On logging on to Facebook today I noticed this icon on the right of the "What's on you mind?" box:
clicking it shows this:
as (apparently) there is a football (soccer for those of you on the left side of the pond) match on today.
Now as I'm not that interested in football I can (and did) click the "x" to get rid of the second box, but how can I get rid of the football icon altogether?
I know I can wait until the match is over (as the icon disappears when it does), but there are going to be other matches and other sports and I'd rather not have this popping into and out of my status update box at apparently random intervals.
