Facebook App Cleanup Reminder

Most of us have been on the cruise ship we call Facebook for quite a while, which means you will have accumulated what we refer to as Facebook barnacles on your account.

The barnacles are all those apps that have attached themselves to your profile whenever you checkout a new app or try that new game and end up never using it again.

Even when you don't ever use these apps, you still gave them permission to connect to your account below the 'waterline'.

If you've never take a look, you'll be shocked to see how many apps haveyou your permission to access your profile info.

It’s time for a little clean up, so take the time to review the list of apps that have your permission to access your profile.

Click on the icon in the upper right corner, then on Settings to get to the 'Apps' section.

Once you see the list, just start tapping on the 'X' next to all those old apps you don't use anymore…your profile info will no longer be accessible in the future for those apps.
