Facebook is a continuous distraction; we open it to take a little break for a few minutes and we always end up wasting hours to browse through the newsfeed. This can be “positive” if we have some freetime we don’t know how to spend, but if it interferes with the study or the work may be useful to limit this distraction. Let’s see a simple way to do it.
Today we mark a new extension, it’s called News Feed Eradicator for Facebook. A name that perfectly describes its operation; the extension should eliminate (or hide) any news from the wall section, deleting any distractions to the root.
News Feed Eradicator for Facebook, it is completely free and now available for Google Chrome’s users. You can check it and download it here. After you’ve got it on the store, you can simply come back on your Facebook’s home and get a completely empty wall, with all posts momentarily removed and replaced by one quote.
It’s true that the extension hides any news from the newsfeed. Although it allows to visit profiles and pages, receive notifications and messages, and friends request. You can chat too.
