Facebook apps definitely provide a great way for all to pass some leisure time in the most prominent social networking site.

Customizing Your Privacy Settings

Under the privacy settings part of your Facebook profile, you will get the option of editing the settings of “Ads, Apps and Websites.” Here, you can control what sort of information the different Facebook apps visited by your friends can fetch from your personal profile. A good option will be to uncheck most of the boxes for better safety.

Deleting the Unnecessary Apps

On the left pane of your Facebook homepage, you will see a link to the App Center. Go to my apps from there and you will see all the Facebook apps that you use or may have used in past being listed over there. You can either manually review all the apps or sort those by last used option and delete the ones that you haven’t used in the recent past.

Clear Your Timeline

When you see an app posting unnecessary stuffs on your Facebook timeline, just mark it as spam and the social networking giant will take care of the rest. If you don’t want to mark it spam right away, you can just hide the update from your timeline as well.

Block App Requests

Aren’t all these app requests troublesome to manage? Rather than manually deleting the app requests one by one, you can easily mark to never receive an app request from a person and things will become easier for you.
