My need is to filter the content of my fb feeds, I want to see the posts from specific people/pages. How can I code this kind of extension?
Is it at all possible? If yes, what tools I require for getting the job done?

Why a chrome extension rather than a web app?

If you want to write an extension, this isn't the right place for the question, but we don't have a forum for writing browser extensions, so not sure where would be better.

I am not sure what this would be called

Since this comes under the front end technology, wouldn't be this the correct forum.

Perhaps. The focus of this forum is web pages, HTML, JavaScript and CSS. Things that run in the browser, rather than as part of the browser. But as Chrome extensions are written using the same technologies, it's likely the closest thing we have.

I'd suggest starting here.
