  1. FYI: Questions app is not available on my Facebook because I use https connection. I was given the option to switch to http if I wanted to use it.

  2. hi ashish, great article, really comprehensive, thanks! 🙂

    btw i just found out a nice solution to hiding facebook questions from your newsfeed. The solution is a browser addon called “FB Purity” just install the addon, which gives you lots of options for hiding stuff you dont want to see on Facebook, then enter the following text “ask friend” into the Custom Text Filter, on the add-on’ options screen. That will hide all FB questions and their corresponding answers from your feed 🙂

    You can get FB Purity here: http://www.fbpurity.com

  3. BTW i forgot to mention FB Purity is compatible with Firefox, Chrome, Safari and Opera.

  4. The site already has enough credibility on its own, check out the reviews in The Washington Post, CNET, Lifehacker etc for instance.

  5. its also got over 11,000 fans on facebook:
    is that enough credibility for you? 🙂

  6. James: Thanks for the link! I will be trying it out shortly!

    I usually just hide things that annoy me on Facebook, but sounds like Purity is worth checking out.
