On the eat your own arm diet.
why does Facebook keep suggesting this woman-hating shite to me?

wut?

I'm seeing a lot of this shit as well. Lots of 'she cheated on her boyfriend... what happens next will blow your mind!'

My favourite so far is 'what does your lipstick tip shape reveal about your personality?' grin

I also get posts showing back fat in a lump

StealthPolarBear Thu 19-Nov-15 18:24:19

In fact it's described as "ugly back fat". I feel like replying "I think my back fat is quite pretty"

My back fat is on my back, and seeing as I can't see it I don't give a flying monkey fart if it's ugly or gorgeous grin

It's fine in casual clothing but you don't want to see me in my underpants.

D'you mean the awful suggested adverts/sites? I use the AdBlocker extension (for Firefox, but you can have it for other browsers AFAIK). It takes seconds to install and I've never seen one of those awful things since.

Local woman looks 300 years younger using this 5p product!

I keep getting one about 'she wanted her baby to be beautiful so she did this to her face!' With pic of baby with painted on Nike swoosh eyebrows.
Wtf is that about?

StealthPolarBear Sat 21-Nov-15 10:21:36

Yes they're the ones. May have to investigate adblocker

StrawberryTeaLeaf Sat 21-Nov-15 10:47:50

That one's kind of hypnotic Yak. Hard to look away grin

Floppityflop Sat 21-Nov-15 10:49:42

I get "Try this one tip to get rid of belly fat" or "Never eat this food to get rid of belly fat".

how does ad blocker work? I tried it and now get more than ever but I'm a bit crap with anything like that

GruntledOne Sat 21-Nov-15 11:26:04

Those ads which say things like "what happened next will blow your mind" are seriously irritating. I got hooked once only to discover that "what happened next" is utterly pedestrian and boring. Surely no-one gets taken in after the first time, so why do they bother?

Oops! I called it the wrong name - the one I use is Adblock Plus (link). You click to install it, and are asked if you want to install it when it's finishing downloading (should take seconds). Click 'install' and you're done. Some of the extensions say you don't have to restart Firefox for it to work, but I don't think that's always true!

I also have YouTube Unblocker (link) which unblocks videos when they won't play on Facebook, and unlocks VEVO videos which won't play because you're not in the USA, etc. The blurb is in German but that's what Google Translate is for grin

**I should have added, because of a previous Firefox update, the Adblocker extension stopped working, so maybe that's why it didn't work for you ssd.
