  • Primarily I use FB for socializing with my friends. Personally, I dont click on on any applications. As you said correctly, the problem with most of these applications is spam, Also, i dont want to grant access of my personal info to these third party application owners.

  • Aiman, I agree with Irune on this. Apps which are unwanted eat all your wall space and even your concentration. Some could be good like a reminder or for sharing stuff but most actually are not required by everyone. Only like minded people are happy sharing the app. Most apps are good and are a good source of keeping yourself occupied in them- though.
