Important Info about the “Posts From Across Facebook” thing that is showing up in some people’s Newsfeeds. Facebook is testing a new “Feature” on some users called “Posts from Across Facebook” basically, this shows up after Facebook decides you have seen enough posts from your friends, groups you have joined and Pages you have liked, and instead starts showing you posts from Pages you have not actually liked! There is nothing FBP can do about this, other than hide those posts, which you can do by ticking the Hide “Fan Page Posts” option, which is located under the “Various Post Types” heading on the FBP options screen, the only problem with that is, that it will also hide posts from Pages you have actually liked.

If you do choose that option, the Space / Rocket ship image will still show, but you can hide that too by putting the text “Posts From Across Facebook” into the “Text Filter” box on the FBP options screen. This solution will not create new posts in your Newsfeed, FBP simply cannot do that, so your newsfeed will be cut short, as it can only filter out posts that Facebook presents in the Newsfeed. So the only real solution to see more posts if you are stuck with this monstrosity is to try viewing other feeds such as Friends List Feed, the Friends Feed, Pages Feed, or view individual friends Timelines (You can see which of your friends have new posts by going to the following page : https://www.facebook.com/me/friends_with_unseen_posts )

Important Information for Chrome Users of F.B. Purity

If you have  installed the FBP Chrome extension via the “Inline Install” method (by clicking the green “Install F.B. Purity” button on the FBP Install page) or directly via the Chrome Webstore, you should now receive automatic updates (Chrome checks for extension updates once every 5 hours). If you don’t want to wait, and know an update is available you can force an update by turning on “Developer Mode” on the Chrome extensions management page, then clicking the “Update Extensions Now” button (make sure you don’t have any facebook tabs open, so Chrome can unload the existing version first).

 To let other Google Chrome users know that FBP is safe and a great way to clean up Facebook Please leave a 5* review for F.B. Purity in the Google Chrome Webstore

Important Information for Microsft Edge users of F.B. Purity

FB Purity is now available as an official Microsoft Edge extension obtainable directly from the Microsoft Edge store  So the old method of installing the FBP GM Script via the Tampermonkey extension is no longer required. If you install the official Edge FBP extension from the Microsoft Edge store, it should auto-update when new versions are released in future. Be aware however that the Microsoft Store has a slow (manual) approval process for accepting extension updates, so the new version will not show up in the Microsoft Store for a day or two after I release an extension update.

Important Information for Opera users of F.B. Purity

The FB Purity extension for Opera is now initially installed from this site via the “Inline” install method which actually sideloads the extension from the official Opera extensions website. Once it has been installed in that manner or via the Opera extensions site itself, whenever updates to the FBP extension are uploaded and approved on the Opera extensions site, the version of FBP in your browser should auto-update at some point. It can sometimes be triggered by closing the browser, waiting a bit and re-opening it, there is also an “Update Extensions Now” button on the Opera extensions management page.

All other  FBP users can update to the latest version of FB Purity by clicking the green “Install F.B. Purity” button on the FB Purity Install page on FBPURITY.COM and then following the on screen instructions.

P.S. Tips for Mobile users who want to access Facebook on the move

Although there is no FBP mobile app available, for security and privacy reasons, I advise you not to use any of Facebook’s apps as they require access to everything on your phone. Its safer and better for your privacy to access Facebook via the mobile website. If you use the standard Facebook mobile website m.facebook.com you will notice you can’t access your messages on that version of the site, there is however a more basic version of the website that does let you send and receive messages, the other bonus is that there are apparently no ads on the site and it loads much quicker, to access the basic FB mobile website go here: mbasic.facebook.com
