  • (2017-08-05) Elizabeth: This did not work at all. If I could rate lower than one star I would. My husband and I are struggling to have a baby, and I just couldn't stand to look at my feed and see all of the people that I know having children anymore. So, I was hoping that this would help. I put in the longest string of baby/pregnancy related words that I could come up with. No more than ten minutes later, I log onto Facebook to see the first post is about a pregnant co-worker's baby shower! I followed the instructions in the FAQ. I am extremely disappointed that this did not work, even following the creator's instructions.
  • (2017-04-09) Autumn Fehl: Couldn't get it to work at all. Followed the instructions in the FAQ and nothing.
  • (2017-02-13) Useless for Facebook. I've tried uninstalling & reinstalling, cache clearing, restarting... and all to no avail. Just wanted to block one simple word... Trump
  • (2017-01-30) Bart Read: Sad to say doesn't work at all in Chrome 55 on OSX. Tried to use it to filter out the deluge of Trump-related posts on facebook and it had absolutely no effect.
  • (2016-11-26) Andrei Zdetoveţchi: Does absolutely nothing to my facebook feed. Uninstalled, sorry... :(
  • (2016-11-08) Irina Svetlowa: Hi, I am interested in acquiring your extension "Rather". Please contact me at: [email protected]
  • (2016-10-12) Adrian Flores: I've still got Trump on my Facebook.
  • (2016-10-09) Eddie Savage: Update! Tried uninstalling and reinstalling again and it is now working. Thank you, thank you! You keep me sane! Hey, guys - this is super frustrating! The extension is installed (uninstalled and reinstalled) but it is no longer filtering my newsfeeds on Facebook or Twitter. Please help!
  • (2016-10-04) Farrah Cañavera Buelvas: No volvi a ver a las Kardashian, se merecen 10 estrellas
  • (2016-07-27) Marcy Harbut: It worked for a few hours, and then just stopped.
  • (2016-07-18) Mark: If ever there was a right time for this to work I'd say around now with all the 'Pokemon GO' fever going on on Facebook. But it ain't helping me. Please MAKE IT STOP!
  • (2016-06-25) claudia kapranos: Thank you, fellas.
  • (2016-05-16) AJ Johnston: Doesn't work on Facebook for me.
  • (2016-05-09) Candice B: Useless for facebook. I've tried uninstalling & reinstalling, cache clearing, restarting... and all to no avail. Absolutely none of the filter lists work. I can't speak to its usefulness on Twitter.
  • (2016-05-08) Grant Bacaltos: My feed's a lot happier now. I can choose to replace things I'd rather not see with cute animals or Pokemon. A minor inconvenience though, is that the blacklisted word needs to be exact (except for casing I think). So if you blacklisted "Blah" then the word "Blah2016" will still be displayed on your feed. You have to include both on your blacklist.
  • (2016-02-12) Jordan Khan: Awesome! It's not perfect but man, It has saved me from all the baby pictured out there. Thank you so much. You've saved my friendships because now I don't have to block, un follow or resent them lol
  • (2016-02-11) Marc Zero: doesn't work.
  • (2016-02-07) Luci Delazeri: Cumpre o que promete :)
  • (2016-01-28) Bjarb J: It replaced content with pornograsphic images. I am pretty peeved seeing as I am at work and this could have been really bad for me. It was very offensive content from a porn website. I dont understand, but replacement list is very innocent, it includes alpacas, cats, animals, and sheep. I just wanted images of animals rather than the kardashians and I get something even more offensive than that!
