Blocking Facebook Game Requests

Block Apps on Facebook
Not a fan of Candy Crushville or Farm/City Life? Are you tired of your friends asking you to play games via Facebook?  Well, in defense of those that do play, the game will encourage the player to "invite their friends" and will automatically hit their friend list.  Although I don't usually do the invites if I can help it, there are occasions that it accidentally happens.  The good new is that you can block those apps from sending you messages forever in just a few steps.
  1. On your desktop or laptop, sign into Facebook. 
  2. Grab the name of the app you want to block (I just copy the title with Ctrl/c).
  3. Click the gear on the upper right hand corner of your Facebook page. 
  4. Go to "Settings" on the drop-down menu. 
  5. In "General Settings" , then go to "Blocking" listed on the left hand side.
  6. Scroll down to the category, "Block apps".
  7.  Enter the name of the app in the text box and hit the enter key.
Once you block an app, it can no longer contact you or get non-public information about you through Facebook. It can always be unblocked by clicking the "Unblock" link beside each app.  Poof!  All done! ☺
