Facebook is really a great place to stay in touch with your friends and family and to discover new friends. Even if you are a newbie at facebook you can have facebook applications and its quizzes as a great time pass. But if this is so then why would one want to block facebook quizzes and facebook applications? The answer to this lies in the fact  that once your facebook friend count increases, your facebook wall gets cluttered because of the annoying facebook application messages and facebook quizzes taken by your friends.

So here is what you can do to block annoying facebook applications and quizzes.

1: How to block individual facebook applications? Your facebook wall might get cluttered due to nonsense facebook application messages in which your friend is interested but you’re not. So to block any individual facebook application hover the mouse over that particular applications message and you will see a Hide button. Click on that Hide button and you’re done. You won’t ever get any message from that application user.

3: Disable/block Posts on your wall: If you didn’t want someone or anyone to post on your wall then go for this option. Go to your facebook profile, look for the Options button which you will find just below the Share button. Click on the options button. Now you will see the Settings button, click on it. Uncheck the box next to “Friends may post to my wall” to disable postings on your wall by your friends.

Re, the question above,
How do you stop FB app’s on the Ipod touch, I’ve blocked, hidden most of the stupid app’s on the face-book main site but this doesn’t transfer or relate to the FB app for the Ipod touch.

Can anyone help as there doesn’t seem to be an option that I can find to block the stupid app’s …
