Facebook/YoWorld settings

Postby SLEEPY KoY (160149118) » Tue Jun 12, 2018 1:20 pm

So I guess when you hover over my name on Facebook-- where it usually says where you work or go to school etc.--, it now says "Played YoWorld" with a button there to play the game. I don't need people I work with knowing which games I play God forbid one of them follows me there. How do I hide the apps I use from everyone? I've looked through the settings on Facebook and it's pretty confusing. Thank you for any help!

I dont see this button...but you can probably edit your privacy settings to hide anything on your profile. Use the "Only Me" lock.

If you click on the Apps and Games button under "More" you can edit out any apps you dont want visible.

I'll try your advice, thanks so much!

I can't find any of these buttons. I assumed the function would be somewhere under settings but the closest thing I can find is "Apps & Websites" but that seems to control websites you log in with Facebook credentials rather than the actual apps on Facebook like YoWorld. I'm so lost. I'm going to keep looking

I just noticed this too after reading your post. I don't seem to be able to turn it off either. I think I'll send in a ticket to find out why. I don't have coworkers as facebook friends, but it doesn't seem right to put this notice with my name.

I just took another look around my profile and I still dont see that YoWorld button. I have my page locked down pretty tight, so maybe tighten your Facebook security settings more?

:idea:

I blocked my games from showing ages ago, don't ask me how because I forget. But it can be done.

Interesting, I just checked and the "playing YoWorld" label is gone now. All's well that ends well, but I do wonder...
