Apart from being one of the best social network, Facebook is a chilling zone for many gamers too. But make sure you are not pissing off your friends with unwanted game requests and referrals they(Facebook games) want you to perform before letting you enjoy the games. If you don’t want to piss off your friends with unwanted games notifications and requests, then some Facebook privacy settings changes will save you from some cold wars. Here’s how to get over it.
Facebook Privacy Settings To Avoid Sending Games Requests To Friends
- Login to your Facebook Account. Move over to Facebook Privacy Settings (the link will take you to Facebook Privacy Settings page directly, make sure you are logged in).
- Click “Edit Settings” beside “Ads, Apps and Websites”. This is a Facebook Settings page which will let you control all Facebook Apps, Websites, Ads and games you play and use.
- Next web page will list all the Facebook apps, games, ads you use. Click on Edit Settings button beside that.
- Apps Settings is the next page, click on Edit link beside any app, to customize its settings.
- “Posts on your behalf” set this one to “Only Me”. Whatever posts the games want to do, it’ll be only visible to you and not to your friends and followers.
- You can also set it to the people, you are playing against. Simply, choose custom and then either choose some specific people or lists. Using the same option, you can hide that from someone on Facebook, you don’t want to share games status and requests with.
- Better would be, to make a separate lists of all your gamer friends on Facebook and share games status, requests with that specific list only. It would really save a lot of cold wars and irritations between friends.
- Unfortunately, all these steps you’ve to do for every game, apps you play and use on Facebook. That’s where lies the problem.
- Alternatively, you can set this while trying some Facebook for the first time, while granting the permission to access your personal information. Simply, set the Facebook game notifications to “Only Me”. There’s an option for that, right there when you click some Facebook to play. Check the screenshot!
- Would be better if you invite people who are interested in playing Facebook games with you and not like running amuck through your Facebook friends list.
It’s just like hiding status from some Facebook friends, but here we are doing it for good deeds. Hiding the status messages produced by the Facebook games we play.
I’m not sure, whether gamers actually care about it, but if they don’t to lose friends or forcing them to put in their block list, I’m sure they would try out this tutorial to block Games Requests from pissing off their friends.
Bonus Tip :- If you are already pissed off by all these games requests on Facebook, then try out this Google Chrome Extension, Requestulator for Facebook which allow you to accept/reject Facebook Games/Apps requests in a batch.
Happy Social Networking!
