At some point of time most you would have got irritated on facebook because of so many quizzes and other application messages cluttering your wall. No second thought that it is annoyingly ridiculous to see so many messages which *may* be of no importance to you. If you are a victim of such a scenario, here is a quick solution to reclaim your facebook wall. If you don’t use facebook, this post is not for you, consider reading any other post on this blog :). This will hide the messages from games too like ‘FarmVille‘, which I mentioned in previous post.
In order to block quizzes and other application messages the first and the foremost requirement is to use FireFox browser. I am sorry, but Internet Explorer doesn’t support this trick.
- If you don’t have FireFox browser, go get it now.
- Install GreaseMonkey add-on to your FireFox browser.
- Install the Facebook Purity GreaseMonkey script
All the installations are pretty straight forward and self explanatory as you click on those links. Once all the 3 steps mentioned above are done, now go and visit your facebook wall on firefox and all those annoying quizzes and other application messages are hidden! If you are very curious and want to know whats happening with those quizzes from your friends, just click on the ‘Show’ link as shown in the image. That brings up all those blocked messages, which you can hide upon a click again.
I am not sure if something similar exists for other browsers. As and when I get to know, you will find an update here :)
