Today is Israel’s Memorial Day (Yom Hazikaron), and tonight we begin celebrating Independence Day (Yom Ha’Atzmaut). While I know it would be more appropriate to post on that topic, I’ve already seen a bunch of great posts by others so instead, I’ll post some mildly useful advice on how to avoid seeing your Facebook news feed fill up with so many posts about stupid games.

Please accept my apologies if you play one of those Farmville, Mafia or other FB games, but for those of us who don’t, seeing your updates several times a day can get annoying. This advice was posted by one of my FB friends:

anyone sick of seeing game updates in their news feed….scroll your mouse over to the right of one of those postings and the word “hide” will appear, click it and then click the name of the game (i.e. Mafia Wars) on the list and they will be hidden from you from now on 😉

There, now isn’t that better than hiding all posts from a friend who overdid their quota of boring news, which used to be the only way to skip seeing that crap.
