How do I hide a recommendation on Facebook?

So I got a surprise this morning.  We had a "recommendation" that I wanted to hide from the general public.  Hiding a facebook recommendation, deleting a facebook recommendation, or removing a facebook recommendation is easy.  It seemed difficult at first simply because the user interface is just a little different.

Initially you will see the offending recommendation (generally just a nonsense post that a spammer put out there).  You will see  "Public" "Hidden Recommendations" links at the top of the post.  Those are not relevant for what we are trying to do.

  1. Click on the drop-down arrow.
  2. You will see two options...
    1. Hide Recommendation.
    2. Report
  3. Choose "Hide Recommendation".
...*warning...once you "Hide" the recommendation you cannot get it back unless you install the "Recommendations Facebook App".
