Is there any way to deactivate one's Facebook feed temporarily?
Mor Ephrem is a nice guy.  Just say sorry and it will all be ok. Say I had things that were inside troubling me but I didn't know how to express appropriately. I will not behave that way again but I am seeking help.

I take it that you want to filter your updates without deactivating your entire account. There is a Chrome add-on, News Feed Eradicator, that replaces the entire feed with an inspiring quote. Beyond that, there seems to be no setting that does anything similar.

Thanks for the tip.  Yeah, I'd like to remove the feed temporarily but still use FB to keep in touch with people.  I'm not ascetic enough to give it up entirely for Lent.  :P

Are you ascetic enough to give up oc.net for Lent?

Leave some groups and slow down on memes and polemics will be ascetic enough for my own Facelent, I'm too much of an addict.
"May the Lord our God remember in His kingdom all Holy Catholic Apostolic Church, which heralds the Word of Truth and fearlessly offers and distributes the Holy Oblation despite human deficiencies and persecutions moved by the powers of this world, in all time and unto the ages of ages."

Anyhow when God was asked he said Eastern Orthodox is true Church and not Catholic Church. So come home and enjoy.

I care about your salvation too much to do such a thing.

At least on a phone, you can delete the FB app but leave the messenger app

I found out that very second one can do it on the computer too. You just have to log on http://messenger.com

The advantage about the News Feed Eradicator (which I haven't tried yet) would be to still be able to access content inside Facebook, although not being bombed with the mighty newsfeed.
