The Big Hide

Sick fed up of trailing through post upon post of utter garbage on Facebook I have taken it upon myself to rid my newsfeed of un-interesting, click-baiting, like-whoring posts.

I know this technically isn't game related but given the prevalence of Facebook in everything these days I thought it may be of interest none the less.

History

I'm using Facebook more and more these days for keeping in touch with friends and family but the amount of spammy posts on it has reached ridiculous levels. I don't mean paid advertising which appears in your feed (which is a necessary evil to keep Facebook free) but rather the 'Share to win' pictures, the 'This is hilarious' videos and the 'Number 6 is amazing' lists that people insist on liking and sharing.

My goal is to block all of these pages so all I see in my feed is the actual content my friends and family makes, i.e. statuses they post or photos they upload.
