    Hide People You May Know is not working!

    • admin says:

      yes, i’m aware that that option has stopped for some people, it seems facebook is making a code change. i will see what i can do about it, but facebook are trying to make it impossible to block their annoyances. one thing you can try is, if it appears as a box in the newsfeed: try putting the text “people you may know” into FBP’s Custom Text Filter (without the quotes)

  2. User20144 says:

    With Custom Text Filter it doesn’t work either.
    I will wait and see if you come up with a solution.
    Thanks for looking into it.
    Have a nice weekend.

      try reinstalling/updating fbp, the hide people you may know option should work now, (you need to have your facebook language set to English, for it to work though)

  3. HELP I put a picture in as background and don’t want it. Have no idea how to change it back! Can’t find in directions either. HELP!

    Hi. I do want to hide the “Set as Background Image” line that always pop up under my pictures. Is that possible to get rid of this option (either from FBP panel or else)? I do not want to have anything to do with backgrounds on FB and this line bugs me since the option exists :)
