Facebook subscriptions… I don’t want ‘em


Facebook, in their ever increasing attempt to make everyone’s information right in your face, enter the “Subscription”. 

Drum roll please.

Is this a good thing?

If I were a product or a witty on air personality? Sure

Perhaps even if I were not so witty or even a personality… maybe… if I wanted my words to be broadcast in the new transmission medium called the web…

Ok, it isn’t so new… the web that is…

<queue “The Dark Side of the Moon”>  and the lunatics are on the grass…

So get rid of ‘em.

Turn ‘em off…

Step 1: Click on the little down triangle by HOME

Step 2: Click on Privacy Settings

Step  3: Click on Edit Settings in the How You Connect Section image

Step 4:  Click on the Subscribers Tab link in the How You Connect Dialog Box – by the way, the text here may be different from what you see.  First time through it was something like “to change settings in your subscriptions…”
