Facebook Purity

Several years ago, I discovered this handy little app called Facebook Purity – you can only use it on a pc, it’s just a little download that is totally amazing. It allows you to block ads from appearing on your Facebook page, filter words and pictures – I hate snow, and hate seeing endless pictures of snow in Winter – I know what that shit looks like, don’t need to see pictures, no it isn’t pretty, I purely hate it. It’s an amazing little tool.

Facebook hates it. Apparently they have people working tirelessly to break it. They’ve recently had some success, and now those stupid stories are showing up on the top of the page. I can live with that, don’t like it but it’s not the worst thing ever.

But they’ve broken the ad block. Every. Fourth. Post. is a FREAKIN ad for some crap. How the heck does anyone even use this site? I’m seeing ads for crap I would never even think of using!

I guess they really don’t want people using that platform.

    Does AdBlocker Plus help? I’m not on FB, so I don’t know if it is effective or not.

    • not on Facebook. The ads are embedded in the page and very intrusive. I know that’s how they make their millions and that Fuckerberg totally does not care if it’s annoying but …………. it’s annoying when they work so very hard to make sure you can’t escape the shit

  3. Yes, we all know that the ‘price’ of having free Facebook access means having to see these ads being paid for as we scroll down our news feed. I use Facebook primarily to see what’s new in extended family and friends’ lives, and scroll pretty quickly until I see the name of someone I know appear. It is what it is….

  4. I don’t use Facebook but my husband does. I swear there is mind control in it. Every day he spends time scrolling through and he ends up cranky about something. It like they want you wasting your emotion on whatever they can spin you up over and not something real. Instagram is similar but mostly a time waster, like Pinterest.

  5. So glad I deleted my Facebook account. I have my “friends” ample warning that I was going to do that an how they can contact me if needed. I. Do. Not. Miss. It. At. All.

    I haven’t been on Pinterest much as they keep showing me things that THEY think I want to see. I guess they don’t know I can think for myself.

    I’m sure that ad blocker will fix a work around for it :). I deleted my face book a couple of years ago, I don’t even miss the drama at all and now I have more time to knit and spin :). LOL sorry but I do put up pictures of snow on my blog to harass my sister who lives in FL, lol.

    Three words: Get. Off. Facebook. I left back in 2015 and trust me, it’ll change your life! It was a very liberating decision to make and I haven’t regretted it for a second. 😀
