How to hide Farmville and Mafia Wars on Facebook


In the past two weeks I happened to mention to my husband and another friend that they can hide the activity of their Facebook friends who constantly play Farmville and Mafia Wars.

It occurred to me that others would probably want to know how to hide the game updates too.

I’m not talking about hiding the friend from the Facebook stream entirely.

Facebook was kind enough to give us the ability to hide the gaming activity.

You can try it now. Go to Facebook and look through your news stream for those irritating non-sensical updates.

Hover your mouse over the update until you see ‘Hide’ pop up on the right. Click it and you’ll be given the option of hiding Mafia Wars, Farmville or whatever the annoyance is. Or you can hide that friend entirely.

Easy. Simple and no-one gets hurt.
