    For readers’ information, this means you can’t have any applications external to Facebook (e.g. Causes). There doesn’t seem to be a way to tell Facebook, “I don’t want to hear from any application I haven’t already joined,” which would be the obvious way to cut out what most users would consider “spam”.
