Inconsistent, but gets the job done more often than not. With a bit more work and a parameter for custom filters, it could really be something special.

Found a buzzfeed article on my feed shortly after installing..

I love the idea, but it looks like it simply doesn't work. Not one minute after I installed it I went to Facebook and saw a viralnova link that somebody had posted. If this worked properly I'd give it five stars though, so I hope it gets fixed.
