For those who use Facebook every day, it can be really useful to install extensions that can facilitate connections, receiving notifications, accessing chat and publishing updates and sharing links and websites.
It is even possible to improve the Facebook site on your PC, customize its functions, add options, enlarge photos and change the graphic interface to hide what is not of interest, leaving space for what you look at more often. Thanks to Chrome extensions and applications, it also becomes easier to stay updated with news and messages received directly from the browser toolbar, without having to access the Facebook site.

The menu button opens the sidebar to jump to the news stream, event information, or visit one of the groups you have joined. In practice, you are always connected from the moment you use Chrome and you will see a button at the top right that shows all the chat notifications. Facebook remains accessible as normal, but can be watched out of the corner of the eye from the Chrome notification area.
2) Social Fixer, of which I have already spoken in the past, is the most popular facebook extension available on Google Chrome and also on Firefox, which is used to customize the entire Facebook interface to your liking and also modify it thoroughly with many options.
