Description from store Please visit http://SocialFixer.com for a full list of features and documentation. Social Fixer is filled with features to make your Facebook experience better. And it now works with the NEW FACEBOOK LAYOUT! Filter posts in the news feed by content, author, link url, and more Built-in Filter Subscriptions let you just pick a filter and use it without knowing how it works. Pre-defined filters include hiding Sponsored Posts, Political posts, things your friends like, and much more. Hide posts you've read and are done with, so they don't appear in the news feed anymore. Select from a list of Display Tweaks to customize the interface, or write your own with CSS. Force FB to stay on the Most Recent feed Hide parts of the page you don't want to see, like panels in the left or right columns. Comment Navigator lets you expand all comments and replies to a post, and highlight comments that are older than an age you specify. Tips point you to built-in Facebook settings and options and suggest values to make your experience better. Stealth Mode hides Like buttons, Comment areas, etc so you can browse Facebook without accidentally interacting with posts you don't intend to. Show full timestamps on posts, rather than relative times like "1 hr ago". Anonymize for screenshots with one click - hide friend names, group names, profile pictures, etc. If you want to share a conversation or screenshot but not your privacy, anonymize first. Filters and Tweaks are updated regularly and automatically available to you to use without any additional work. Features will be added continuously to make your Facebook experience as great as possible!

  • (2022-11-08) Edward Roberts: No longer working and it seems very little effort being made to fix it. They haven't even bothered to update the description in the Chrome store, stating that it now works with the "new" Facebook layout!
  • (2022-10-29) Harley Kradovill: Disabled sponsored posts, refreshed the page and the first thing that comes up is a sponsored post.
  • (2022-10-22) Tome Wilson: It was great while it lasted, but it was abandoned and no longer works as of July 2022.
  • (2022-10-21) Jonathan B: Abandonware. No longer works. Don't bother. It was great while is lasted.
  • (2022-10-10) Zahara Kendagor: It recently stopped blocking sponsored posts. And apparently this extension hasn't been updated since 2021, so that might not be a good sign
  • (2022-10-07) Saidi S.: Doesnt work, Trying utilize all setting like subcribe to filter and add keyword filter, all sponsored post still show up. Yes I'm saving the setting and reload the page.
  • (2022-08-18) Roman Т: Hide Notification Bubble Tweak stopped working. Fix Enter In Comments, Replies & Chat - also not working.
  • (2022-08-08) Tymoteusz Wojnarowski: Sorting posts by date works, but hiding sponsored posts doesn't work.
  • (2022-07-21) Mindos: Ads reappeared, possible patch maybe?
  • (2022-07-17) Gordon Fraser: Was working great until a few days ago, now adverts have re-appeared. Update required?
  • (2022-07-17) Penguins Fan: Sadly Sponsored ads have come back
  • (2022-07-16) Víctor Hugo Toledo Cofré: I've been using it for a long time and it's a good extension. Unfortunately it has ceased to block "sponsored" ads as of 15 July 2022.
  • (2022-07-04) dennis skibinski: I haven't tried it yet I'll let you know after I tried it.
  • (2022-05-26) A S.: 1. support Marketplace please. 2. support facebook watch please. 3. the app has too complicated options page. still a nice extension as facebook filter
  • (2022-05-02) Philippe Bartolini Castiglia: A peine installé, déjà adopté sans aucune réserve ! Les filtres proposés sont très pertinents et l'extension fait très bien son travail :) Merci !
  • (2022-05-01) Mark Mancera: News feed now loads slow and most of the times doesnt load at all after installing this. avoid this extension at all costs.
  • (2022-04-06) AG2009: There is no option to remove side panels/columns as mentioned in the overview
  • (2022-03-18) Stanislav Dimitrov: It's not blocking sponsored posts which is why I installed it... Had to search for an alternative and luckily found BlockZilla - it works like a magic, highly recommend it.
  • (2022-02-13) Mirek 1893: Používal jsem jako doplněk pro mobilní prohlížeče, původně Kiwi browser a teď jsem zkoušel na Yandexu. Původně výborný doplněk. Teď ale v Kiwi vůbec nejdou přepínat položky v nastavení, takže nejde vůbec nastavit a v Yandexu se ono okno s nastavením vůbec neotevře. Tohle byl jediný doplněk o kterém vím, že mě mohl zbavit spamování příspěvky ze skupin, kde mám sledování vypnuto a mám jich plný kanál vybraných příspěvků. Jenže bohužel...
