Facebook quiz applications are really annoying to me. Not only Facebook quiz apps, but also this spam messages such as ” I liked whoo blah blah and stuff ” which are spreading virally on facebook. You can block all this with the help of single extension for Firefox, Opera and Chrome.
F.B. (Fluff Busting) Purity is an anti spam, facebook tool, in the form of a browser addon that alters your facebook homepage to show only the most relevant information to you, by filtering out the annoying and irrelevant messages in your news feed / stream, such as application spam etc, and also giving you the option to hide the boxes you dont want to see on the right hand side of the homepage.
It automatically hides application messages and also lets you hide messages like “Became a friend of”,”Joined a group”,”Became a fan of”,”Is attending event” type messages, which are referred to as “Extras”. Here is the list of options that FBP gives you to hide in Facebook : Became friends with, Liked page (became a fan), Joined a group, Attending an event, Changed profile picture, Changed relationship, Tagged in, likes or commented on photo, Commented on or likes link, Commented on group wall and many more.
