Do you ever wish that you block out all Kardashian related news? Well now you can! A 21-year-old British viral marketer James Shamsi has created a programme that will remove any mention of the family from your computer screen. In May, Shamsi released a browser extension called KardBlock.
“Basically, what was happening was that there were Kardashians everywhere, and I wanted to do something about that,” he explained. “But for me, when I follow pages, I am not doing it to get a constant stream of updates on the Kardashians. I am interested in deeper issues. But every platform seems interested in Kardashian news to the point that everything else gets crushed.”
However, James’ plans don’t stop there.”We are looking to disrupt the entire digital advertising space. We want to replace all advertising with donation links and important news widgets,” he said.
This is an example of what a news page might look like with the extension applied:
