Remove Politics from Facebook

An update: A while back I posted a workaround for setting up keywords in unbaby.me to remove politics from Facebook. Unbaby.me’s original idea was to limit exposure to Facebook’s myriad Anne Geddes wannabees a shade during our social media forays.



I don’t know if it’s my fault or not, but after I made that post, the makers of unbaby.me recently released the Chrome extension Unpolitic.me, which already has the most-common political keywords factored in.

You should install it, and then have fun on Facebook like you originally planned on doing when you created your account in the first place.

Facebook Charging to DM Users You Don’t Know

Facebook charging for DMs

I got this prompt from Facebook today when trying to DM a contest winner for PreSonus on Facebook. The winner and I are not friends on Facebook, which means a message would generally go to their “Other” box, where messages are often overlooked.

It costs a buck to prioritize your message so that it goes to the regular in-box. Interesting.

What are your thoughts on this? I’m not sure if I like it or not. I mean, no one ever checks their FB “Other” Box. Did you know you even had one?)
