Sick of seeing your friends kid all over your feed?
There’s an app for that.
A new ‘Baby Blocker’ app promises to filter out any posts containing babies from your Facebook feed.
In a stroke of genius, a condom company called Skyn is behind the app. A spokesperson for the company told Pretty52 that the app will ensure you “never see a snotty face on your Facebook again.”
We’ll take that.
Instead of baby pics, the blocker will replace them with “images that you’re interested in”.
It works by automatically reviewing the composition of each image uploaded to Facebook and judging if it contains baby content by identifying elements such as ‘three people’, ‘people smiling’, or ‘baby’.
If a baby is detected, the HTML of the Facebook page will be altered, blocking the image and replacing it with something else.
