 Add a Dislike option to your status update
“Like” buttons are everywhere on Faceebook, and they are almost every where on the web. But what if you choose to update or share something that your friends can “dislike?”
This amazing Status Magic facebook app can add a dislike button to any status updates posted via the app. And if you actually want to really mix it up you can customize the second emotion to anything, such as “boring”, “hate”, “agree”, or even “LOLs”.

Hide Updates from Certain People
You can find these in privacy settings ( in your account menu on the top right of a Facebook page) you will see options that you can select whether everyone, just friends or friends of friends can see your status updates. However, there is a way to narrow those options down even further.
   To take charge of these options, click the padlock icon just below your box on your wall and a drop down menu should appear. Selecting “customize” will bring more options such as “make this visible to “and”hide from” with the option to make your selection a default.

     Tag People In Your Status Update
To mention someone’s name in a status update just type “@” in the status bar and start typing their name as it is known on facebook. An auto-generated list will come up with people in your social circle whose name starts with the letter you typed.

    Turn Your Status Updates Into a Word Cloud
This particular trick is funny. You can even visualize an entire country as a word cloud. The Status Analyzer 3D  will look at what it is you’ve been chatting about lately and generate a list, and then a pretty, colorful, animated cloud as pictured above. You can even share the results with others on the social networking site by posting it to your friend’s walls.

    How to avoid seeing ads on Facebook

This is again a nice hack which you can acheive with help of a small script that allows you to remove the Advertisements and Updates in the right column of the site. Although the ads are not really annoying but it may still annoy some people. Facebook Cleaner is a nice application to clear the ads that appear on Facebook.
