What happens if you hide everything on Facebook? I tried it for a day.

Spoiler: not much really happened. Telling Facebook you want to hide everything it shows you only means it will try to show you those same things again later.

imageI began my day of refusal with a perfectly pleasant photo of a friend boating. I don’t want to see this. Next was a post from someone I don’t know, but liked by someone I do, about Iggy Azalea. Nope. Another boating pic, news about Don Pardo’s death, beach pictures, a note about some friends going to a concert, a Caddyshack meme, a Ferguson story, a photo of a birthday cake, a surprising number of Jezebel stories. I don’t want to see this, I replied to each one. —What happens if you hide everything on Facebook? I tried it for a day..
