If you use Firefox, look up Facebook Purity.

 

You run this add-on with Grease Monkey and it will hide all that garbage along with the BuddyA is now friends with BuddyK.

please add me to your mafia wars, farmville, fishville, PCville, and groups like I don't care about your group, Epic Beard Man rocks, and When I was your age I had to blow in video game cartridges to make them work. :)

THANKS FACEBOOK!!! Those notifications were super annoying. Sometimes, when I log-on, I get super excited...like, is it a party invitation to someone I haven't seen in a while? ....then, only to find out it's just simply someone wanting me to join in Mafia-wars.

THANK YOU SWEET MERCIFUL JESUS!!

 

Now get rid of them in the news feed.

...and preferably on my friends' pages themselves.. I just want to see what my friends are up to.. not the apps they're using.

You can hide them in your news feed, but unfortunately you can't do the same on your friends' pages.

Yeah, we could hide 'em. However they come right back when someone else uses said app or in my case, they're too many for me to hide all...

There is an option to hide all news feed items from a certain app; makes my life a lot easier.

But you still have to do it on an app-by-app basis.  That's an unreasonable expectation.
