The every moment changing in the most popular social network Facebook lead to much annoyance among its users. The recent change was the Timeline revamp is the last in a series of tweaks to the social networking service, some were good, some were bad and some were plain ugly.
Have you liked all these changes yet? Personally I am irritated with all these changes. Does these highlighted news style bother you when you miss out on gossip?
Well we have recognized five older Facebook features and functions that we have used to enjoy with, and also found some expansions for Google’s Chrome and Mozilla’s Firefox browsers that fetched them back.
We are aware of it that we can’t stop progress in protracted term (that we actually don’t want to), but for the sake of some short-term peace of mind, we are going alter with some tweaks to go with our preferences.
Comment us below to highlighting the Facebook features that have stuck up your mind and we will try to find some options to get them fixed.
1. Hide the News Ticker and Restore Your News Feed with Facebook Classic
Facebook now displays a constantly updated news “ticker” right above the chat bar which is extremely irritating for many including me. To get toggle you can take help from Facebook classic which reverts your News Feed to chronological order.
2. For Firefox: Hide the News Ticker with Facebook Ticker Removal
This add-on for Firefox gets rid of the ticker, whether you have the right-hand side chat window open or not
3. Hide Facebook Questions and Polls with Kill Facebook Questions
Facebook introduced its “Questions” service as a way for users to get more from their social circleand to compete with up-and-coming questions services. If however, you don’t give a flying hoot to it then you can vanish such annoyances from your stream with this handy extension.
4. For Firefox: Hide Facebook Questions with F.B. Purity
Hiding Facebook Questions from your news stream is one of the tick-box options found in the comprehensive “F.B. Purity” add-on.
5. View Photos the Old Way with Revert FB Photo Viewer
Facebook fancied up the way photos display with a new “theater” style, which makes each image a pop-up.
What was wrong with the old scroll-through-an-album method, we don’t know. But we do know a way to revert back. This extension will get back the “previous/next” navigation, and nix the sloooow-loading windows.
6. For Firefox: View Photos the Old Way with Facebook Photo Theater Killer
This script works with Firefox for anyone who has Greasemonkey installed. It reverts your Facebook back to the old way of photo viewing, sans pop-ups.
7. See the Old Version of Chat with Get Back Old Facebook Chat
Dear Facebook, what was wrong with old chat? Was it just too easy to see which of your friends was online? Too easy to ping someone a quick “hi?”
If you preferred the old way, this extension will disable the ticker and restore your Facebook chat to the little window on the bottom right of your screen.
8. For Firefox: Show Only Online Friends in Chat with Tidy Facebook Chat
This Firefox option won’t get you back the old version of Chat, but it will hide all your offline friends, showing only those available, so it at least addresses one of new Chat’s UI issues.
9. Get the Comment Button Back with Facebook Comment Fixer
How many times have you posted a half-finished comment by pressing “Enter” too soon? Yeah, us too.
Call us old-fashioned, but when we’re publicly commenting on content, we like to be sure before we hit send. Having to press Shift+Enter to create a line break is just too much harassing.
This extension restores the “Comment” button, and maps “Enter” to add a new line. You can be sure you won’t post any witticisms until they read exactly as you intended.
10. For Firefox: Get the Comment Button Back with F.B. Purity
For Firefox users, the easiest alternative is F.B. Purity. One of the many features this add-on offers is the return of the “Comment” button.
11. What Bugs You?
