A great selection of Google Chrome extensions developed not only for social media marketers and online marketers but also for people who have nothing to do with this sphere. With help of these extensions your social networks experience will be nice, while your dissatisfaction caused by lack of these or that options will be replaced with pleasure and euphoria :).

Facebook extensions

1. Facebook AdBlock. Removes ads from the right edge of the page as well as advertising publications in your newsfeed.

2. Facebook Chat Pop-Outs. Allows to open a chat in a separate pop-up window. What are the advantages? You can resize this window, it’s much easier to upload files and there is a message history search option. To make this extension work, open a chat a press the arrow button.

And this is what happens when you use this extension and open a chat in a new window:

3. Facebook Unseen. It’s an app, not an extension, but I decided to put it in this list. This app allows to read new messages without marking them as read.

Oh, look! A new message!
Oh, look! A new message!

Then I launch Facebook Unseen and read a new message:

My friend doesn’t know I’ve already read her message

4. Status Snapper. It makes a screenshot of a chosen post and hides all the names and profile pictures. If it doesn’t hide all the names from the first try (sometimes it happens if a post is too long), then just click Cancel and then Snap again.
