Older Facebook Apps May Still Have Unfettered Access to Your Data
We've covered how to check your privacy settings before, but it bears repeating here. Click on "privacy settings" under the "account" menu. Toward the bottom of the page, you'll see a link for 'Apps and Websites,' under which you'll find all the information you need, including the ability to remove apps. To check an app's permissions, simply click on the name. If you have an older version of an app installed, and still want to use it, simply remove the app and re-add it. Many apps, like Digg and YouTube, have newer versions whose access to your data is much more restricted. They haven't been updated automatically, though; you'll have to manually remove the old versions first.
