If you feel that your Facebook feed is getting more and more cluttered with the same stuff, maybe it’s time for a change. One tool that you could use for that is Detox, a new browser extension which basically changes your content sources.


As the name suggests, this new tool ‘detoxifies’ your Facebook feed and surface more interesting content from such soruces as Hacker News, Designer News, Product Hunt, Dribbble and many others. Detox is available as an extension for the following browsers – ChromeFirefox and Safari.

What’s really cool is that you can easily turn it on and off, so you can do so whenever you want to switch between the two Facebook. Detox also comes with an Auto Activation mode which allows you to mark the days, as well as  the start and end time for when Detox should auto-activate. So, for example, if you’re at work, you can set up Detox to surface content during that time frame.

It’s also possible to randomize feeds and posts, so that you will see a different feed every time you open, thus covering a wider range of stories. The downside is that you have to use from a preset list of websites, belonging to the following categories – design, development, startup, inspiration, news, marketing.

But this is just the first version of Detox, and there’s also a way for you to send feedback, so go ahead and give it a try and let the developers know what other features you’d want to be included. I for one would love to be able to input whatever websites I like, that would be something that would really help with my work.
