People have a love/hate relationship with the world’s most popular social network. There are constant complaints about various changes in the UI, privacy issues, sneaky ad encroachment, and ever present drama from the “friends” you interact with most.
Keeping up an online social presence can, in fact, turn out to be more of a chore than a diversion. To break up the tedium, I’ve compiled a fun little list of easy-to-implement changes that put the fun back into socializing online.
This should be a no brainer, but online social networks are only as entertaining as the people you know. Look for the interesting folks in your own networks and follow their posts. That way, Facebook will prioritize their content in your news feed.
Oh, you didn’t know? You can remove advertisements from Facebook entirely. Use the Cleaner Facebook Chrome extension and you can hide ads, sponsored posts, and even recommendations according to your preferences.
Friends require loyalty, but not constant attention. The platform provided by social media can have an unhealthy effect on your friends who are both boring and attention starved. Avoid their perpetually uninteresting updates by unfollowing them. Simply click the down arrow at the top right of any of their posts and click unfollow. Never waste time on their over-indulgent inner-dialogue again.
You can take surveys that affect the results in your News Feed. Just click the down arrow on (the top right of) any post that appears in your feed, and click “Make News Feed Better.”
Many times, your friends get it in their heads that 125 pixels is the perfect width for their newest photo post. You squint with a mighty effort and still can’t figure out what you’re looking at. Use this Chrome extension to enable a hover zoom on all Facebook photos.
The Wall Machine is a deliciously evil app that allows you to create wall conversations that never happened. You can have your ex apologize for changing her status to “It’s complicated,” or just post a sacrilegious conversation between Jesus and Muhammad. Troll wisely, my friends.
Sometimes you just know you’re going to want to show someone a video you saw on Facebook later. But it’s just such a pain to go back through your newsfeed and find it. Cut out the middlemen and download the videos by copying and pasting the url onto this page.
A picture may be worth a thousand words, but a 5 second looping gif of the same pic? That’s worth at least another 9,000. Use giphy.com to soup up your statuses.
Ever wonder what a comprehensive view of all a friend’s likes might look like? Wonder no more. Enter the url: https://www.facebook.com/[Facebook Username]/likes in your browser, and replace the text “Facebook Username” with the name of the target of your voyeurism.
Facebook can be tiresome, but let’s not forget why it got a billion plus users in the first place. It’s a stellar achievement in data sharing and social networking. See what you can learn with these 10 tricks.
