fix the Safari 7 issues. Another option is to install the NinjaKit extension in Safari, then install the Greasemonkey version of FBP, which you can access via the Firefox link on the FBP install page on the FBP website.

    if you missed the alert on who unfriended you, is there a place to go look after the alert was missed?

    ty

    • admin says:

      yes, if you press the “F” key, shortly after the alert has gone, the alert should pop up again.

      • Joe says:

        have any way to see the history of removed friends? Like a list? Sometimes i see the popup too late and miss it, and only now i know about “f” key shotcut.

        • admin says:

          not at present, but i will probably be adding something like that in future.

        • admin says:

          adding a method to do this, is on my to-do list. There is however a work-around way to view a history of deleted friends. Though it only starts after you do this. Install another browser that fbp can run on, on your computer, different to the one you normally use, or you could use a portable version of the browser you do already use, and just save it in a different location. Then install FBP on that browser. Now open Facebook. FBP will make a snapshot of your friends list. Now if you never open that browser again for a month, a year, or however long, if you want to see your deleted friends history over that period, just open the browser again after that time period and go to facebook, and it will show all the friends that are no longer in your list since the last time you opened that browser.

      • B says:

        The “F” key doesn’t seem to work. In the future, can there be an accessible archive of those who “unfriend?”

    Err, how do I keep this from DELETING friends?

    • admin says:

      fb purity, doesnt delete friends. its not actually possible for it to do that.

      • Michael says:

        Well for some reason it does beceause if i contect them they say they did not unfriend/removed me.

        • admin says:

          If you read the alerts, they explain the various possible reasons that the names shown are appearing. The reasons include temporary account de-activation. I repeat, FBP does not and cannot delete your friends.

  3. Q says:

    I have this feature turned off/hidden. But it still notifies me anytime someone is removed from my list. I don’t actually want to see these alerts, but hiding them isn’t working. Is it a bug? Can you look into making sure the hide deleted friend alerts really does hide them? Thanks.

    • admin says:

      Just to be clear, the option for deleted friend alerts is a “set” option rather than a “hide” option, you need to un-tick the option to stop the alerts showing. Do you have the option un-ticked?

  4. Juanita says:

    how far back can you see on the unfriend?

    • admin says:

      FBP only starts monitoring your friendlist for changes after its installed, it cant tell you about people who unfriended you in the past (before it was installed)

  5. Ken says:

    Has the option to go back and view who has removed themselves from your friend list been updated so that you can view a history? I saw that a year ago this was on the list to add this option/feature but I don’t see any updates. Thanks in advance!!

    • admin says:

      you dont see any updates, because there hasn’t been any. There is however a work-around way to view a history of deleted friends. Though it only starts after you do this. Install another browser that fbp can run on, on your computer, different to the one you normally use, or you could use a portable version of the browser you do already use, and just save it in a different location.

    The “F” key is not working to replay the deleted friend alert. I tried within one minute of seeing it pop up. Tried “F”, Shift-F, Alt-F, Ctrl-F, everything short of F-U!!!+

    • admin says:

      It works ok for me. The other way of opening it is clicking the pink highlighted link in the left of the newsfeed, if that is not there, then the deleted friend alert is not available.
