So for today I bring you another in my greasemonkey script addicition that allows you to monitor which of your “friends” on Facebook are dropping you off their follows.

Facebook Friends Checker

When the script detects that someone you used to be friends with is no longer one of your friends, a message will appear informing you about who it was and giving a link to their profile page.

The script checks by default once per hour when on Facebook, but this time can be increased through “Tools > Greasemonkey > User script commands… > Set time interval to check for removed friends…”.

How it works is when someone unfollows you on Facebook you will be notified and then the script will then have yourself unfollow them as well.  Then you can go back and follow them again.  They can never get away!!!

[Note] I have not actually seen the script in action since as far as I know no one has unfollowed me yet 🙂

If you have followed me for sometime you know how much I like finding Greasemonkey scripts that improve a service or add some kool features (or take something away even).  So today I found out about a new script that allows you to use letters on your keyboard to jump to different parts of Facebook.

Facebook Keyboard Navigation

Once you have the script installed you can jump to your photos, events, account, notes, ect ect with the push of a button.  Here is a list of the 16 per setup options.

A – Edit application settings
B – Go to list of birthdays
C – Go to photos
D – Find friends
E – Go to your list of events
F – View the list of all your friends
G – Go to groups
H – Go to your home page
I – Go to the message Inbox
L – Go to your links page
M – Send a message
N – Go to your notes
P – Go to your profile page
S – Edit your account settings
T – Go to Notifications page
V – Edit your privacy settings

And if you want to add others it is pretty easy to configure the scipt to your needs.   ReadRightWeb had a post on this same script and showed how easy it was to add your own options.

So there you have it another script to help you through this Facebook world…no its nothing earth shattering but for us geeks its a fun little tweak to play around with and hey maybe you are new to all this Greasemonkey stuff and have some questions?  Feel free to hit me up sometime and I can help you get started with it all.

My fellow FriendFeed’er Rasheen put up a blog post on ways to make the new FriendFeed beta work for you and included were a couple of greasemonkey scripts you can use to change the look, add a few features, and customize what you see.

Below are the scripts that were featured. Of course the first thing you need to do is install greasemonkey if you have not already and if you have any questions feel free to contact me and we can see what we can do.

Cleaner FriendFeed [Widescreen] [Regular]

* Cleaner and cool look and feel (FriendFeed is already clean, this makes it a lot cleaner)
* Different font style
* Highlights friends comments with baby yellow (instantly know that the user is already your friend)

* Separated each posts with a bottom border

This userstyle brings the FriendFeed conversation to another level by instantly letting you know…

FriendFeed Twitter Tweaker
[Script]

Tweak the way Twitter entries are displayed on FriendFeed

1) For Twitter entries, appends the username of the Twitter user after the “N minutes ago from Twitter” message in the entry metadata

2) Helps you track Twitter users not on FriendFeed:

– Create a feed (formerly known as a Room) that includes the text ‘twitter-friends’ anywhere in the name (e.g. “kshep-twitter-friends”)

– Add the Twitter feed from each user you’d like to track. You can add as many users as you’d like.

– When an entry appears in this feed, the name of the feed will be replaced by the username of the Twitter user who created each entry.

So there ya go.  Hope you find the scripts useful and if you come across anymore for FriendFeed or any kool greasemonkey scripts you wanna share please feel free as I am always on the lookout for more.

If you have followed my blog or my twitter feed you will know that I am a big fan of using Greasemonkey scripts to enhance the different services I use on a daily basis.  Tonight I was looking for some new ones to add to my collection and I found some that I really liked for Facebook and figured I would share them with everyone to check out.

———

Remove All Facebook Ads – Obviously this one removes all the ads on the Facebook pages you go to.

Facebook Direct Links – When you click on a link on Facebook it takes you directly to the site.

Facebook Fixer – Enhancements for Facebook: bigger profile pictures and photos, easier viewing of albums, links to download videos, showing people’s age and sign, google calendar integration, keyboard shortcuts & more. Compatible with new Facebook and fully customizable!

———

So there you have it.  Hope if you are a Facebook user you can use these scripts to help enhnace your use of the service as well.  If you have any other scripts or plugins you use with Facebook leave a comment and share it with everyone.

Found A nice little greasemonkey script that will also add some twitter search results to your google search results. If you decide you want to dig deeper when it comes to the twitter results just click on the twitter results link and it will take you right to twitter search with more tweets that contain your search criteria. Pretty Kool!

