Blocking Annoying Facebook Game Apps

As I see it you have two options when it comes to all those annoying Facebook Game Apps… You can block all your friends that use them or more friendly – you can block the annoying games themselves.

I finally blocked Candy Crush this morning and it felt really good knowing that I won’t see it again!

Here are some instructions based on the current Facebook format:

1) Go the App Center – you can do this two ways a) scroll down your News Feed until you find the App Center link on the left hand side or b) click on an app in the upper-right corner and follow the link to the app page and then app center.


2) Find the app you want to block – you can search for it or it might be listed on the main page.  If you followed a link from the app you should go straight to its page.


3) Click on the app you want to block – I’m choosing Farmville 2 (I already blocked Candy Crush and Farmville).


4) This takes you to the app’s Facebook page.  If you look at the bottom right corner you’ll see a link that says “block”.  Click it!


5) Read the disclaimer and click “Confirm”


6) You should get a box that says “Block Successful.” Click close and enjoy the fresh air your Facebook feed is now breathing!


Not only is your News Feed cleaner, but hopefully your “friendship” is still intact!

30 Day of Biking

30 Days of Biking is an idea started here in the Twin Cities to get people out on their bikes.  September marks round 2 of this attempt.  The initial 30 Days of Biking was in April of this year and had high turnout both locally and around the world.  Part of the success was using social media tools like Twitter and the #30daysofbiking hashtag, Dailymile and of course Facebook.

There is only one rule to 30 Days of Biking:

… you bike every day for 30 days—around the block, 20 miles to work, whatever suits you—then share your adventures online. We believe biking enriches life, builds community, and preserves the Earth.

Pretty simple eh? It should be fairly simple to get on your bike and pedal somewhere each day – work, grocery, friends house, down the street and back…

I wanted to participate in April’s event, but I wasn’t able to bike thanks to Lyme Disease! I’m excited to do it this time around.  Even though I already bike pretty much everywhere I think it will be a good challenge to actually make myself ride somewhere each day.

While you don’t need to, the organizers are encouraging everyone to register.  It is painless to register and you still have time to ride today!
