List of Facebook Apps I've blocked

Update

August 6, 2010

Facebook added an application kill switch, which I invoked, so now all applications are blocked. Yay.


Here is a list of Facebook apps I've blocked. With one minor exception, my policy is not to allow any third-party Facebook apps.

Even though I use Facebook sparingly (it's mostly there just in case people want to find me), I find Facebook apps irritating enough to stomp out and brag about it. Besides being annoying information vomit, they are often also security risks (they can phish information from your Facebook profile if you allow them).

The first 20 or so apps on this list I blocked before even having used them; when I first signed up I browsed through the most popular apps and blocked them all. I take great pride in having blocked SuperPoke without ever having been SuperPoked.

Here's the list:

  • Causes
  • MyCalendar
  • Birthday Calendar
  • Abrazos
  • IQ Test
  • Agenda de cumpleaƱos
  • Pittsburgh Steelers Fans
  • Top Friends
  • Collect Hearts
