Auto hide annoying Facebook posts

Auto hide annoying Facebook posts My Facebook has been littered with what can only be described as spam relating to the Apple announcements about some more things they are going to be selling or something like that.  

موقع انترنت I am not an Apple fan and do not care less about this so I thought there must be an easy way to hide this kind of thing but I didn't find anything so I decided to make something to do it for me.

القفز فوق هذا الموقع This is a super simple JavaScript GreaseMonkey or TamperMonkey script for scanning your Facebook feed and deleting the nodes form the DOM that contain a string that you have decided is annoying. In this example I have used Apple related words as there is allot of Apple spam on my Facebook at the moment but you can add whatever words you find annoying to the "hideAnnoyingThingsStrings" array and any post containing that string will be deleted.

I find this thing pretty useful for making my Facebook feed more appropriate for work and less annoying to look at in general, especially since David Cameron started running advertising campaigns on there.
