AdBlock Plus works, but you have to learn how to use it.
If you don't want to have to block ads individually, you have to subscribe to a filter list. This is not difficult, but I think people give up because it takes 20 seconds and thinking to figure it out. All I know is that AdBlock Plus works great for me, and I can use a browser without AB+ if I want to see what others see.
You can somewhat adjust how much information you get from friends. Click their name or picture, click the arrow by the "friends" button and change the annoying people from "friends" to "acquaintances".
Or you can start a new group. I have one I call "people who post crap", and I don't get any of their stuff in my feed, but I can still go to their page and see what they've been up to. I do this with crusaders and those who post 20 or more music videos a day.
You can unfriend people who don't post anything you want to read. They aren't notified in any way when you do that.
