Some of your Facebook friends like games. A lot. Some of your Facebook friends want you to like games a lot too. And you know this because they've sent you so many Facebook game requests that you are considering unfriending them just to make the onslaught stop. 

We at iPhone Life don't want to tell you who to be friends with, but you don't actually have to unfriend the Facebook gamers you know in order to make the game requests stop. Here's what you can do instead:

First, open up the Facebook app and tap the More icon in the lower right corner.

Next, tap Account Settings and then Notifications.


Under How You Get Notifications, tap Mobile Push.

Tap the boxes next to Application Requests and Application Invites to uncheck and stop receiving game and app requests and invitations.
