The Where I’ve Been Facebook application is a pretty cool app. I installed it a while back and haven’t really updated it in a while, but I’m a fan of seeing data visually displayed in a smart way — and this app definitely does that.
What I was surprised to see today when I logged into facebook was that my feed/profile had an update from that app:
It states “Raanan just started using the new version of Where I’ve Been. Raanan has a shiny new Where I’ve Been map. View his map or create your own.”
What’s odd is that to the best of my knowledge I hadn’t clicked on any updates, hadn’t used the app in while, and never gave permission for this type of ‘spam update’. I looked through the various settings of the app but could not find any option to turn off this type of messaging in the future.
