Have you ever found yourself clicking on a chain of Facebook profiles and eventually realizing you're on your cousin's husband's best friend from college's Facebook page? And then you accidentally like one of their pictures. To save yourself from social media embarrassment when you've gone down the rabbit hole in Facebook stalking, this extension prevents you from liking, commenting, or sharing a post, while not blocking any other functionality.
What it does
Prevents you from accidentally liking a Facebook picture.
How we built it
We built a Google Chrome extension
Challenges we ran into
Neither of us had ever worked with Chrome extensions so in the last 24 hours we familiarized ourselves with various Chrome Platform APIs.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
One of our team members had never used HTML, CSS, or JS before and by the end she was hacking like a pro.
What's next for Down the Rabbit Hole
Mobile! The problem of accidentally liking a post or picture is much more common when browsing Facebook on a mobile device, so our next step is to add this "Stealth mode" to mobile devices.
