My sentiments, exactly! And that’s is why I’ve hidden Facebook apps from my Facebook news feed. Do those Farmville, Mafia Wars, etc. notifications annoy you on Facebook? Just hover over one of those updates in your News Feed and click on the “Hide” option that appears to the right. Choose to hide those notifications from your feed and you won’t have to worry about them ever again!
However, according to this article from Mashable, we might not have to worry about Facebook app notifications any more. They supposedly said goodbye to the practice today. However, the article does mention that the notifications will shift to email notifications – which is just as bad in my opinion (but tolerable thanks to Gmail’s filter feature)!
