  1. Thanks for this. I’ve used it to block Socialcam and Viddy and passed on the information to my Facebook friends. The videos it had shown me were the kind of offensive thing I wouldn’t want anyone looking over my shoulder to see on my screen.

  2. Thank you so much! This helped me remove a load of crap from FaceBook. 🙂

  3. It’s actually even worse than you suggest, in terms of how easily this comes to appear in one’s newsfeed — I declined SocialCam’s suggestion to “log in with Facebook”, closing that window immediately. Never looked at a video, never clicked “log in” etc., but found their spam — and it is spam, albeit sanctioned by Facebook — GLUED into my newsfeed, with no justification, no friend associated with the activity. I took the same steps you suggested, blocking the application, once I realized that the little arrow normally to the right of a newsfeed item, allowing for adjustment of appearance frequency, was glaringly absent. So, I can adjust the frequency with which I see bona fide friends’ news stories, but SocialCam gets to have full control of its appearance in my newsfeed? I don’t think so. I’m angered to again be prompted to perform surgery on my account, but I’ll do what I have to do to keep the tumors out. Thanks again to Facebook. Always a treat!

Thanks for stopping by! Let me know if this helped in any way :)
