How to Stop or Block a Facebook Application From Automatically Posting on Your Wall

By on in Facebook | 6 Comments

So far I have told you that it’s not a problem of having huge applications added to your Facebook account. Because we can use these Facebook applications for many interesting purposes. But while using different kinds of Facebook applications, we have to face many problems. That day one of my friends asked me, “Some facebook applications are continuously posting on my wall without knowing me. How can I restrict or stop those applications?” Humm, Spamming is the most irritative issue here. Because many Facebook applications are used to generate random random questions, quizzes etc and continuously post them on your wall.

Let’s See the Tutorial on How to Restrict or Block any Facebook Application From Auto Posting on Your Facebook Wall :

    New Facebook Questions is now available to everyone to use, I have not been able to find a way to stop it appearing on my wall from friends posts. So other than removing it each time my friends post it from their own accounts it seems to be intrusive without any way to stop it, there is not a “remove this” choice in the click to remove x button.
    Do you know of any way to stop it appearing as I would dearly love to get rid of this annoying application they have again forced on us. I have removed it from the left bar by clicking on the X but it does not stop friends post appearing.

      Dear Linda, thanks for your question. After looking for your solution, I didn’t find the perfect solution for you. But one thing you can do, go http://www.facebook.com/settings/?tab=privacy then click “Customize settings“. At custom settings page unmark the “Enable” button at Things others share >> Friends can post on my Wall. Thinking it will help you.

    ex. What does ” Access my data any time ” permission do? i’m really curious about this.
