F.B. Purity cleans the application spam and other annoying messages off your facebook homepage. It adds a small information bar at the top of your facebook homepage / news feed. It tells you how many application messages its hidden and also how many other "extra" message types (which you can specify in the options screen) its hidden. The options screen is accessible by clicking the F.B. Purity link in the previously mentioned information bar.
Heres a list of the different message types you can hide:
Facebook Questions (and answers), Became friends with, Liked page (became a fan), Joined a group, Attending an event, Attended an event, Created an event, Changed location (FB Places), Updated profile, Changed profile picture, Updated Cover Photo, Changed relationship, Commented on or likes status, Uploaded photo, Tagged in, likes or commented on photo, Tagged in, likes or commented on album, Uploaded video, Tagged in video, Posted a link, Commented on or likes link, Posted a note, Tagged in note, Commented on wall, Commented on group wall, Commented on page wall, wrote on Timeline, Commented on Event wall, Hide Fan Page Updates, Hide Shared Photos, Hide Shared Links, Hide "Read an Article" / "Frictionless Sharing" type posts, Commented on "This", Liked "This"
You can also hide any of the links in the right hand column, such as: Events, Games and App Requests, Recommended Pages, Suggested Groups, People You May Know / Find More Friends, Get Connected, Pokes, Friend Requests, Birthdays, Chat, the News Ticker bar, Trending Topics / Trending Hashtags
* Force facebook to sort newsfeed by "most recent"

* Hide all game and application messages, including "Games your friends are playing" and "Games you may like". It also gives you the option to whitelist application messages that you do want to see in your newsfeed, so the application spam filter wont hide them.
* Add an easily accesible Block Application ("BA") link to every application message, so you can easily block applications from your newstream and from getting your personal data.
* The "BA" (Block Application) link now lets you block multiple applications with a single click. Theres also an option (Under the More Options heading), that lets you turn off the game / application message filtering if you want to see all the game and app stories.
