Sick of reading about politics all the time? Wouldn’t blame you if you were…2016 scarred us all. So to save friendships and salvage families, some brilliant individuals have made free politics filters for Facebook and your browsers. This is also a good method if you have an unhealthy political news addiction that’s sucking you into an endless void of frustration with humanity…I’m fine
If you’re a Google Chrome user, you can download an extension called Remove All Politics From Facebook – plain and simple. This will filter out certain keywords and hide them from your feed, such as He Who Must Not Be Named. It doesn’t recognize pictures though, so a few memes might still leak through (a pro for addicts who can’t just quit cold turkey).
For those who don’t use Chrome, there’s another add-on called Social fixer. This app actually lets you pick what keywords you want to filter out from your browser. This is not only great for political news, but show spoilers as well! Now all you have to worry about is that friend you’re going to have to avoid until you catch up on the latest Game of Thrones episode…which, to be honest, you probably should have just put your life on hold to watch like everyone else.
