Want to keep folks from posting things on your wall? You might have noticed with Facebook’s latest changes that a lot of the things that used to be on your home page are now auto posting to your wall. Well there is hope to keep you from having your feed cluttered with “Bling”…of course if you like bling, you might not want to change anything.
First thing to fix!
If you click on “Profile” and then directly underneath the share button, you’ll notice a little button that says “Settings,” click that. Now there is a bunch of options that pop up, I want you to uncheck “Combine Posts – show posts from friends in the default view.” Now your friends will only see what YOU want them to see not all the goobley goop that people are trying to post on your wall.
Ahhhh now all those game applications where people are trying to give you loot, tell you about their high score in Bedazzle and so forth are GONE! But wait, you like seeing if you can beat your buddy in Bedazzle? No problem, just go back up to the top where it showed settings. Across from there is the choice of “Your Name + Friends, Your Name, or Just friends.” If you choose “Your Name + Friends,” it all comes back. You can also choose Just Friends if you want. I have mine set to Just Syl so that I don’t have to see all the gifts etc. and I suggest you do the same if you want to remove those gifts, mafia wars, champagne requests…oh it goes on and on doesn’t it?
If you want to stop anyone from ever posting any bling to your page you can go to your wall and hover over the bottom of the app where it says the app name. For instance, if it’s mafia wars, you’de right click on the name Mafia Wars and then the Applications page will open. You then can choose “Block Application,” and that means that those posts cannot appear on your wall anymore. People will still be able to send the info to you, but you won’t have to worry about it appearing on your actual wall.
