Facebook wants to be the place you go for everything, news, friends, videos, shopping and gaming.
But sometimes you don’t want that. Sometimes you just want Facebook to do what it used to do: show you what your friends were up to.
Now there’s a new Google Chrome extension called “Facebook Friends Feed” that does just that.
The extension, created by Juraj Ivan, cuts down your Facebook feed so it only shows you posts from your friends (or pages you follow). No more suggestions, no more pages one of your friends liked, no more ads – unless you’re already following the brand.
“I realized that I visit Facebook too often because there is always something new, but mostly it’s stories from people and pages I don’t follow. But these stories appear on my news feed because my friends liked them. Having my news feed cluttered like that, I often miss stories from friends themselves,” Ivan wrote on Product Hunt.
Ivan writes that it has personally already helped him significantly cut down on the time he wastes on Facebook.
Once you add this extension in your Google Chrome browser, your Facebook news feed will only display posts from your friends and from the pages you follow. The other content like advertisements will not be able to find its place on your news feed. Also, posts from your second connections meaning the posts liked by your friends, which obviously doesn’t concern you much, will be eliminated.
Juraj says it took him only 24 hours from the moment he got the idea till he was able to submit the complete extension on Product Hunt
