What feature ideas do you have for Social Fixer?

Prevent Facebook from "grouping" news feed items by subjects/keywords

Facebook defaults to "grouping" news feed items based (I assume) on keywords common to them (such as 'Thanksgiving' or 'Christmas'). It would be great if Social Fixer had an option to undo Facebook's clustering of posts in that way, and restore them to their normal place in the chronological order.

    This is something that has been attempted in the past with limited success. It is always we are looking for, but there doesn’t seem to be a way of doing it without causing many more issue.

    Keeping as “under review” as you never know what the future holds.

        I want to see all postings in chronological order please and not grouped into certain friends and family.

        Yes please - desperately need this, as facebook's grouping is HORRIBLE - and I can't mark individual posts in the group as read. :(

        Apparently this is post type=364 (undefined)
        Looking at the html, I think you could break up the grouping into the individual posts. This would need to happen before the user's filters get a chance to move them to tabs or do whatever the filter is set to do on the individual posts.
