How to Block Annoying Facebook Game, App Requests

Continuously, annoying game requests in Facebook have already made accessing the website intolerable. It is the most annoying feature of Facebook that many of us want to block permanently. Gaming in the social giant becomes trending these days. Most of the Fb users love to spend times by playing games like Candy crush saga, Candy crush soda, Throne rush, etc. But, not everyone is fond of this. I, personally use Facebook only for gathering important daily updates and few social activities purposes. So, continuous game request seems annoying to me. I never have played the games in Facebook, neither I want to play it in near future. So, I was eagerly looking for a solution over blocking of Facebook game requests and finally manage to block these. However, blocking entire Facebook account or changing Facebook name are not the solutions by any means. So, you need to unblock your Facebook account and just you need to block the game requests feature.

Fortunately, a perfect solution can be found inside Facebook.com’s setting page for blocking such annoying requests. When you successfully block the requests, you will never get any notifications regarding gaming. But, that does not matter much to me and of-course, even to you.
