How many Facebook apps do you block?

Today I was reading an article in PC Magazine titled “50 Percent Will Abandon Facebook for Google+, Poll Finds” and one quote resonated with me:

Seriously, Facebook was already on my bad side. One word: appspam. If the only way there is for me to cut off all the FrontierVille and CityVille and all those other things that are clogging up my wall is to turn off all apps, it’s a flawed model—the same flawed formula that made MySpace into the laughing stock of the social networking world

In order to keep my news feed clean, blocking Facebook apps has been an endless struggle: as soon as a notification from a new app shows up in my news feed, it gets added to be banlist. So how big has my list become?

270 blocked Apps on Facebook

That’s 270 apps all up – do you want to know what they are?
