A Post For Farmville Haters

It’s come to my attention that a lot of people who do not play Farmville on Facebook really really hate all the Farmville notifications in the Facebook stream. What non-players may not realize is that these notifications play a crucial part in the game.

Through those notifications we collect bonuses, rare animals, and special objects. There is no other way to obtain some of these items. Therefore, when a person posts such notifications, they’re doing all the other Farmville players a favor.

Now I can empathize with non-players and understand that this constant stream of irrelevant notifications may be cumbersome and annoying. Luckily you can hide such postings and prevent them from appearing in your stream.

Simply find a Farmville notification such as this one.


When you hover over the right corner of the notification with your mouse, you will see a hide button. Click on it, and you will see a dialog box like this one.


Click on Hide Farmville. Now you’ll never have to worry about another Farmville post in your Facebook stream and you don’t have to whine and complain about Farmville players anymore. Yay! (By the way, since I didn’t want to hide Monica or Farmville, I clicked cancel.)

This tip also works on Cafe World, Mafia Wars and any other application you deem annoying.

  1. I can see how non-players would be annoyed by all the farmville crap. It annoys me…but I don’t want to block it because I want some of them. I just REALLY DO NOT CARE if someone has attained level one of tomato mastery. Or do I care if you’ve reached level 30. I only post if there is an animal or item people can get, and I wish more people would do the same.

  2. Me too nate, me too. If it’s not going to benefit me or someone else I see no need to post most of the crap that comes about on Farmville. mmm Farmville!
