How To Stop The Incessant Facebook App Invitations

As I’m compiling Modules and screen capture vids for my upcoming class at Facebook Fortunes, I’m seeing more and more business Facebook users getting frustrated at all the frivolous app stuff.

No offense to all the genius app creators – it’s just they are not for everyone.

So, for all fellow busy business peeps, here are a couple of quick tips I’d love to share:

1. To tone down some of the inane Notifications:

Click on the down arrow next to your Inbox, and click on Notifications.

Then check/uncheck apps on the right.

2. To block specific apps:

Quickest way is this: type the name of an app you wish to block in the Search box to the top left and hit enter.

On the search results page, click the tab for x Applications (x being the number of search results).

Click on the name of the app ? scroll down and you should see a link on the right hand side that says ?Block Application.?

You can also edit all kinds of settings for each App you have installed. More on this later.
