Game & App Requests on Facebook can be annoying!

In a prior post we discussed how to block the game notices from your news feed… but what about those pesky application requests and invites?

Here’s how to block a Facebook Game or Application from sending you requests!

Steps To Block Games & Apps on FB:

1) From your news feed (main page), scroll down the left hand side until you see the “Apps and Gams” entry. Click It.

    If you do not see the entry you may need to click the “more” at the bottom of the entries in the left column.

2) In the center panel you will see all of the invites and requests.

3) Hover over the request with your mouse until a small “X” appears in the upper right corner of the item. Click It.

4) The box will change, giving you additional options to block all requests by the sender and/or all requests from the app.

    Generally, I only need to block the app. However, if someone is consistently sending me crap, then the “ignore all requests from sender” option is excellent.

Now, between hiding the apps in the news feed and blocking their requests, you can begin to get your sanity back!

I also run FB Purity as a browser add-on to further refine and improve my Facebook feed. I love it!

I still have issues with some of the games out there and people sending me requests. Also, I have one that I cannot get rid of the requests and there are more than 100+… very annoying to remove. *sighs* I really only play 2 things these days as I have no time for anything else.

Thanks Kim, I was doing it one by one, but If I do it your way, looks like you can just block all games and such at once? Is that correct? I’ll be checking further. It seems like new games are always coming forth.
Thanks and have a wonderful week!
