How to Stop Notifications from Annoying Games in Facebook

There's nothing worse than getting opening Facebook and seeing 24 notifications and 22 of them are requests from a stupid game that your friends are playing on Facebook. There's a simple way to turn off notifications from games in Facebook, but Facebook doesn't make it so you can turn off all notifications for games; you have to do them on a game-by-game basis.

So here is the method that you need use:

  1. On a computer, click on the notification and hover over the offending notification.
  2. An 'X" will appear to the right of the box. 
  3. Click the box.
  4. A dialog box will pop up asking you if you want to block all requests from that game.
  5. An option will pop up asking if you want to report for spam. I always click that but I am sure that clicking that doesn't actually help anything.
  6. Do a little dance, make a little love, get down tonight. *clap *clap
So that's the gist of it. You have to go through and do this for each game, and there will be a point in the future where Facebook decides to reset all your privacy settings again, and you might have to do this all over again.
