Block and Stop Candy Crush Requests on Facebook

Finally it became too much for me to handle and I had to look for a way to stop Candy Crush requests on Facebook. My friends have been asking this question since long. But I never really bothered about the notifications that would come all the time from games like Candy Crush and Candy Crush Saga and Candy Crush Soda and what not! It is really irritating to keep receiving tens of such requests —especially when you’re not interested.

There are a large number of FB users wish to block Candy Crush notifications and requests. And sometimes it gets way too much. I have played Candy Crush and I like this game but I play it only when I have time. I don’t play such games for killing time. Professional blogging is a serious business. You can not afford to waste time online with such games. Those who are addicted to this game keep on sending help requests. Candy Crush requests became such nuisance that a large number of jokes and memes have cropped up on Internet.
