Games are fun to play, until it reaches the point of annoyance for others. The viral nature of Facebook and other Social Networks have helped games like Candy Crush to grow a huge user base in a short span of time. The game allows you to invite friends on Facebook to join the game which probably unlocks new levels or tries in the game.
But the invites are annoying to those who don’t play the game. I am sure there are many who just don’t want to receive these candy crush requests in their notifications. You can’t really blame those who send you the requests, The game is so addictive that it forces them to do it. Plus the game developers have designed the game in such a way that they have to invite others once or twice throughout the game. It helps them get more users -> more revenue. This guide will help both Candy Crush players as well as haters! Read more to find out.
Now blocking these requests are very easy but many of you don’t know the exact steps to do the same, Simply marking the request notification as Spam or Unfollowing the notification doesn’t help you in blocking the game requests. Unfortunately Facebook doesn’t give you an option to block any and all app requests (since it will seriously affect their app developers). Hence you have to block each app individually. So here is how to do it, We will be taking the example of Candy Crush Saga here.
How To Block Candy Crush Requests on Facebook.
Step 1. Login to your Facebook Account.
Step 2. Visit the following Facebook Settings Tab – Manage Blocking.
Step 3 : (A). If you want to block all App Invites from a particular friend instead of a particular application, Then scroll to the “Block app invites” section and Type in the name of your friend in the field and press enter.
Step 3 : (B). If you want to block an App completely so you won’t receive anything related to the app from anyone in your friendlist, Then scroll to the “Block apps” section and Type in the name of the Application ( eg: Candy Crush Saga) and press enter.
Now you have successfully blocked Candy Crush Saga from your Facebook Account. You can still play the game on your Mobile however. That is why this guide isn’t only for Candy Crush haters, If you like to play Candy Crush but don’t want it to send invites to your friends, You can block it in your Facebook Account and still play it (well I think you can still play it without Facebook integration, Can you?).
Anyways do share this guide with your friends who play and those who hate Candy Crush Saga. It will help you a lot! 😉
