Stuff that occurs to me

All of my 'how to' posts are tagged here. The most popular posts are about blocking and private accounts on Twitter, also the science communication jobs list. None of the science or medical information I might post to this blog should be taken as medical advice (I'm not medically trained).

Think of this blog as a sort of nursery for my half-baked ideas hence 'stuff that occurs to me'.

All the applications I've ever blocked on Facebook

I hadn't realised that Facebook kept a list of all the applications I've blocked, but of course - when you think about it - they'd have to. Since I discovered that whenever a friend adds an application it immediately can see whatever my friend sees (ie, pretty much everything) I've made sure that I block them and limit what they can see. Because I use the basic applications (links, groups, notes, photos) I can't eliminate what applications see entirely.

Facebook's great and I can't really complain about having information on the internet, but it's the principle of the thing ;)

So... here are all the apps I've blocked.

  2. As far as I'm aware the method for blocking any application is the same as for any other. You need to click on the application - this will usually take you to an 'allow access' page but you need to click again on the NAME of the application (ie this is a two step process).

    Once you've clicked on its name you're taken to the application's own page (where people can leave comments and you can see how many people use it / are fans etc. On the top left hand side are the magic words 'Block Application'. Click and enjoy the peace that will ensue, albeit briefly until your friends download some other bit of crap. Good luck :)

Comment policy: I enthusiastically welcome corrections and I entertain polite disagreement ;) Because of the nature of this blog it attracts a LOT - 5 a day at the moment - of spam comments (I write about spam practices,misleading marketing and unevidenced quackery) and so I'm more likely to post a pasted version of your comment, removing any hyperlinks.

Comments written in ALL CAPS LOCK will be deleted and I won't publish any pro-homeopathy comments, that ship has sailed I'm afraid (it's nonsense).
