How to Hide Friends' Annoying Farmville Updates from Facebook

If you are a Farmville lover, this post is probably not for you...

But if you are one of the 6 Million+ fans on the "I dont care about your farm, or your fish, or your park, or your mafia!!!" facebook page, you'll probably be interested in this "facebook how to tips" to hide your friends' annoying game and application feeds from appearing on your facebook timeline.

Did you know that you actually are only two clicks away to have a peace of mind, and to stop the annoying application updates? Here's how:

Step 1
Hover your cursor over the upper right corner of your friend's farmville accomplishment (sorry to be sarcastic), and a "Hide" button will appear. It will look like this:

Step 2
Click on the "Hide" button, and two more buttons will appear. First one is to hide the actual friend (and his or her entire status updates from your timeline), and the second one is hide the application's automatic updates from your news feed / facebook timeline. It will look like this:

Click on the latter, and it will prevent all stories from that particular application from appearing on your home page regardless of which friend the update is coming from.

Now take a deep breath, exhale, and relax. You're freed from the annoying application updates!

Remember, Farmville is a very common one, but others are into Mafia Wars, Country Life, Family Feud, Fishville (I made that up, is there a fishville?). You will need to repeat the process for each additional application as the updates appear.

Now what do you do if you change your mind and want to get back the updates? That's a whole another blog post, and I will save it until I actually see people commenting on and requesting tips for how to unhide and get back the Farmville updates. :)
