Facebook App settings revamp makes it easier to unlink unwanted Apps

Facebook has updated it's Privacy settings again for users, making it easier to control which apps may be linked to the account. Now those apps are also split off into sections for which they serve, such as being used to login, or for personalization preference (which toggles the displaying of reviews from your Facebook friends when you log in to a site like Amazon). 

There's also a new control for the privacy settings for things you post using old Facebook mobile apps that don't have an inline audience selector (mostly outdated versions of Facebook for Mobile) that can be toggled from "public" to other group lists.

Apps are no longer just a (long) hard to understand list.

Head over to the App settings page to check out which apps are linked to your account, you may be surprised at what you find.

Earlier this month, the company started rolling out a "privacy check up" pop-up to (hopefully) educate their users on the implications of sharing certain information and posts. In any case, this is a welcome update as Facebook continues its quest to make users' lives easier to manage through the social network.
