I have to admit, I’m a big fan of social media games that are played on Facebook. They are a lot of fun, especially when you can see how your friends are playing and interacting with them.
But one thing that has seriously annoyed me are the games that keep pushing new messages and updates to me – on a non-stop basis.
Point in case – CityVille.
I get no less than 20 updates and messages from the CityVille app each day. And today I had enough, so I wanted to remove it.
It wasn’t the easiest thing in the world to do, I have to admit.
Some people might laugh at this, but I couldn’t easily and quickly find a way to get rid of the CityVille app, all the while fear was overcoming me as I new any second now one of my friends was wanting me to be their neighbor!
Here’s the easy way to remove yourself from an app:
So here’s what I did to quickly remove myself from the CityVille app – which would be applicable to any app on Facebook.
1) Visit the actual app on Facebook – for example, go to CityVille as if you are going to play the game.
2) Once you are physically at the app, scroll all the way down to the bottom of the screen and you’ll see a gray’ish looking text link that will be the name of the app > go ahead and click that text link.
3) Now you should be at the app’s page on Facebook . This looks just like a Facebook Fan Page. Now you need to scroll down to just below the fan box on the left hand side and find the link that reads “Remove App” > go ehead and click it.
And that’s it.
You have now removed yourself from the that app and you’ll no longer receive any updates or notifications from that app.
