We’re all spending a lot of time on Facebook which can be very stressful. If you don’t want to log off completely for whatever reasons, there are a variety of extensions to help you lower some of the anxiety attached to using the platform. Facebook Demetricator removes the numbers game in hopes to lower your stress around checking social media.
This browser add on will remove the numbers from Facebook. No longer will you see how many people like something how many new notifications you have, instead it will just be “people liked this, it was shared, there are notifications”. Dropping the numbers is hoped to make things less urgent and allow users a more leisurely experience.
This doesn’t block any content, you see all the same things, you just don’t get the numbers for them. So it doesn’t matter if a million people liked it our just one, there’s no additional pressure on you to read it as important. You can just read if you are personally interested. This extension is free.
