Hate Those Facebook Games? You Can Block Facebook Apps in 2 Easy Steps
Had enough of those annoying invitations to play Farmville 2, Cityville, Lucky Slots – all those crazy Facebook games? Well – we found a very easy way to block Facebook apps and games from ever bugging you again.
I found this little trick entirely by chance one day. I noticed that my notifications icon had somewhere in the neighborhood of 100 alerts on it, so I clicked it to make the number bubble go away. It was full of invitations to play those crazy Facebook games – most of which I haven’t even heard of. By accident, my mouse hovered on the upper right hand side of one of the notifications and an ‘X’ appeared – the universal ‘delete’ sign – with the magic words ‘Turn Off’ And so I clicked.
And then Facebook delivered the present we’ve all been waiting for – I could turn off those notifications FOREVER!
Of course I clicked and then I got the Facebook present to top all Facebook presents – you can report the app as spam! YIPPEE!
I tested the “turn off” option on several notifications and found the only thing you can’t turn off in this way is invitations to Events. So Facebook – could you make that the next feature you add to this beautiful option? Thanks.
