Facebook has started rolling out some new Ad Code which is much harder to block, which means the ads may start to get past F.B. Purity’s filters, soon.
Never fear! FBP has a new solution for you. While I am trying to figure out a way to hide the ads in the main newsfeed. Try this trick: If you add F.B. Purity to your browser, it adds new items to the “Newsfeed” drop down menu (at the top of the left column of the newsfeed), as shown in the image. If you select “Friends Feed“, you will be taken to a feed that just shows your friends posts, and no posts from “Pages” and no Ads.
F.B. Purity also has an option that will try and keep you on that Feed permanently. It works similarly to the “News Sort: Most Recent” option, but with the “News Sort: Friends Feed” option, you first need to select the Friends Feed manually as mentioned to get it to start working.
If you also want to be able to view posts from the Pages you have liked without any ads, you can click the “Pages Feed” link in the left column. If you don’t have that link in your left column, you can visit it via this link : https://www.facebook.com/pages/feed (bookmark the page if you want to visit it regularly)
Bonus tip: if you put the text “Suggested Post” (without the quotes) into FBP’s Text Filter box, it should filter out some of the ads on the main newsfeed.
F.B. Purity is a safe, free and top rated browser extension that lets you clean up and customize Facebook.
