When facebook released their new timeline layout, the path you must take to remove junk applications from your facebook profile has also changed, so I thought I would post the new steps to help out anyone in need. It is still fairly easy to do, so lets get to it.
And select privacy settings
Scroll down to Apps and Websites and click Edit Settings
Select “Remove unwanted or spammy apps”
Now we just need to select the application
and then remove it
And that’s it, now just repeat step 4 until you’ve removed all of the apps you don’t want.
I have updated this blog post for the new Timeline layout, you can find new post here.
I see enough of these to make this a dedicated post. This is going to be another rather simple post, just basic descriptions and pictures.
Click “apps” on the left rail of your profile to pull up your most used apps.
Your next step is to click “more” to open up a more detailed list of apps.
Your “more detailed list of apps” only really shows the ones you used most recently. From here, you want to click “Remove unwanted or spammy apps,” as this will bring up a full list of everything set up on your profile
Lets say you don’t want Graffiti, which I didn’t, all you have to do is click any of the text to bring up the application panel.
Here you can see exactly what this app has access to, to remove it, you simply have to click “Remove App,” you will get a confirmation box, but you are essentially done. Rinse and repeat step 4 and 5 until you have removed everything you don’t like.
It wasn’t for me, so I searched finally came up with a solution. Since the solution is rather techie, I figured I would throw it up on here sans-technobabble.
The first step is to figure out your username, the easiest way to do this is to see what is set after the slash on your profile page. Remember this, you will use it later on. Note that this could also be a number, you will use the number later on in place of a name.
The next step, we start to create the account. Go to your Adium account window by selecting Adium from the menu bar and selecting preferences. Go to add a new account – like you would for any other account – and select Jabber.
I thought I should throw this out there since this will probably become more and more prominent on planes over the next few years. Please remember that internet on planes are just as secure as using internet at any other hotspot, and just because you pay for it, doesn’t mean you should be doing banking or anything else secure on it. There is a possibility that other travelers will be able to see what you are surfing – and not just the person sitting next to you either.
Also, from a more technical side: please remember to remove any DNS settings you have set up on your laptop, otherwise the internet will never work.
Enjoy your flight,
