With more than a billion users, Facebook has become the social network of choice. But it’s also a time-consuming one. Fortunately, there are browser extensions that will help you save time and better focus on managing your community.
A not always pleasant interface
With the multiplication of features, Facebook keeps changing its user interface. Most of the time, these graphical evolutions consist in simplifying the access to the various tools. However, sometimes they can be confusing for the user.
To facilitate the work of Community Managers and make the interface simpler and more intuitive, there is the Social Fixer plugin. Available for most browsers except Internet Explorer, this tool will allow you to customize Facebook but also to add a few additional features very useful. As you will see, the possibilities of modifications are numerous.
Examples of use
Among other things, you can force Facebook to display only the most recent information about your contacts, change the font size, automatically preview photos, remove ads, hide certain blocks and even find out who has decided to delete you from their friends list.
Installation and settings of Social Fixer
The first time you use Social Fixer, the configuration wizard will offer you different settings. Select Minimalist settings. Once the installation is complete, by clicking on the Social Fixer icon at the top of the page, you will be able to change the appearance of the Facebook site and also configure the display filters. This function is particularly useful for hiding your contacts’ posts according to the topics they cover. For example, if you are allergic to fishing, you can simply enter the words related to this discipline to automatically remove all messages related to this hobby. Magic, isn’t it? Social Fixer is packed with an impressive array of options. It’s the ideal tool to create a simple and intuitive interface and exploit all the richness of Facebook.
