Suddenly yesterday I made an interesting discovery. I could hide those useless updates from my view for good! I knew much earlier that I could hide any update that I didn't wish to see, but I didn't know the hide function could be application-specific. I could actually get rid those annoying mess from my home page FOREVER!
Here's how I did it:
I clicked on the button that said “Hide” on the top right corner of the announcement.
I didn’t want to hide everything about Majidah, but I wanted to hide everything about FishVille. So I clicked “Hide FishVille”.
No more FishVille stuff appearing on my homepage!
Say if I click on “Edit Options” in Step 2 above, this popup appears. I wonder what value this adds. I don’t mind genuine updates from friends, what bothers me are garbage updates from their applications!
Voilà! Quite a huge accomplishment for a non-techy person *patting myself on the back*
