My Brill Game Site
- Summary
Current State: Completed
Last updated: 17-Jan-2022

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.

Current spam levels: Unrecoverable

I've gave up!

The amount of complete rubbish on the platform is too much. That, coupled with the fact that the company appears to be more and more focused on just keeping you 'doom scrolling' than it does adding actual interesting and helpful features, means that I can no longer justify staying on the platform.

Hence, in December of 2021 I deactivated my account.

I still use it for Messenger, because that at least is still a handy tool for keeping in touch with friends and family, but I no longer use the main site or apps. It's such a shame, it could have been amazing but it has let itself become a cesspool of ads, click bait and complete bollocks.

I was using Facebook more and more for keeping in touch with friends and family but the amount of spammy posts on it had reached ridiculous levels. And not just paid advertising (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 was to block all of these pages so that all I saw in my feed was the actual content my friends and family makes, i.e. statuses they post or photos they upload.

Sadly my attempts were in vain and I eventually deactivated my account.

Before I had, here is a list of pages I had blocked so far:
