Hide Political Facebook Posts – A Step-By-Step Guide – Part 2

Thursday, October 6th, 2016 by | Filed Under: Uncategorized

With election season in full swing, your Facebook feed can be a dangerous place to go. In part 1 of this series, we talked about ways¬† to avoid the endless stream of political posts.¬† Today I’ve got another way. I’ve told you before about Facebook Purity, an extension that lets you really customize your Facebook feed and avoid a lot of clutter.

Here’s how to use it: Go here and click on the big green download button. You can get the Purity extension for Firefox, Chrome, Edge, Safari, Opera, and Maxthon.


Then you give your browser permission to install the extension. It will take a couple of minutes to install. When you open Facebook up for the first time after installing, you’ll see this screen. You can click for a walk-through if you like.


To access your Facebook Purity settings, you can just click the FBP at the top of your Facebook feed.


Head over to the Text Filter and type words and phrases you’d like to avoid in the box. If you need help, you can click Text Filter Help to explain the best way to phrase the words you’d like blocked from your feed. Make sure to hit Save and Close at the bottom when you’re finished.


This, combined with the steps in part 1, should help alleviate the political clutter a bit. Or you could just close Facebook and read a book until the election is over.
