Re: Check your apps
@Laurianne logging into an app or website using your Facebook credentials is just so easy since you don't need to remember a new username/password, but I'm always hesitant to do it. That doesn't deter me from using new apps, but I'll just choose to log in a different way.

Re: Check your apps
Facebook has been tweaking settings here and there, but this is the first redesign the Apps Settings page has seen in years.

Check your apps
Good time to go in and make sure you don't have any old FB apps hanging around. I am curious how many of you have simply said no to any more new FB apps because it is complicated to read all the user agreements?
