Sometimes a Facebook user just wants to see the information important to them. I found a fix that lets you tweak your pages back to the way you like them.
Note: this info is current as of 11/15/2011.
So if all you want to see on Facebook is Status Updates, no videos, no games, no any-other-nonsense, then this is a good way to do it. It works only with Google Chrome. I haven't tried any fixes for other browsers, so I don't know what's available.
You have to install Google Chrome browser on your computer. If you haven't done that, get it here.
Once you have that up and running, you can go to the Google Chrome Store here: chrome.google.com/webstore
Ok here we go. First, do a search for "Minimalist for Facebook"
Be sure to click the "Refresh Facebook to Apply" link.
And that's it. You should only see the things you want to see on Facebook. I've hidden mostly everything, so I only see "status updates" on my page now.
Hope that helps.