  • (2022-01-10) Katarzyna Wolanin: I would like to thank you for Social Fixer! It finally makes my Facebook feed and groups a safe and nice place. I don't imagine using Facebook without that anymore. I have a small question. Is it possible to hide someone's comments in a group? I did a filter to hide their posts for me, but this certain person still comments on other posts. I wonder there's an option to hide their activities without blocking them.
  • (2021-12-20) Chris B: One of the best Add-Ons I've ever used. It does everything you can possibly want in an intuitive, simple, and user-friendly way. It gives YOU control over the Facebook experience and restores the freedom we once used to have. THANK YOU!!!
  • (2021-12-12) Konstantin Tokar: Не работает выбор режима показа всех комментариев
  • (2021-12-04) yaniv zisano: great
  • (2021-11-11) kate Hartsell: I love social Fixer, I can remove what I don't want to see on my Facebook page , Please keep up the great work you are doing.
  • (2021-09-21) Royce Morco: Would've been nice if it could totally remove and HIDE ADS permanently without clicking it manually in the settings
  • (2021-09-10) Der Steppenwolf: It's not blocking "sponsored" pages, which is the whole reason I got it!
  • (2021-08-24) Francisco Peralta: EDIT: they are on top of it. There is a fix for it. It is working fine now. From their support group: *** THE FIX *** wrench > Hide/Show Parts of the Page; click 'Done Hiding'; reload the page. It was working fine, but today I had to disable it since the main timeline gets hidden, all of it. I made no changes to the configuration since forever, so not sure what is going on.
  • (2021-07-26) Mel Sca: All'inizio funzionava, ma da tempo è come se non ci fosse. Non blocca niente, né i post con le parole selezionate, né gli sponsorizzati. Inutile, ormai.
  • (2021-07-14) Mr Anderson: It claims to do so much but barely works. The only partial thing I was able to do was block annoying hashtags on a board game feed, even though 50% still get through and annoy me. I still see 'suggested' posts even though that option was enabled.
  • (2021-06-18) Alan Henrique: It's really useful, but guys, come on... last update you put a giant useless date/time stamp right over the posts. How we are supposed to read it? Seriously, how dumb was that?
  • (2021-06-18) Jonathan Morrow: There is a giant date & time stamp over every post that I cannot remove. This is a HUGE inconvenience and I will most likely uninstall this extension since I cannot read posts with it installed. 2 stars only because features work as intended.
  • (2021-04-21) Lada Flac: I just love it! Saves time, saves nerves, no more ads or suggestions :)))
  • (2021-04-05) Sephya G.: I've used SFx for many years. It truly helps me not lose my mind when trying to navigate Facebook. The creator Matt and his great moderators are always so helpful in the SFx User Support Facebook page as well. Truly wonderful product. Facebook should be happy it exists as it's keeping so many people ON Facebook by being able to tweak thing more to their liking.
  • (2021-04-03) Jason T: Used to be good, but the consistency of red dot notifications kept increasing to indicate new updates or bug fixes, so it always looked like I had a notification. Even when I tried to dismiss it it would come back a few minutes later. I ended up deleting the extension to get rid of the red dot and haven't noticed a change in quality of life.
  • (2021-02-12) Renhoj: Finally I was able to hide an annoying hashtag on one of the groups I joined, it kept flooding my feed. Thanks for this!
  • (2020-12-03) Mike Robinson: I used to use this to hide posts that I've already seen so that I don't keep getting the same posts recommended over and over again after refreshing the page. Unfortunately this feature no longer works with the new Facebook layout since the posts you hide reappear after refresh. I hope they get it updated soon.
  • (2020-11-26) Olcay Fırtına: eskisi güzel
  • (2020-11-25) Claudio Freitas: Fantástico
  • (2020-11-02) MD SAHINUR: Doesn't work at all. Nothing. Maybe it worked in the past as others have said in here but i downloaded it today and almost nothing works, only the very basic things like recent stories.
  • (2020-10-31) Ihor Hodovanets: Works with the new Facebook layout.
  • (2020-10-24) Mandi Patera: I have been using this for ages now and never thought to leave a review. I absolutely love social fixer. I was about ready to leave Facebook all together when I found this lovely extension that fixes so much of what bothers me about Facebook. Now I also use the old layout extension made by the same guy. Honestly Matt, if it weren't for you I would absolutely hate Facebook...which is sadly the best way I have of keeping in contact with friends and family on the other side of the country. Please keep doing these, and know that your efforts are sincerely appreciated!
