Join the protest against Facebook. Lets get FB Purity unblocked on Facebook

You may have heard that Facebook is introducing AutoPlay videos in the newsfeed, and  soon after that will come the AutoPlay video ads.

I’ve been working on getting a fix for F.B. Purity that will allow you to disable the autoplay videos/ads in your newsfeed. To check out how far I have got visit the FB Purity Beta Testing page, and try the latest version of FBP.

Its hard to get the word out about it when Facebook is blocking all links to the FB Purity website, and spreading lies that FB Purity is unsafe even though there is comprehensive proof that the FB Purity site and software are completely safe.

Lets all join together and get Facebook to listen to us for a change: Join the protest against Facebook Lets get FB Purity unblocked!

Let Facebook know that We dont want autoplay videos, We dont want spam We dont want junk, We want FB Purity!

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.
    An example of the FB Purity Deleted Friends Alert Popup message.
  • Friend Whitelist – You can now specify the friends whose posts you dont want FBP to filter out from the newsfeed.
    F.B. Purity Friend Whitelist
  • 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.

Download / Install the latest version of F.B. Purity (v9.0.0)

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.

F.B. Purity v8.6.1 Speeds Up filtering, Fixes hide pokes + more fixes

 

Filter out the junk on Facebook with FB Purity

Use FB Purity to Cleans up and Customize facebook. Hide all the ads! Get rid of Suggested Posts / Suggested Pages / Sponsored Posts etc

I’ve just released v8.6.1 of F.B. Purity the browser extension that lets you clean up and customize what you see on Facebook.  This version is mainly a maintenance release, fixing various things.

Changes:

  • The start up time of the extension has been improved a great deal, meaning its faster to start filtering, hiding content and applying your CSS style changes when you load the facebook page. This means you should see even less of the ads, as they should be already filtered out before the page finishes loading.
  • Fixed the  hide “Pokes” in the right hand column option.
  • Added a ‘hide “Like Page” button’ option for hiding those annoying “Like Page” buttons that show up on shared items in the newsfeed. ( This option is under the “Newsfeed Filters” / “Link / Page Stories” heading on the FBP options screen )
  • Fixed the hide emoticons option, this filter should filter out emoticons in more locations than before.  ( This option hides the small graphical smileys on Facebook)
  • Fixed the intermittent functioning of the “restore comment button” option. ( This option stops the “Enter” key from submitting your comment before you are ready to submit it, allowing you to easily write multi line comments)
  • Fixed the intermittent functioning of the “fix external link redirection” option.  ( This option stops Facebook tracking and intercepting the external links that you click when browsing Facebook. )
  • Fixed the display of the FBP info bar and newsfeed filtering functionality for some users.

As usual you can get the updated version of F.B. Purity via the F.B. Purity website : http://fbpurity.com

If you like F.B. Purity appreciate all the work I have put into this, please support F.B. Purity by sharing it with your friends, giving it positive reviews and donating, which you can do via http://donate.fbpurity.com

Some Facebook Tips :

Facebook Graph Search

If you are interested in trying out Facebook’s new “Graph Search” feature, which is basically a new Facebook search engine, and you don’t already have it enabled on your Facebook account, you can test it out by switching your Facebook language to “English (US)”. To do that click the “cogwheel” icon in the top right of your page, then select “Account Options” then select “English (US)”  as the language. You will then automatically be able to use the “Facebook Graph” Search engine, via the new search box at the top of your Facebook page.

If on the other hand you have the new “Facebook Graph” search but dont like it, or you simply prefer having the notifications on the left hand side of the search box, instead of the right hand side, you can for now turn off Facebook Graph search by switching your Facebook language to anything other than “English (US)”, see the above instructions on how to change your Facebook language. That should turn off Graph Search and revert your notifications to the left side of the search box.

Get FB Purity and enjoy a cleaner, purer more streamlined Facebook

FB Purity Update v8.5.2 – Fixes TL button for graph search bar, hide emoticons option + some font setting display fixes

FB Purity - Clean up Facebook

FB Purity – Cleans up and Customizes Facebook

I’ve released F.B. Purity v8.5.2

Changes Summary:
* Fixed the “TL” button, for switching Facebook “Like Pages” (aka Fan Pages) from the two column layout to a single column layout. (Previously the button wouldnt show up if you had the new Graph Search Bar, it should show up again now).
* Fixed the “Hide Emoticons” option. (most emoticons should be hidden again now)
* Fixed some display issues when the font size setting was enabled.
* Added “Games you may like” to the apps/games filter in the newsfeed.

Please note the Safari version of the extension can no longer be updated, as Apple do not support Safari on Windows any more, and do not provide information on how to renew the Safari Developers Certificate for Windows users. If you want the latest version of FBP and are a Safari user, i suggest you install Chrome or Firefox instead.

BTW if you are curious to try out Facebook’s new graph search feature, and its not yet been enabled on your account, you can enable it, by switching your Facebook interface language to “English (US)” in your Facebook account settings. Once you have enabled the language change, Graph Search will be enabled on your account. If you want to remove the Graph Search bar, you can simply switch your language setting back to whatever it was before. I’m expecting this workaround wont last long, as they will probably be launching Graph Search for all languages soon.
