Facebook: Remove or Delete Application

   Posted by David Kirk in Internet

In Facebook adding application after application is very easy. Figuring out how to remove an Facebook application, however, can be difficult. These step-by-step directions show how to delete an application from your profile in the new version of Facebook. Screencast of this process is included as well.

I like the “new” Facebook design, but a lot of users are having difficulty figuring how how to remove an application once it is installed in the profile.

1. Log into your Facebook account

2. Click the Facebook Menu button at the bottom left hand corner of the screen. The menu will appear. Click the edit link

Facebook Applications Menu

3. A listing of applications will appear. Select the group of applications from which you would like to view. Selecting the Authorized link should display all your applications.

Display Facebook Applications

4. Click the Remove link for the application you wish to delete.

Remove Link Facebook

5. Confirm by pressing the remove link in the dialog box that appears.

Confirm Removal of Facebook App


Bye, bye Application!

    Thanks Davak!

    It worked for most of them, though I guess that the ones made by Facebook are not erasable.

    I have a quick question. If I delete some applications (mafia wars, farmtown, etc) will I still remain as a member of my friends clan, farmtown neighbor, etc? I would like to delete those applications but feel bad if I drop out of their neightbors etc as they only have a few.

    I desperately need some assistance. I removed an iframe wrapper app from my page but discovered that the tabs for it are still there…and clicking on them, brings me to the app page…minus it’s functionality. I can’t even reinstall it to bring back its functionality because it’s no longer listing that page as a page to choose from. I would really appreciate your advice here as their support is not answering me.
