My Facebook application blacklist

by Volker Weber

If you continue to find automatic status updates in your river of news, you have the option to remove them from your feed. That has not worked very well for me. Gowalla for instance kept coming back, for whatever reason.

There is a simple solution. Click on the app name under the status update, and on the app page, in the left column, click on "Block App". Gone forever.

seems you are getting the most out of it, right?

...or you could just turn off ALL applications in your privacy-settings with a few clicks.
Here´s a Video-Tutorial

because no matter how much you block, new apps will continue to annoy.

Klaus Dietrich, 2011-01-16

Yes, one could do that. But I enjoy a few apps which I don't want to turn off.

Volker Weber, 2011-01-16

That is one impressive list. So, how German *are* you? Is there really an app to work that out?

James Bliss, 2011-01-17

There is an app, but I don't know what it does. It's one of the things that people post on your wall and you have to grant the app access to all your data, just to get in. It's what all the Yes/No apps try to do.

These apps are great indicators to see how savvy people are with social networks. The more your use them, the more you still have to learn.

Beauty full list, for those that would love to be able to do that, basically Here´s a Video-Tutorial block Facebook games posting on wall, its a tedius task but its a must. Blocking all apps will prevent you from having access to some beneficial applications.
