Idiot’s two step guide for a cleaner facebook


https://i0.wp.com/bokardo.com/images/comics/facebook-01.gifYeah.. It’s coming to a crazy peak these days! How will this guy marry? How will that gal die? What Spongebob character are you? What flavor of pie are your neighbor? Do we care? It seems.. Yes. When I saw the clean, organized, pretty fb interface getting cluttered by hundreds of these crap – quizzes day by day, I sometimes wondered what’s wrong with these people. Facebook was turning into another hi5,tagged or mySpace for me.Then came…. the greasemonkey to the rescue.

  1. In Firefox  install the Greasemonkey add-on. Then you will see a small monkey face at the right bottom corner of your browser window.Unlike other firefox addons which does one particular thing, Greasemonkey extension lets you add so called ‘user scripts’ which can change behavior of a web page. In the next step we are going to try one such user script.fb2
  2. Click here to Install the Facebook Purity GreaseMonkey script. Go to facebook home and notice the difference. The script puts a little message in the top right hand corner of your page saying how many apps were blocked.

Gone are the days, that we kept blocking them and they were born next day with a different name again, again and again like a monster in a movie of the twentieth century. I have my neat facebook home page back again.

PS:

You can experiment with more and more GreaseMonkey Scripts to make your surfing easier, cleaner and effective. My favourite is IMDB pirated version. But try to avoid scripts which are not from userscripts.org.

If you are someone who is madly in love with these quizzes, I’m really sorry for killing off your enjoyment (and ultimate source of future predictions)😉. I never thought this will make it to a new blog post, but the sad status messages, and angry blog posts like this and this,all over the web, made me do this.

If you are using Chrome instead of Firefox, try GreaseMetal

  1. Thanks for the link to my post about my FB quiz, which really wasn’t made in anger but rather because I just like making fun of things. FB quizzes are a big bullseye.🙂

  2. OH! A great one. Very useful. Actually this is becoming a “must have” pluggin in these days. So thanks a lot for posting it out here. I’m gonna kick that crap right away🙂

  3. I got my the “monkey” in the corner, alright. Installed, while searching for a JScript debugger, but never new what he can do. Thanks, mate.
