Block Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and other crap bundles using AdBlockPlus!

Sat, 2012-07-21 20:40

If you had a look at my previous posts, you will see that most of my posts are either about Drupal or Firefox. This post is not going to be an exception!
Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and other social media crap are now popular and you can see it everywhere on the Internet. Do you seriously need these buttons to share their content ? Do you need to have a like button on every page you open ? Seriously ?

I was using Adblock Plus to block advertisements but it was not blocking these buttons.

So I decided to make my own ad blocking filter. This is not a top-notch filter list like EasyList or Fan Boy's list, but it solves my problem.

I have been using it for several weeks now.. It works really nice, and it has blocked ~10,000 facebook and twitter crap(facebook share boxes, like buttons, tweet this buttons, follow me buttons, etc).

To add this filter, in Firefox, go to Tools > AdBlock Plus > Filter preferences. Then, click on add subscription button and clock on Add a different subscription, as you can see in the picture below.

Then, in the dialog box, Enter "Ayesh's list" (or whatever the name you want) as the title, and http://static.ayesh.me/ff/abp/adblock_plus_not_social_filters.txt as the URL.


Click Add subscription and you are ready to the battle with crap bundles!

If you find it useful, please leave a comment and let me know. If you have additional rules, just leave a comment and I will try to include it in the filters.
Adblock Plus will attempt to update filters time to time. So, you will get updates with new filters automatically! Enjoy!

Just because a casino night party is geared towards family doesn't mean organizers can not have
a cash bar in a section of the casino event venue just for adults.

If you make it to the end of the hallway, you will be

Casinos in an area would also increase employment to its people.

An interesting discussion is worth comment. I do believe that you should write more on this subject, it may not be a taboo matter but usually people don't talk about
these topics. To the next! Cheers!!

I have been browsing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never ffound any interesting article like yours.
It iss pretty worth enoufh for me. Personally, if all
site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the
web will be much more useful than ever before.

When I originally commented I seem to have clicked on the

this blog loads a lot faster then most. Can you recommend a good internet hosting provider at a reasonable price?
Thanks a lot, I appreciate it!

Hi there, I do believe your website could possibly be having
browser compatibility problems. When I look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine however when opening in I.E., it has some overlapping issues.
I simply wanted to provide you with a quick heads up! Besides that, excellent site!

I was wondering if you ever thought of changing
the layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve
got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people
could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text
for only having 1 or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?

Link exchange is nothing else however it is simply placing the other person's webpage link on your page at proper place and other person will
also do similar in favor of you.
