I always love to try new applications on Facebook and I do not like it when they ask you to allow wall posts and information. This seems irritating at times. I don’t always want them to be displayed on the home page. Earlier I could disable the applications but now, after yesterday’s meeting Facebook has rolled on new features. Other than Group feature and Downloads, Facebook has come up with Application Dashboard.
You can see the image above is the Application Dashboard of my profile.
We can make changes in our applications by selecting any one of them from Application Dashboard.
With the Application Dashboard you can:
- View when did you last use that application.
- The information that application is using.
- Manage if you want that application to be published as post on your wall or not.
- Stop it by accessing your data at any time.
- Remove that application all together.
Phew 🙂 lots of points, eh! Now with this increased visibility people can control the Facebook usage and manage the way any application is displayed on their Facebook wall. This will really be helpful for people like me who love to use Facebook applications or games. I just do not want to bother my friends with all the updates of my games or applications if they do not use them.
According to Mark Zuckerberg people should have a control over their information, if they want they can choose to share a specific information with only special friends. 🙂 I am going to tweak the new features now and improve my Facebook profile a bit. What are you waiting for? Go ahead and tell me what all did you do. 🙂
