Facebook is the most popular social networking site that helps to easily connect with your friends and family. With the continuous flow of news stream you can see latest updates from your Facebook friends. Ever since Facebook introduced “Suggested Posts”, you can see some sponsored posts also in your news feed.
The problem with these “Suggested Posts” is they are really annoying and in most of the cases they are less or no way related to your interests. There is no option available to disable suggested posts in Facebook. The only way you can do that is by using a Google Chrome Extension or Firefox add-on.

No need of restarting your Chrome Browser but make sure Facebook is not already opened in a tab. When I checked my Facebook news feed, I noticed that this extension is hiding annoying sponsored posts and suggested events.
This Chrome extension just adds “display: none” property to suggested posts class in CSS. Its just a simple way to hide any HTML element on a webpage. So its reliable to some extent only and wont work if the HTML class of suggested posts is changed. There is a lot of room to improve this extension and many options like “Hide Suggested Posts for some certain time period” or “Remove suggested posts only in office working hours” etc.
