  • (2021-01-22) Daniel Reneer: Beautiful. Facebook ads weren't getting my money anyways, and now I have my life back.
  • (2021-01-20) Shaun Kellogg: It's the best! It's cleared my facebook homepage out of the garbage posts from my friends.
  • (2021-01-18) M Rodenbach: Brilliant in the simplicity. Get back control with this smooth app and enjoy your new found liberty and time away from to much waste of energy, voyeurism, fishing for excitement or looking at the wrong place to battle boredom.
  • (2021-01-17) Kathy Ross: I have found that I am as addicted to social media as any addict is to any substance. Thank you for this. I am starting a 30 day social media detox. This is a wonderful thing. I plan on reading some books and writing in a journal. Once again, from the bottom of my heart, Thank You.
  • (2021-01-17) Hansaka Wickramasinghe: Does Exactly what it says, Very simple and Easy to implement. Who ever you are, you are the great. Thanks :)
  • (2021-01-16) Ander: Love it! It works so well, and I love the option to turn on the feed for a small amount of time (5mins, for example). Since FB *just* added the groups feed .. I would love an option to block that too!
  • (2021-01-12) Impuls Paramotor: Amazing tool! Must chave <3 Thank you
  • (2021-01-12) Catarina Caetano: Amazing!! It really helps people. I just wished it could have more quotes for us to read in the feed, not only one
  • (2021-01-10) Connor Stricklan: Love the design that allows you to unblock the feed for a set period of time. Works reliably and makes a difference for limiting the amount of time I waste. It's good to get updates from my feed to find out what my friends are doing, but sufficient to limit that to 10 min / week.
  • (2021-01-08) Corinne C: This is the best thing for my mental health while not having to actually delete Facebook. I can still interact the way I want to with groups and friends, but not seeing newsfeed posts that are upsetting from so called "friends" has been a blessing.
  • (2021-01-08) Ekai J: Helped me regain control of my workday and life. 10/10 would recommend. This along with DFYT is a critical and baseline required addition to the modern era.
  • (2021-01-08) Daniele Messina: The perfect way to remove FB feed from your micro-pauses. Not a slogan, it really works. Excellent!
  • (2021-01-06) Mateusz Leman: If you don't have this - you lose a lot of time!
  • (2021-01-05) Kamalaya Yang: Amazing, thank you so much! Can we get support for LinkedIn? It's really looking like FB nowadays...
  • (2021-01-03) Aissa Azzaz: This extension saved my digital life and help me clear my mind
  • (2020-12-27) Daniel Wilson-Omordia: A great extension. My only criticism is that the off-timers don't seem to work. When I use a timer instead of just turning off the eradicator, it stays on and my news feed is still blocked. Specifically on reddit. If this is fixed it's 5/5 stars!
  • (2020-12-22) Two tonne Khamen: highly recommend it. Saved so much time.
  • (2020-12-13) Henry Cheer: Best way to socials but not be at the mercy of every piece of clickbait going. Great for the avid procrastinator.
  • (2020-12-08) Leo Dong: thank you so much jordan
  • (2020-12-07) Jim Harshaw, Jr.: Been saving me time for years! Thank you for this!

  • (2020-11-27) Alec Salgado: Best extension ever man, this cured my FB addiction. Please Add Youtube
  • (2020-11-23) Percival Constantine: I was loving this extension, but it suddenly stopped working for Facebook. I've checked the settings and it's still set to block Facebook. I've tried disabling and re-enabling, tried uninstalling and reinstalling. But it's not working for Facebook anymore. Still blocks Twitter fine, though.
  • (2020-11-21) Thomas Joseph: thank you
  • (2020-11-17) Colm O'Reilly: Can you please add LinkedIn to this list?
  • (2020-11-13) Sathish Ramani: Very useful plugin when we have to use social media for specific personal or professional activities without getting distracted by the newsfeed. Excellent idea and plugin.
  • (2020-11-09) Kila Heem: Keep the account lose the cringe. Don't change.
  • (2020-10-31) Andre Lackner: Needs an update. Facebook redesigns itself to be more addicting and distracting every day, so it would be great to be able to also eradicate the feed for Groups, Marketplace, and Watch since they both show up at the top with those irresistible notification icons.
  • (2020-10-31) inBeat Software: Great extension, thank you for this!
  • (2020-10-28) Patricia Destriza: It's a very good chrome extension, because of it I was able to not scroll through my facebook feed. The only problem with this extension is that it doesn't work on Twitter. That time I activated my eradication for Twitter, but when I visited the website, my twitter feed hasn't been eradicated. I hope you'll be able to fix this bug. Thank you!
  • (2020-10-26) Marcel: Love this extension and thank you so much for it! However, suddenly twitter feed stopped being eradicated for some reason, not sure if being an Edge Browser user has to do with it (I know both are Chromium) or if some update to Twitters UI screwed it over, but I'd like to know if im the only one with problems. Thanks!
  • (2020-10-26) Will Helliwell: Love it! It works perfectly on Facebook and has stopped me scrolling on there completely. Update! Going back down to 4* as it's not working on Twitter at all anymore. My entire feed loads without the plugin quote showing up
  • (2020-10-23) Rebekah Johnston-Smith: Changed my life, thanks so much for this!
  • (2020-10-23) Gerry Saracco: Worked great, but sadly isn't working with the ugly new layout FB implemented at the moment (and yes, this is after the most recent update)
  • (2020-10-22) Garrett Owen: Great extension, happy to see it recently added Reddit and Hacker News. Now just need to add LinkedIn!
  • (2020-10-17) Moth Man: This extension. IS AMAZING. Keeps functionality of the website so I can use it for what I want to while keeping Facebook's evil dopamine loop from sinking it's claws into me. I have ADHD and the amount of hours I've wasted just scrolling endlessly was getting absurd. Thank you to the dev for making this!
  • (2020-10-13) Kate Duxler: So helpful in reducing distractions during the workday and beyond.
  • (2020-10-12) Alexandre Spiga: A must-have when you use FB in a professional way. Thank you!
  • (2020-10-09) Ahlecqs RD: Tem que atualizar esse negócio. Não tá funcionando depois da nova interface do facebook
  • (2020-10-07) Chris OConnor: This has been a great time-saver - I pop into FB, or Twitter, and give myself 5mins. And - quicker, that passes, and the screen goes WHITE (feed blocked). Such a great idea - and so simple. Thanks !
  • (2020-10-04) Jon Smithers: Great way to disarm that Facebook AI trynna maximize user engagement without regard for my own goals or wellbeing.

  • (2020-09-23) Iván Valeri: Amazing tool to focus and do not lose momentum!!!!
  • (2020-09-22) Michael Wilson: I don't often rate extensions, but this one is simple and does exactly what it sets out to, and might be one of the best chrome extensions out there.
  • (2020-09-21) Alec van: Amazing
  • (2020-09-19) Nico Villafuerte: I must say this extension has saved me so much procrastination time since I've started using it. Genius idea, better implementation. Would 100% recommend.
