block facebook ads

You can block all the Facebook ads and reskin the site into a more simplistic interface (similar to Twitter really) by installing a third party browser extension called Facebook Neue. Along with blocking the sites ads, it moves the UI into a two column layout, hides a few of the sidebar options, removes application links and language settings, and even rounds image avatars, creating a more simplified and less busy interface for the popular social networking site.

The Facebook Neue extension is available for Safari 5 and Chrome, you can download it here.

You might want to check out the Facebook desktop notifier too, it brings Facebook messages and activity to your Mac desktop through Growl notifications.

    but we shouldn’t panic as i’m sure the tie-up with myspace will increase the revenue potential of display ads that we all love right?

    you can tell this was written by a teenager by the excessive use of curse words for no apparent reason. i like the plugin otherwise.
