Install the 24.1 update from SocialFixer.com


Major Improvements

  • Updated code to once again hide all Sponsored Posts from the news feed!

Minor Change

  • The Friend Manager will not check to see if a user’s profile still exists after they unfriend you. This caused a problem with some users that made their account get locked out. In order to prevent this problem, this feature was removed until a more robust solution can be put in place.

Hide Political Posts From Your News Feed With Social Fixer

Is your news feed filled with Politics that you wish would just go away? Luckily, the Social Fixer browser extension will do exactly that. Here’s how to hide politics from your news feed using pre-made filters in 4 easy steps:

  1. Download the Social Fixer browser extension if you don’t have it already. It plugs right into your browser (Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari, +more) and changes how Facebook works, adding lots of great features - including the ability to filter posts in your news feed.
    Download from SocialFixer.com

  2. Once installed, reload Facebook. You’ll see a menu badge appear. Click this wrench and choose Social Fixer Options to open the options menu.

  3. Choose the “Filters” section on the left, and scroll down to the bottom of the right panel. This is the list of ready-made post filters that you can simply enable and use. Find the one labeled “Election/Politics 2019”. This one hides political posts from your news feed and replaces them with a small note saying that a post was hidden. Click the + icon to add it to your list of Active Filters.

  4. Click “Save Changes” and refresh your news feed (F5). Poof! The political posts are gone! Instead, you’ll see this small message in your feed where a post would have been:

You can still click on the message to show the original post, just in case.

Filters Auto-Update To Stay Current

Don’t worry about updating your political keywords to keep blocking posts as the names and words change. That’s all done automatically for you.

Every day, Social Fixer checks for filter updates from the development team and applies them automatically. So if a new word becomes common and posts aren’t filtered, rest assured it will soon vanish from your view.

As of this writing, the political filter already matches all of these terms: obama,trump,trumpies,trumpers,putin,pence,hillary,bernie,libertarian,green party,election,republican,republicans,democrat,democrats,democratic,political,politics,politician,clinton foundation,electoral,ben carson,chris christie,giuliani,ivanka,inauguration,kellyanne conway,betsy devos,elizabeth warren,Mitch McConnell,biden,hannity,kushner,mueller report,robert mueller,bob mueller,kamala harris,buttigieg,beto,andrew yang,cory booker,julian castro,john delaney,kirsten gillibrand,john hickenlooper,jay inslee,amy klobuchar,tim ryan,tulsi gabbard,seth moulton,eric swalwell,marianne williamson,william weld

More Pre-Made Filters

A number of additional pre-made filters are ready for you to add. These filters address common requests from users and take different actions on posts depending on the filter - for example, you can Hide Sponsored Posts! These all auto-update, so you can just “set it and forget it”.

Create Your Own Filters

Social Fixer has powerful filtering capabilities you’ll want to explore by creating your own filters. You can act based on a post’s author, keywords in the post, links posted, and many other details about the post. And you can hide posts, move them to tabs, change how they appear, and more. It’s easy to get started and play around, while the depth of functionality gives you all the control you would want.

Lots More Features

In addition to filtering your news feed, Social Fixer has lots of other great features to help you customize your Facebook experience. Be sure to check out the list of features and see what else it can do for you.
