Bored of seeing FourSquare everywhere? FilterMe is now
On the back of my ConversationView
plugin for Seesmic Desktop 2, I
have created another one called FilterMe.
I'd like to say this was all my brilliant idea but unfortunately
not. @blowdart sent
tweet and said something similar had been done before
by @adkinn but
@blowdart wanted to configure it himself.
And so the first version of FilterMe is now available for you to
try out and give me some feedback on it.
You can configure FilterMe to block Tweets, Facebook posts,
LinkedIn posts or all of them. This can be done by hiding a
particular user or by hiding items based on their content.
To hide a user you right click an item in your timeline and
select 'Hide this user':
It will then ask you to confirm that you want to hide the
You can remove this filter by going to the plugin settings.
And in the Usernames section clicking the remove button next to
the user you no longer want to hide. As you can see the plugin

So in this example I am hiding posts
- from LinkedIn that contain the
- from Twitter with the hashtag #dddsw
- from Any feed that contain the
It should be noted that the filter is case insensitive.
Click Save and you are all set. Any future posts that
match a filter will be hidden from your timeline. If you want
to hide items immediately then you will have to restart Seesmic
Desktop 2 for the filters to take effect.
At the moment it isn't possible to filter by Application.
I'm hoping that I can add this funtionality in a bit later
In the meantime, I would be most grateful if you could download
a copy of the plugin from here,
install it, use it and then provide some feedback. You can
send your feedback by email or posting a comment on this blog
Thanks in advance!
