Chrome extension will hide all pictures of babies on your Facebook

John Moe Aug 6, 2012

Let’s say you like using Facebook, but you’re also a horrible, horrible stone-hearted monster who doesn’t like looking at pictures of babies. I mean, whatever, it’s your lonely slog through life, who am I to judge? Well, now help is on the way for you, miserable wretch. A Chrome extension will eliminate all pictures of babies on your Facebook feed and replace them with pictures of dogs or kittens or walruses or adult people or computers. Because maybe you love computers more than you love people and maybe you should marry a computer instead of liking babies because that will better reflect the cold machine that you’ve become.
The app is said to be easy to install and uninstall, meaning that in all likelihood the app doesn’t actually collect and hide ACTUAL BABIES, it merely conceals their photographs for certain people.
