How Many Facebook Apps Have you Blocked?

I just looked and shocked to see that I have blocked 158 apps from showing up in my news feed.

How many have you blocked?

after you login to facebook scroll all the way to the bottom of the page and there is an edit button there on the bottom middle. Once you click edit that pop-up window will open and tell you. It's also how you can unblock apps that you no longer want to ignore.

I used a greasemonkey script called FFixer. It can be set to block all application feeds and a number of other things. The coolest thing it does is allow you to mouse over pics and they will enlarge for easy viewing without ever having to click. They then shrink back once you move the mouse away.

I blocked two more apps today and went to see what my new total is...

To my shock it's down to 152... my guess is that Facebook or the creators of these apps must be deleting them as I didn't remove any and I've certainly blocked more since April.
