    Hi, Facebook keeps throwing Suggested posts & apps at me , I've tried looking at ways to prevent this, and read many bits of info, but most relate to Windows not IPad. If I had the same problems on my desktop I could probably deal with this, but cannot figure a way of stopping facebook sending me this crap on my IPad. Please help

    As far as I can tell, there is no way to get this "crap" out of your Facebook. It's Facebook's way of advertising (they sell advertisers the ability to show you those suggested posts). So, it's ads and our payment for the "privilege' of using Facebook.

    So, no, there's no way to stop them as they are ads. Now, I'd love to be proven wrong (because they annoy me also). But, I think we're stuck with them...

    Thanks Marilyn for your thoughts, I think the main irritation is the Apps & suggested Posts you cannot hide, there are some which can be hidden but even so it makes the Facebook page so long. Hopefully someone may find a way, if not I might consider getting rid of FB.

    Hooray, I've stopped getting all those suggested Apps & Pages on my Newsfeeds. I just wondered if it was anything to do with the Facebook App, so I removed it from my IPad.
    I then signed in via the Web Facebook login, it worked I haven't had no Suggested Apps or Pages on my Newsfeeds since. However, the adds still appear on the right hand side of the page but I can live with that.
    So anyone who is fed up with Suggested Apps or Pages on my Newsfeeds get rid of the Facebook App.