Last week I wrote a post about using greasemonkey to enhance twitter and thought hey why not do the same for FriendFeed since I do that same there as well.

Below is a list of scripts I use to add extra funtionality to FriendFeed through greasemonkey.  So do you have any scripts you use?  Would love to hear about them and share with other readers.

Endless Scrolling
Endless scrolling for friendfeed user pages. If you scroll down on a friendfeed page and the page includes these page 1 2 3… links, this script will automaticaly load the content of these pages and appends it to the site. jQuery supported.

FriendFeed Profile
Adds a profile section on FF user pages. Retrieves Twitter and LinkedIn info if available. Allows customization of which fields to display by editing the script and setting the variables. Supports multiple of same service (ie. two twitter accounts).

Cleaner FriendFeed V2
* Cleaner and cool look and feel (FriendFeed is already clean, this makes it a lot cleaner)
* Different font style
* Highlights friends comments with baby yellow (instantly know that the user is already your friend)
* Highlights your comments with baby blue (it’s cool to see your own comments from river of comments. Looks good when you are a distance away your computer, makes your comment a marker in conversations)
* Highlights Likes to light pink
* Dims comments from non-friends (normal color of FriendFeed comment)
* Separated each posts with a bottom border

This userstyle brings the FriendFeed conversation to another level by instantly letting you know…

1) Your own comment (Powder Blue)
2) Your friends comments (Light Yellow)
3) Your non-friends comments (Normal FriendFeed Comment Color)
4) Likes (Light Pink)

So there ya go.  Hope you find something to help enhance your FriendFeeding…see you in the streams!

During the day when at work I find myself jumping on the web version of twitter to see who has replied to me, what DM’s I have or even just checking out my friend stream.

Recently I added a few greasemonkey scripts that allow me to add or enhance the functionality of the web site and thought I would share with you some of my favorites.

Show # of unread replies + adds mentions
A simple script that displays the number of unread @replies and adds a Mentions tab in the Twitter sidebar.

Enhance Twitter
Enhance twitter.com by adding a search box (with search suggestions) to search tweets or current events/happenings right from your twitter home page.

Nested Twitter Replies
Adds nested replies to every Twitter conversation thread.

Endless Tweets
Loads pages endlessly when scrolling on the Twitter timeline. Other features: remembers last read tweet, embedded location map, more dynamic interface, tab-completion of friend names and live updates with Growl notifications.

Userscripts.org is a great site to find scripts like these and many others that you can use to enhance to customize services all over the interwebz so check it out.

My fellow friendfeeder Hao Chen has created a sweet script for those using greasemonkey that does two things on your twitter page:

one – it adds how many unread @replies messages you have.

two – addes a @mentions tab that when you click on it you get to see any twitter messages that include your username and not just the one’s that start out with @<username> like in the @replies.

I must say its a nice little script to have to enhance the twitter website.

Are you tired of seeing post after post about Governor Palin? Don’t have an iPhone, don’t want an iPhone, and don’t want to read about iPhones? You’re in luck, FriendFeed Savior is here to save you from all the drivel on the web that you just don’t care about. And just in case your curiosity gets the best of you, there’s a handy link to show you what you missed. And yes, it works on Friendfeed Real-Time as well.

Bjorn Stromberg is the creator of the greasemonkey script FriendFeed Savior and he also has instruction on how to edit the keywords in the script.

I know this will be a script that many in the FriendFeed community will find useful to block certain keywords. Enjoy!

If you are a FriendFeed addict like me you hate to ever leave the site as it has become the hub for my interweb connection.   But what if you need to go to sites like Brightkite, Seesmic, Diigo, ect?  You gotta leave FriendFeed for that right?  NO!!!

I just found a new greasemonkey script called FFWorkSpace that puts 26 preset favicons at the top of your FriendFeed page so that you can access the services right in FF.  Now you never have to leave!!! hehe

Comes with the following presets:

Communication
BrightKite, Gmail, Greader, Hellotxt, Identi.Ca, Jaiku, Ping.Fm, Plurk Mobile, Pownce, Twitter

Social Sharing
Buzz, Del.icio.us, Digg, Diigo, Mixx, Propeller, Reddit, StumbleUpon

Social Media
Disqus, Facebook, Last.Fm, MySpace, Seesmic, Veoh, Vimeo, YouTube

note : developed to make icons visible on most 1024px or wider monitors.
