AdblockPlus adds more Facebook blocking

AdblockPlus now has additional Facebook blocking
Customizable Facebook page

quote:
Under default settings, ABP blocks all Facebook ads – sponsored stories, page post ads, standard ads, promoted posts or otherwise. But there are other unneeded, potentially unwanted elements that insert themselves automatically into your news feed and sidebar. Now you can block these too.
Also Note:
Adblock Plus development IRC channel is now open

Good to hear. Facebook went after Social Fixer because of the same reasons although AdblockPlus doesn't do it the same way.

Not trying to go Off Topic but thought this is pertinent to the conversation:
I use both - here is the author's blog post on what Facebook wanted him to remove from Social Fixer and why.

»socialfixer.com/blog/2013/10/05/···eatures/

Here is his blog post on the compromise-
»socialfixer.com/blog/2013/10/12/···ltering/

""As a compromise, I agreed to remove the Friend Tracker and any specific features which filter out ads or paid posts. ""

In other articles online that covered this, some wondered if something similar may befall ABP.

I have read them also. Guess time will tell what happens with the next Social Fixer update. My group is all family and high school friends from 1961 so I don't use all the other STUFF.

I use FB Purity. I don't see any of their crap. FB is trying to shut this one down too, apparently. But so far, so good.

It's seriously customizable too, which is nice.
