Some Facebook friends are playing games on Facebook such as Empires & Allies and Hidden Chronicals. I never tried those games or gave them permission to contact me, but I receive annoying daily requests to join.

I've tried to find our how block this request messages, and some web pages point me to: http://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=applications

But neither Empires & Allies or Hidden Chronicals are on this page, and reporting this apps as spam does not solve it either.


From the Facebook News Feed click on Apps and Games in the left sidebar, or go to https://www.facebook.com/games. Any requests from friends should appear at the top. Go the upper right corner of the request and click the X that appears. That will hide that request and provide the option of blocking the application, or ignoring all requests from that person.

If you are not receiving requests/invites but it is just appearing your News Feed, and you do not want to see those, you can hide all game stories from particular people, or all stories from a particular game. Just hover over one of those posts in your News Feed, click on the ∨ that appears in the upper right corner of the post, and choose the desired option.

  • Hard to tell which answer would be correct. This one worked as well. Voted up. Thanks.

Visit this link and block all the apps: http://www.facebook.com/settings/?tab=privacy&section=apps&h=AQPcSIPevfWeeqXJ

From now on, if you receive any request from them, click on the small arror that appears above it and select, "Hide/Ignore all Requests for ___"

Also go to the "Blocked People and Apps" page to block the particular Apps and App Requests from the particular friends of your who send you those requests.

  • As I told in my last paragraph, neither Empires & Allies or Hidden Chronicals are on the list, so... how do I block them?

  • I think I've found it. It's in the "Blocked People and Apps " section, and I was looking in the "Apps games and websites" section. PFF I'll wait to see if it's effective and post the result here.
