How to stop "suggested post" on Facebook

Hi

How do I make this entry in Adguard user filterlist, any suggestions?

This is the only place that Adblock is better than Adguard, from my point of view :)

Thanks

And what Facebook URL (country?) are you using?

I don't see these posts on the US English Facebook.

Can you please try enabling the Schacks Adblock Plus liste filter and see if it helps?

That's pretty the same as using filters below in Adguard:

English filter
Schacks Adblock Plus liste
Spyware filter



Schacks Adblock Plus liste - has some filters for facebook:
Code:
facebook.com##.ego_section
facebook.com##.ego_unit_container
Could you please check these in your user filter?

No, the postings are still there :-(

It's really weird, if I enable Adblock in Safari, all the suggested and sponsored posting disappear

Ok, let's try blocking it remotely:)

I need to see the page code with these suggested posts.

So let's do the following:
1. Open facebook and find this suggested post
2. Right click the suggested post and select "Inspect Object"
3. You'll see the page code (selected element in the page code will be highlighted).

Make a screenshot of this code.

That's not about suggestions. It is "Suggested post", something like promoted post I think

Pretty sure the code above is what is needed but i could be wrong.

I do know that i tried the ego codes you posted and they did well nothing in my case because i wanted all the crap removed which in included suggested posts, pages you may like and other things which normally appeared after you clicked like or something. I'll try disabling adguard and see if i can make one appear. I have a dozen subscriptions running.


Edit:
Here is a post from adblock: https://adblockplus.org/blog/the-future-of-facebook-ads-and-how-adblock-plus-will-deal-with-them they since did the other site i posted with all the code.

I have been trying to get the code to show but failed dunno why, swer i saw it the other day.
