With getting more and more friends on Facebook, I also get a whole bunch of them playing Mafia Wars, Farmville and all these other applications. And of course every day they have to share with me their latest score. I just found a good way how to stop getting these annoying updates in my news feed:
- In the entry of the application in your news feed, click on the application name (highlighted in the screenshot). This will lead you to the application page.
- On the application page you will see a link "Block Application" (Highlighted again). Click on it.
- Facebook will ask you to confirm your decision. Confirm to block it.
- Go back to your Facebook start page (news feed). All entries from this application will be gone!
