Hide app updates, notification, news feeds from Facebook wall with Fluff Busting Purity

Yesterday, I wrote about FFixer, a Greasemonkey script that greatly enhances Facebook (my favorite is full image pop-up on mouse hover; saves a lot of time). Here is another indispensible Greasemonkey script – this one cleans up your Facebook wall from junk updates.

The script called Fluff Busting Purity cleans up your Facebook wall by removing all idiotic messages and application notifications, leaving behind just the standard Facebook apps such as status updates, wall posts, links, notes, photos, etc. Fluff Busting Purity lets you hide messages like "Became a friend of", "Joined a group", "Became a fan of", "Is attending event" etc that floods your Facebook wall.

After you install the script (remember, Greasemonkey scripts also works Opera, Safari and Chrome, apart from Firefox), a barely noticeable line appears on top of your profile page.


Here you will find links to hide app notifications and other extra elements from your wall. There’s also a link to the script’s configuration options.


These options enable you to choose exactly which type of updates you don’t want to see on your Facebook profile. Blockable updates include the following types:

  • Became a Fan Of"
  • "Joined a Group"
  • "Became a Friend of"
  • "Is Attending an event"
  • "Attended an Event"
  • "Commented on/Likes Status"
  • "Tagged in/Likes/Commented on Photo"
  • "Tagged in Album"
  • "Commented on/Likes Album"
  • "Commented on/Likes Link"
  • "Wall Comments"
  • "Group Wall Comments"
  • "Liked" (Became a fan of)
  • "Page Wall Comments"
  • "Posted an Event"
  • "Attending an event"
  • "Attended an event"
  • "Updated profile info"
  • "Changed profile pic"
  • "Changed relationship status"

Fluff Busting Purity lets you create app whitelist to allow certain Facebook applications, the ones you use, to appear on your profile while hiding others that spam your wall. It also lets you define filters to hide specific text from your wall. Other options include hiding the Suggestions box, the Sponsored box or the Get Connected box that appears on the right of your profile page.

Fluff Busting Purity works fine but still leaves a lot to be desired. If you are looking for more firepower, checkout Better Facebook.

How to Record CPU and Memory Usage Over Time in Windows?

Whenever the computer is lagging or some application is taking too long to respond, we usually fire up task manager and look under the Performance tab or under Processes to check on processor utilization or the amount of free memory available. The task manager is ideal for real-time analysis of CPU and memory utilization. It even displays a short history of CPU utilization in the form of a graph. You get a small time-window, about 30 seconds or so, depending on how large the viewing area is.

How to Schedule Changes to Your Facebook Page Cover Photo

Facebook’s current layout, the so called Timeline, features a prominent, large cover photo that some people are using in a lot of different creative ways. Timeline is also available for Facebook Pages that people can use to promote their website or business or event. Although you can change the cover photo as often as you like, it’s meant to be static – something which you design and leave it for at least a few weeks or months like a redesigned website. However, there are times when you may want to change the cover photo frequently and periodically to match event dates or some special promotion that you are running or plan to run. So, here is how you can do that.
