Since so many of my current and former students use Facebook, I maintain a presence there. But lately I’ve wondered if I should give up on it since I was being deluged with annoying automatic invites and updates from various Facebook applications. People were biting me, poking me, buying me drinks, and other sorts of things I’d rather do in person than online.
Thankfully Eric Cheng’s blog shows how to stop those annoying Facebook invites. Now I know how to block the annoying applications that don’t interest me yet keep pestering me to participate. I didn’t block all invites, since I don’t mind looking at a new one now and then. But I don’t want it to keep pestering me once I’ve rejected it, and now it won’t.
