The "AdBlocker for Facebook™" extension removes sponsored posts from Facebook. Note that this is not a normal adblocker extension, it only detects and removes sponsored posts that are inserted within your actual feed. If there are other sorts of ads, this extension will simply ignores them. Facebook has a very complex algorithm to insert these sponsored posts among your feed which makes it pretty hard to detect them. This extension examines each post and removes the ones containing the sponsored keyword on their subtitle section. Unlike normal adblocker extensions, there is no network observer to remove scripts based on rules. It just listens over the post creation event and examines each post and removes those that match some criteria. This method is more efficient and less intrusive compared to the network observer method. Since Facebook uses a variety of methods to insert these posts, usually the network observer method is not detecting all of them correctly. This extension does not care how the post gets generated, it just evaluates the final post element and makes the decision based on how the post looks.

FAQs

  1. What is the "Adblocker for Facebook™" extension and how does it work?

    This extension injects a single minimal JS script before a Facebook page is loaded. This script monitors and evaluates each post before being inserted to the DOM tree and if it matches some criteria, it will get blocked. Since there are many methods to inject sponsored posts into your Feed section, adblocking methods are inefficient of detecting and removing these posts. However, since Facebook is required to insert the "Sponsered" link for each post that is actually sponsored, this keyword can be used to flag the posts. Although there are some methods to garbled the keyword, this extension tries to bypass them and remove the post when detected.

  2. recommended "Weather Forecast" extension for Chrome, Edge, Firefox, and Opera browsers

    Get local and long-range weather forecasts (including feels-like temperature) for multiple locations right in your browser toolbar. Read more here.

  3. What is the difference between this extension and other similar extensions that offer the same functionality

    This extension only has a single small controlling script which is injected to the Facebook pages before the actual page is loaded, hence it can control how the page adds elements to the DOM tree. Usually, other similar extensions prefer to install web request observer and block the scripts that are responsible for generating the sponsored posts. This method is inefficient and very buggy as the server side code can get updated anytime so the extension would need updated rules frequently.

  5. Does this extension have an options page?

  6. How can I disable the extension temporarily?

    This extension at current design does not offer any toolbar button in the UI to toggle it on and off. To disable the monitoring module, you will need to disable the extension from the extension manager of your browser. In Firefox, open "about:addons" in a browser tab and in Chrome, open "chrome://extensions" in a browser tab. Now find the extension and hit the disable button. Note that you will also need to refresh any open Facebook pages to see the blocked sponsored post again.
