Get Rid of App Announcements [Facebook]

I’m a real PITA to my kids. I don’t like games on my mobile phones (apparently Sudoku doesn’t count as a game), or on my PC, and I’m not huge on playing games in Facebook, either.

So while I find all your conversations and activities hugely amusing, I often don’t want to be harrassed by some of the quizzes that you answer (“Which boob-size are you?” is a particularly obnoxious example of this).

If you share my feelings on this, it is rather fortunate that Facebook allows you to block apps that you don’t like – very easily and from the news feed.

Just put your mouse over the news item, and a little ‘Hide’ will pop up on the right hand side. Click the arrow and then select ‘Hide everything from super annoying application’ and you’re done! Genius!
