playing friends we love you, but honestly, not the games so much.
As a women with an online business you spend tons of time on the computer and to have the games on your newsfeed can be a huge distraction and time waster.
Before you know it you may find yourself entrenched in a game and your hour has disappeared.
Here is a great tip by Kim, a social media maven, who walks you through step-by- step showing us how to block the games from our newsfeed.
How To Hide Games From The Facebook Most Recent News Feed
Bye-Bye Time Sucking Social Games!
Now take advantage of the collapsed view that games use in your “Most Recent” news feed filter to easily hide them in bulk! First, you need to be in the “most recent” filter to see what I’m talking about:
(You probably won’t see the F.B. Purity entries but that’s a browser add-on I use to make my news feed much more manageable.)
Now scroll down till you see the whole mess of game entries:
To the upper right of this blob of entries is a little drop down arrow (only shows up when you hover over the entries).
Click the drop down… select “Hide All By…” and then simply click each of the “Hide all by…” entries for each game you wish to block.
Note: You may later see another blob of games. This only “gets” the ones that your friends are playing right now. Just keep blocking the suckers and eventually you’ll get most of them. (However, I also use FB Purity which keeps most of them hidden majority of the time.)

PS: It’s important to note that this does not stop you from receiving game invites in your application invite area (tutorial on that coming soon) or stop your friends from seeing when YOU play games. This simply strips the clutter out of your daily news feed for easier reading.
