Facebook and Google Chrome users who are tiring of political posts as Election Day approaches now have two post-blocking candidates to choose from, as Social Fixer, an extension for Firefox, Chrome, Safari, and Opera, was joined by Chrome-only Noppl.
Once users install the plugin, they can enter words they wish to block, with the field already pre-populated with “Romney, Paul Ryan, Obama, Biden, Election.”
I’m not against politics. I just don’t want to be bombarded with political posts while on Facebook, and it turns out other people don’t, either.
Social Fixer and Noppl can both be used to block other keywords and subjects besides politics.
Readers: Are you fed up with all of the political talk? Would you consider trying out one of these browser extensions?
