If you’re like me, you’ve been inundated with app requests on Facebook from an app called BranchOut. Supposedly it’s the “next LinkedIn”, but it has more than a few skeptics (me being one of them).
The biggest problem I have with BranchOut is that it spams me with constant invites from people I’m friends with on Facebook. After my phone buzzed nonstop today with those invites, I got fed up and decided to write a tutorial on how to block Branch Out requests on Facebook.
Go to the Main Menu to your Facebook Privacy Settings
Scroll down and click on “Manage Blocking” in the Block People and Apps section.
Scroll down to the Block Apps section, and start typing in BranchOut in the box. When it shows up, click on it and it will automatically be added to your list of blocked apps.
Breathe a sigh of relief!
What do you think of BranchOut? Do you use it? Do you think it’s the next LinkedIn? Are you as annoyed with it as I am? Let me know in the comment section.
