Many of us use facebook today for business. One problem, however, is that the unavoidable mixing of business and personal posts can add a lot of noise to your facebook feed.
For example, applications like FarmVille generate automated posts that can become quite annoying when all you really want to do is keep up with your friends’ activities.
Fortunately, there’s a simple answer:
- Mouse over an offending post in your facebook feed. In the upper right corner of the post, the word “Hide” appears.
- Click “Hide” and you get an option to hide all posts from the person (which you don’t want in this instance) and an option to hide all posts from the application itself.
- Click on the option to hide the application, and you’re all set.
One of the problems with facebook, of course, is that you don’t know about this option until you happen upon it. Hope this is helpful.
