Fury as Facebook erases Social Fixer's page (with 340,000 fans) without explanation
Social Fixer, formerly known as Better Facebook, is a tool that over half a million Facebook members use to enhance the look, feel and functionality of the world's most popular social network.
The tool, available as a free download for a variety of popular web browsers, lets you configure a number of aspects of figure.
For instance, Social Fixer can offer tabbed news feeds, hiding posts you have already read, enlarging pictures just by hovering over them, highlighting new comments and much much more. [Screenshot]
Sure, developer Matt Kruse would appreciate it if people who found the add-on useful supported him by sending through a PayPal donation or clicking on one of the Google Ads on his website, but you get the feeling that Social Fixer is a labour of love rather than anything approaching a commercial venture.
But, for reasons unexplained, Facebook has wiped out four years of Kruse's work on Social Fixer by deleting the tool's Facebook page. [Screenshot]
