If you’re on Facebook, you might have noticed that a lot of applications exist and a lot of them constantly ping you when people try to add, poke, write, vampire, werewolf and compare you. One of the most annoying is SuperWall because when people who have the application installed see your profile they see a SuperWall on your profile even if you DONT have it installed. They write something and the piece of crap application sends you a notification making it sound like the SuperWall exists. Sneaky and annoying as hell.
After complaining about it in my status, MC informed me that you can block applications! I looked into it and it’s very simple, if a bit hidden out. Here’s how you do it:
- Go to the Applications page.
- Browse for the app you want to block, for example SuperWall.
- Look in the right column and at the bottom you’ll find a link “Block Application”.
- Click that and you’re done.
I’m getting major déja vu writing this, hopefully I’m not repeating myself but I’m too lazy/busy to verify ;).
