F.B. Purity is a nice elegant browser extension that cleans up your Facebook homepage by allowing you to customize Facebook anyway you want.
F.B. Purity manages to do everything that you can ask for! – Block posts from pages, apps, questions, quizzes, annoying games from your news feed, and all the other things that you don’t care about, like “liking” and “friending” from showing up. You can block the annoying “someone you might know?” box as well. Tired of seeing all those annoying ads? Yep, you can make them go away.
Custom text filters also allow you to block all the mention of a particular word on Facebook. If you are not a big fan of the new Timeline, F.B. Purity can reformat it to a less confusing single column layout.
Another most useful thing is that you don’t have to go through an app to read what your friends are reading. FBP lets you go directly to the news article, this means what you read wont show up in other peoples tickers or newsfeed, and you wont get hassled with the news organisations application page wanting you to add the application every time you click a news article link.
Lastly, if you want to, you can always view the hidden content with a click of a mouse.
