Cleaning up in Facebook

I was just doing some tidying up in Facebook. I suddenly realized that I hadn't done a blog entry for today and that is why I am here now.

I was trying at first in Facebook to remove one video that I connected to somehow. I never did manage to remove it but found way more applications that I had authorized than I realized I had. And there were some to which I had give extra permissions. I have since removed a lot of extra permissions and probably over a hundred authorizations. Does it help? I don't know but it feels better to try to regain at least a little privacy.

Facebook still has its advantages and I'm glad that I joined it but I think it's good to step back once in a while and check that we're not allowing too much of our information to go to too many places without us even realizing it.