  • (2020-10-22) 孫建華: thank you you are great one!
  • (2020-09-29) Phương Nguyễn: like
  • (2020-09-28) Fulanitæ DeTal: No funciona con la nueva skin de FB
  • (2020-09-27) YouTube King: I use "Cent Browser" latest version, and the extension works perfectly along with other extensions without conflict or errors. I would have donated if I'm rich or have enough income. All I can give is my gratitude, so Thanks a million. P.S.: I've copied my comment from the review of the other extension, but I mean every word in it.
  • (2020-09-20) KHIELS: a lot of convenience function , hope to see it as an app
  • (2020-09-20) Tamás Pungor: Imádom
  • (2020-09-15) Frederick Fluchel: An excellent way to hide posts you don't want to see! I rely on this for sanity in these days.
  • (2020-09-11) Darren de Lima: This was one of the good, old extensions from the good, old days when Chrome used to have trapezoid tabs. Unfortunately, those days are gone and this extension doesn't work well any more. I now use Stylish and some Violentmonkey userscripts instead. Facebook UI is more or less unfixable, though, these days.
  • (2020-09-04) Deidre B: I love being able to follow friends while still keeping my sanity. My only complaint is that you don't see the text on why it hid something in dark view. There's no option to change the text color as far as I can tell so you end up with black text on a black background.

    How do I put in a filter to block advertisements and the thumbnail.
  • (2013-02-26, v:7.501) M: SF stopped working in Chrome
    SF is no longer working in Chrome. I checked the extensions in settings, and the extension is there. There is no sign of SF on my Facebook page. Thanks!
  • (2013-02-25, v:7.501) LaVonne Caudle: Social Fixer with Facebook
    I have ALWAYS used Social Fixer, by letting the site add it to my Google Chrome. Suddenly, IT WILL NOT WORK. I HAVE TRIED ABOUT 15 TIMES TODAY TO ADD IT, AND IT SAYS IT'S ADDED; HOWEVER, WHEN I GO TO "Profile" the "Social Fixer" icon is not at top of my wall, and none of the features or ways in which I have set Social Worker up in the past to work are working--NONE! Again, the WRENCH icon isn't even there. I CANNOT TOLERATE FACEBOOK WITHOUT SOCIAL FIXER. I HAVE PEOPLE WAITING FOR ME AS I RUN TWO MUSIC GROUPS ON FB, AND I WILL NOT GO TO FACEBOOK UNTIL I CAN "SOMEHOW" GET SOCIAL FIXER TO WORK! WHAT IS THE PROBLEM WITH THE SOCIAL FIXER APP, AND WHAT ON EARTH DO I DO TO GET IT TO "ACTUALLY" BE ADDED, AS IT "SAYS" IT HAS BEEN (BUT IT HAS NOT!)
  • (2013-01-30, v:7.321) Sathyaseelan Kumaran: Not working with social graph search
    I cannot click the settings icon since it is overlapped by the facebook graph search text box.
  • (2013-01-14, v:7.321) Amanda Pogue: Won't install
    Keeps telling me that the install file is not a .crx, which it clearly is.
  • (2012-12-25, v:7.321) Sandy C: problem
    saying i have 1 notification and when i click nothing so it wont go away.i disabled it and turned it on again and nothing.i am on google chrome
  • (2012-12-11, v:7.321) Renee Tufts: Won't Update
    I have been a user and financial supporter of Social Fixer for a few years. I love your program. Updating to the latest release used to involve a simple click. I am not totally computer illiterate but after attempting to install the new release it is not being installed. It still shows me as having version 7.301. I am very frustrated and at this point I have to disable Social Fixer due to the errors it keeps reporting.
  • (2012-12-10, v:7.321) Marlys L: 12-10 update
    how do I get todays update? It just takes me to Chrome Web Store
  • (2012-12-10, v:7.321) V D: Google Chrome
    Google Chrome constantly freezing, plus the select all button missing from events. I appreciate your time and effort. Vic.
  • (2012-12-08, v:7.301) Lysithea Su: Error: SECURITY_ERR : DOM Exception 18
    Error occurs while I open facebook. it shows "Error: SECURITY_ERR : DOM Exception 18" as a pop-up alert. Seem the cause is from Friend Tracker part. Please fix, thanks.
