How to clean your Facebook

In order to get rid of intrusive ads and selective news stories being forced on you there are a few simple steps to take. 
Its actually quite easy to make Facebook tolerable to use again and requires only a few minutes of your time.

Step 1
Choose which browser you normally use to access the internet. The recommendation is Chrome since its the most widely adopted and because its made by Google it works the best with all their various free offerings. 

Step 2
Download and install Adblock Plus

Step 3
Download and install Facebook Purity

This app allows you to customize what you want to see from Facebook when you log in. It's extremely valuable if you're tired of seeing selective 'news' items being forced on you in the form of artificial trends. 
Tip: select various story types and unclick everything and then go back through and decide what you actually want to see. 

And that's it! 

You can now use Facebook again and if they want to farm everyone's information so that they can experiment on them (http://goo.gl/SQ5ixW)…well they won't be doing it with you. 🙂
