This is a post from Pocket Your Dollars’ reader Amber who graciously provided the screenshot and a step-by-step process of how to remove unwanted applications from Facebook. Thanks, Amber!
Whether you are a newbie or seasoned couponer, we have all come across (or will stumble upon) coupons and special offers on Facebook. Unfortunately, we are often required to install applications which grant companies limited access to our accounts in order to get them – a reason many of us may turn down these coupons and special offers.
Of course the thought of creating a separate account for this reason probably crossed many of your minds (as it did mine); however, per Facebook rules, only one account is allowed per person. So, I guess we will have to continue to reluctantly click the “I Agree” button and let the applications install.
But (and yes, there is a but) we can easily remove these unwanted applications by following these steps:
- Click “Account” in the upper right corner of your Facebook homepage (see screenshot above)
- Click on “Application Settings”
- You will see a list of applications you have installed on your account
- Click on the X for the ones you no longer want on your account and they are gone!
Side note: Of course, if you’re not already a “liker” of our Pocket Your Dollars page, why not meet up with us on Facebook today?!
Your turn: Are you more likely to take advantage of Facebook coupons or special offers now that you know the applications can easily be removed?
