Description

Hide distractions on websites such as YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Reddit, LinkedIn, Gmail and take back control of your attention!

While we acknowledge the distracting and engrossing nature of these sites, completely blocking them is not always feasible due to the valuable content they offer.

This Safari extension allows you to selectively hide attention-grabbing components on each site. For instance, on YouTube, you have the option to conceal recommended videos, shorts, comments, and more. Similarly, on Facebook and Instagram, you can hide the feed, reels, stories, and other elements. The same goes for each supported site.

Furthermore, SocialFocus offers an array of supplementary features, including Startup Settings, Import / Export and more.

Users who want to support the development of the project can additionally subscribe to the PRO version. The PRO version will give access to some additional features that are not available in the standard version, such as hotkey configuration, settings synchronization and some others.

NOTE: This extension does NOT work with the apps, it works only for websites while using the Safari browser.

Good but no one seems to be able to crack FaceBook

I was so happy the developer released this, as I have been using his other app, Untrap and it is a blessing.

App seems to work well so far for most things, but unfortunately FaceBook still manages to break through with its algorythim pumping random stuff to my main feed. Been searching for an app that can defeat FaceBook for a long time now. If you ever manage to pull it off, I'll give 5 stars and go pro.

Could you please send an email to swifterapps@gmail.com to provide clarification on which type of content remains visible in the feed? 

I've noticed that options such as 'Hide Sponsored Posts,' 'Hide People You May Know,' and so on, are working from my end and hiding this content. Consequently, I'm having difficulty discerning what content is still visible on your end. Your assistance in clarifying this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Works great, needs syncing/account management

This app is great, thank you. The ability to optionally sync between my devices and between Safari profiles would be very useful. Currently I need to manually configure 4 devices * 4 Safari profiles * 6 websites = 96 config menus to fill out. The recent update added more options while breaking previously set configurations. Expecting users to do this once, let alone after each non-backwards compatible update, is unreasonable.

Edit: The PRO subscription is essentially required if you use Safari profiles, unless you need want configure literally thousands of menu options. Also, "Hide Subreddit Feed" now hides reddit comments as well on macOS Safari.

Developer Response ,

In the basic version, you can use the import and export functions to move your settings between browsers and devices with a few clicks.

You can also upgrade to the PRO version and activate synchronization to automate this process.

Reddit blocks weaker since the last update?

I love this app… very nifty and probably the most effective “block” I’ve had vs the pricier subscription based blockers. However, it seems since the last update the Reddit blocks are a lot weaker … I’m able to see related posts, and the subreddit feed which I’d rather not see…

Developer Response ,

Hello, in the latest version I have returned all the listed functionality and even more. If you encounter any problems or need to add additional functions, contact me swifterapps@gmail.com
