Nowadays many of the Facebook posts I see are of this form:

Somebody I. Know liked this.

I rather not see these posts, because when a friend likes something, this isn't as strong enough as them sharing it. In fact, if they don't share it on purpose, I take it to mean that they don't intend to share it. I suppose they don't like it enough to share it. I'd rather see messages they actually type in, photos they take, and links they share. And nothing more.

Is it possible to selectively hide these posts?

I use Firefox, but could switch to Chrome if there is a Chrome-only solution.

First, add your friends to friend lists if they are not already in lists. Click on Friends in the left sidebar to see your friend lists or create new lists. For each list where you do not want to see certain types of updates, click on the name of the list (in the left sidebar or on the list page that comes up when you click Friends in the left sidebar), and then click on the Manage List button on the right. Click on "Choose Update Types..." and then uncheck "Comments and Likes".

Manage List » Choose Update Types... Comments and Likes
