Como desativar tudo o que você odeia no Facebook

How to turn off everything you hate about Facebook

O Facebook não é das redes sociais mais adoradas. Seja pela falta de privacidade ou pelo “controle” do news feed, a gente fala muito mal do site de Mark Zuckerberg.

É fato que temos razão em reclamar em algumas coisas, mas também não podemos esquecer que podemos evitar muito do conteúdo desnecessário que rola por lá. O Daily Dot fez um guia de como desativar tudo de mais chato que rola no Facebook — e nós vamos reproduzir aqui, pois todo mundo deveria saber como desativar as configurações a seguir. 

 

Notificações de jogos

 

Uma das principais reclamações relacionadas ao Facebook são as notificações de joguinhos. “Fulano te convidou pra jogar Dragon City”. Sim, dá nos nervos de qualquer um. Mas calma: dá pra você bloquear isso. E não é difícil.

Você deve ir em “configurações” e depois em “bloqueio”. Lá, você pode bloquear convites de pessoas ou de aplicativos específicos. É o fim das notificações desnecessárias \o/

 

Aniversários

Quer parar de receber notificações sobre o aniversário de fulano? É só desativar o calendário de aniversários e pronto. Pra isso, você deve ir em “configurações”, depois em “notificações” e desativar a parte de aniversários. Nessas configurações, você também pode deixar de receber notificações de grupos, amigos e tudo mais. Viva o silêncio no Facebook!

 

Deixar de seguir

Essa aqui eu uso muito. Você tem um amigo que fala muita besteira no Facebook, mas não tem coragem de bloqueá-lo ou algo do tipo. A melhor opção com certeza é deixar de seguir a pessoa. E essa é bem fácil: é só ir em qualquer publicação da pessoa ou seu perfil e clicar em “deixar de seguir”.

 

 

Bloqueando no chat

Lembra quando você bloqueava o amiguinho no MSN Messenger? Bem, dá pra fazer parecido no chat do Facebook.

Você deve clicar no botãozinho de engrenagem que fica no canto direito inferior, no chat, e clicar em “configurações avançadas”. Ali, você pode escolher entre bloquear quem você quiser ou ficar visível somente para algumas pessoas — além, é claro, de poder desativar o bate papo.

 

Fotos com marcações

Essa também todo mundo já pode ter enfrentado um dia. Você tá lá, todo pimpão no seu Facebook, olhando a timeline, quando recebe uma notificação: “Fulano te marcou em tal foto”. Pois é. Mas relaxa: é possível analisar a marcação e retirá-la, se quiser. É só ir em “configurações”, depois em “privacidade” e ativar ou desativar a análise.

(Cr)app invites

Invitations to install apps or join games are the number one most frustrating feature of Facebook. Depending on how addicted your friends have become to the time-sucking titles on the site, you could be bombarded with invites on a daily basis, and most apps make it way too easy to spam an entire friends list with annoying alerts. It’s time to put an end to this nightmare.

Open your Settings screen on the Facebook Web client and click on the “Blocking” tab on the left sidebar. Under the heading “Block App Invites,” type in the name or names of anyone on your friends list who needs their app invite privileges revoked. You may also laugh maniacally while doing this, though that is entirely optional.

You can use this same page to block specific apps from contacting you entirely (goodbye forever, Mafia Wars!), and even prevent your friends from sending you event invitations, though those are typically far less frequent than the app invites we all know and loathe.

Happy birthday to no one!

It’s your birthday? That’s great! Nobody cares. OK, OK that’s not true. There are probably a few people on everyone’s friends list who actually care about that person growing one year older, but those folks likely already knew about the special day without being reminded of it. Unfortunately, the majority of Facebook users seeing each birthday alert probably couldn’t care less, and for those people, it’s easy to silence the unnecessary birthday cheer.

Once in the Settings menu, click on the “Notifications” tab. Next to “Birthdays,” click the Edit button and then click “Off.” Now go blow out your candles.

While on the Notifications page, you can also silence any annoying group notifications you might be getting, change how often Facebook sends you emails, and silence the cringeworthy alert sound that has undoubtedly blasted your ears a time or two… or two thousand.

Kill the chit-chat

The chat feature on Facebook is fantastically convenient, but it’s also an open invitation for your most annoying acquaintances to pop in for a quick word. There’s nothing worse than seeing that message pop up and knowing that the other person knows you’re ignoring them. Avoid these awkward moments with a simple tweak.

In the main chat list on the right side of the page, click the gear icon in the upper right hand corner and select “Advanced Settings.” Now you have the option of either turning chat off completely, turning it on for just a few friends, or only blocking specific users from seeing that you’re online. Whichever option you choose, you can now feel safe logging onto Facebook without fear of facing an uncomfortable chat request.

Or… just kill the read receipt

If you don’t want to go through the hassle of entering names or groups of people who you don’t want to chat with, you could at least turn off the read receipt so they don’t know you saw their message. Well Facebook provides no in-app way to do this (surprise!) but there are a number ofextensions you can easily install that get rid of that horrid “Seen” prompt altogether.

Unfollow is your friend

You hopeflly know this by now, but: You can always unfollow someone. If the political updates, look-at-me calls for attention, or Vaguebooking ever gets too much for you, all you have to do is find the little drop-down icon in the right-hand corner of someone’s status update…

And then it’s done. Facebook will ask you some questions about why you did this. Feel free to engage with the social network or not. (FYI, it will also ask, in this series of questions, if you want to tell the person you unfollow why you did so. I suggest you not do that!)

The impossible dream: A true News Feed

We all know that the News Feed is Facebook’s playground, that what we see is very determined by the social network. If you didn’t know that, then I’m sorry to spoil the illustion for you. But it’s all very forumlaic, so to switch things up, you have a few options. Option one is killing the thing entirely; here’s an extension that shows you your Facebook, without the News Feed. For anyone who feels like the News Feed is annoying or distracting them from actually using Facebook, it’s a great solution.

There’s also option two, which lets you view Facebook not by what it determines to be the most interesting things for you on the News Feed, but by the most recent. You’re not seeing a true chronological representation of the News Feed, but it’s as close as you’ll ever get.

Detagging

Sick of being tagged in random updates or horrible photos? This one is (relatively) easy. Head to your privacy settings, then “Timeline and Tagging.” When it asks if you want to review posts you’re tagged in before they show up, make sure that is “on.”

The last straw

If all of this isn’t enough for you, if Facebook is still driving you crazy, then try an extension like SocialFixer. This tool lets you customize Facebook (in your browser, that is) to the Nth degree; you can even change the color scheme if you want. But it has options that also let you get rid of Timeline and bring back your old profile.

  1. I once joined Facebook and then forgot my username and password. Gave them my email got my username tried to log in… a no go. So got a new password then tried to login and they needed my mobile phone. A no go, having no mobile phone. So I sit in my email and see all my friends wander by facebooking me and realize I’m locked out of my own misery…. 😉 haha

    thanks for post 🙂
