Happy New Year! Time to clean up your Facebook!
Every time you sign up for a new Facebook app, another company gets access to your information, your contacts, your posts, everything. More importantly, another company gets to start advertising at your friends through you. Yuck.
Here is an easy way to slow down this ceaseless parade of ads and privacy violations: remove unused Facebook apps from your account. Just click on this link and remove any apps that you don’t use.
If you aren’t ready to remove an app, you can still use the link above to change the “Visibility of app”. If you change it from “Public” to “Only me”, then your friends won’t see ads, Farmville updates and such, but the company still sees your info.
