How can I disable “People you may know” box on Facebook?
Regarding: How can I disable “People you may know” box on Facebook?
It's interesting that when many many people complain about something annoying on Facebook they tend to ignore us instead of fixing the problem. I befriended my young Granddaughters and now I have a never ending list of their kiddie friends to wade through. That's dam sadistic, come on Facebook have a heart.
“People you may know” bar is a feature of Facebook used for those who are short on friends.Facebook has this feature to make people friends with others they might know about.
"For those who are short on friends" ???
I have 2904 friends, and I still get a "people you may know" suggestions each freaking day.
It sometimes shows up and sometimes not.It would be better for us to ignore it.
If you use Adblock and Firefox or chrome as your browser,then the below link could be helpful for you -
FB Purity Firefox addon is also good -
Simple instruction (Firefox only) -
There's also a chrome app for it -
follow this =====>
I am also a fan of "social fixer". You should be able to tweak that and all kinds of other options that you might find annoying :)
I am using chrome with an extension named "Social Fixer".
It allows me to customize almost all the properties of Facebook UI.
You can disable elements, add some extra stuffs, clean up the UI, add themes etc. and lots more..
I have been using it and so far everything is really good.
It does not annoy once you set it up, so that's also a plus factor.
Browser Support: Google Chrome, FF, Safari, Opera. IE is not supported.
Also, Greasemonkey Script is available too.
Thanks guys , Problem Solved ... by Adblock..
That is a facebook component that is embedded into the site's platform but can be blocked if you use adblock just as Luka commented. follow the link and click the adblock button, then ckick hide ad from this page and then choose what you want to block...note that it has a blue covering.
That's FB feature and its functionality to show up more friends...
If you use adblock ( https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/gighmmpiobklfepjocnamgkkbiglidom )
you can click the adblock button -> hide ad on this page -> select what you want to hide(there is a blue wrapper around it) :)
Click on arrow right side of Home. From drop down menu click on account settings. Cross to left side of page and click on Notifications, scroll down menu and click on "f other updates from facebook", uncheck People you may know on facebook and your done, just remember to save changes.
You can makeuseof adblock a chrome and firefox extension.
It's a FB feature that cannot be disabled casually. It's embedded into their design. Though you can look for scripts to hide it.
