Facebook has this new thing called Facebook Questions.

How do I block them? I cannot block them by clicking the 'X' sign and selecting hide all by this application, since they are by Facebook itself.

Adding these to Adblock Plus (ABP) at least helps hide the bulk of it.

Doesnt work for me, perhaps I am configuring it incorrectly. I installed Ad Block Plus, copied the above code and pasted it into the "Add filter section" –  Akash Mar 29 '11 at 12:10
    
Are you using Firefox or Chrome? In Chrome you should be able to paste it in as raw (Adblock > Options > Add your own filters > Edit Filters as raw text). –  cswiii Mar 29 '11 at 17:07
    
I am not sure if there is an equivalent method in firefox, but copying in each of those lines one by one as rules (Adblock > Preferences > My Element Hiding Rules) should work. –  cswiii Mar 29 '11 at 17:08
    
Thanks, adding it line by line in firefox works –  Akash Mar 30 '11 at 8:48

There is a Chrome Extension called Hide FB Questions which describes itself as:

Hiding all evidence of the "Questions" feature so your feed doesn't get cluttered with polls.

This is the original extension, but is NOT affiliated with Facebook in any way! The name has been changed due to copyright issues.

It works great now. –  Binarylife Jul 31 '11 at 12:19

You can easily block Facebook Questions with the F.B. Purity browser extension. It also lets you block and fix a number of other annoying "Facebook features", and it's available for Firefox, Chrome, Safari and Opera.

You cannot remove them from your feed. It also appears that if you answer a question, anyone with a facebook account can see your response and your name. Super sketchy.
