Clearing Clutter Out of Your Facebook News Feed

by Louellen Coker on January 30, 2010

One of the first complaints we hear from new (and sometimes long-time) facebook users is something similar to, “While I like hearing what people are talking about, I really don’t care about where they’re at in Mafia Wars, the movie character they look theĀ  most like, or that they got hit in the head by a virtual pillow!”

If you number among the folks that tend to shy away from facebook because you don’t want, or simply don’t have time, to scroll through all the various games your friends choose to participate in. You can easily get rid of the clutter these applications put into your feed stream without getting rid of the pithy things your friends say. Just follow these three simple steps.

1. Mouse over your facebook Friend’s post.
