Block Facebook Similar Stories

thumb5Facebook Similar Stories Annoying You?

Well not anymore! You can block Facebook Similar stories by downloading ad block plus in Chrome for Firefox. It’s an add on, free to use. Once you have it downloaded, updated and installed properly follow these steps.

In Chrome – right click the ABP icon on the toolbar at the top. Select options. Click on Add your own filters. (You may not need the last one.) Put

facebook.com##.mvs
facebook.com##.uiHeaderTitle

facebook.com##.uiStreamEdgeStoryLine
facebook.com##.uiStreamEdgeStoryLineWithLabel
facebook.com##._5j5v

In the slot and press Add Filter. Now refresh your page.

In Firefox – click the ABP icon on the toolbar, from the drop down select filter preferences. Click on Custom filters. Click add filter group IF one isn’t already there. If one is already there click add filter.  (You may not need the last one.) Put

facebook.com##.mvs
facebook.com##.uiHeaderTitle

facebook.com##.uiStreamEdgeStoryLine
facebook.com##.uiStreamEdgeStoryLineWithLabel
facebook.com##._5j5v

In the slot, now refresh your page.

You are sorted. Now when you like a comment, or photo someone shared of a fan page, you will no longer get the drop down annoying content of similar Facebook stories. I’m using the EasyList filter in case you are wondering.

Don’t have ad block, you can download it below and find out more about it as well.
