Facebook suspends a number of popular applications
Facebook has suspended a number of Facebook applications which break the limits of allowed user interaction. According to TechCrunch, the popular social networking site has given a digital smack on the wrist to the Top Friends, Social Me and Super Wall applications.
Each of the said applications were allegedly sending a large number of spam emails to subscribers. But it’s not all bad news for fans of the popular apps, as Facebook hasn’t closed them down completely. Instead it has suspended the viral components such as notifications and invitations.
From the user’s point of view it’s a positive move by Facebook, as it attempts to regulate the amount of junk mail generated by apps which will mean less cluttered inboxes for everyone. Slide and Rock You, the producers of the suspended applications, are reported to be in talks with Facebook on clearing up a number of problem areas.
