Already fed up of annoying app and game invites from friends on Facebook? There is some good news for you. You can now block all such irritating requests and reminders.

And that's just a click of a few buttons away now, so let's get started.

Invitations to install apps or join games are the number one most frustrating feature of Facebook. You could be bombarded with invites on a daily basis, and most apps make it quite easy to spam an entire friends list with annoying alerts.

Now you can put a lid on this nightmare.

Open your Settings screen on the Facebook Web client and click on the "Blocking" tab on the left sidebar.

Under the heading "Block App Invites", type the name of the person on your friends list who has been pestering you for long enough now with unwarranted invites. It's done!

You can use this same page to block specific apps from contacting you entirely, and even prevent your friends from sending you event invitations.
