Facebook’s ‘Instant Personalization’ feature is to be switched on today, allowing the walls between the social network and the world to be broken through for a seamless experience for all.
Only certain sites can access this, and permissions need to be granted to do this. However, to be on the safe side, it is better simply to turn it off completely.
- Log into Facebook. In the top right hand corner, click Account, and then Privacy Settings.
- Under the heading Apps and websites, select Edit your settings.
- Under the heading Instant personalization, select Edit settings. You may see a popup called ‘Understanding instant personalization’. Just hit Close.
- At the very bottom of the page, simply untick the box labeled Enable instant personalization on partner websites. This will instantly turn off partner websites accessing your data.
