MyPermissions: Web Service That Clean Apps Permissions from Facebook, Twitter & More

There is simply no denying the fact that social media has pretty much taken over our lives. It is not exactly unheard of if one has signed-up with multiple social media accounts. I myself have one for Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and even Flickr. Micromanaging all of these accounts can be quite a daunting task, especially if you want to do a bit of housekeeping. Well today, we have a free service for you that you can use to cleanup your various social media accounts.

Having all these social media accounts means that one way or another, you have installed or granted permissions to use a certain app. Whether it is for playing games in Facebook or Flickr app that lets you upload images from your iPhone, chances are high that you have granted permissions to most of them. There are even some apps that you have approved once and have never used again. If you have been using a social media platform for years, then it is safe to say that there could be hundreds of such apps that you have granted permission to.

You want to do some housecleaning by removing such apps but do you even know how to? For example, with Facebook's overly convoluted settings, do you even know exactly how to remove the permissions for apps? Well luckily, there is a new web service that may just help you.

Introducing MyPermissions.Org.

If you click on the link above, you will be brought to a page with the headline that reads: "Start 2012 by Taking 2 Minutes to Clean Your Apps Permissions". Just below you will see a couple of icons from popular social media websites such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo!, LinkedIN, Dropbox, Instagram and Flickr. What this web-based service does is that once you click an icon, it will take you to the page where you can manage the permissions you have granted for each social network. It is as simple as that but it is rather very convenient.

You know for a fact that there are multiple apps that you would want to delete from each of your account. So we suggest that you start the year with some housekeeping. So go ahead and use the website for your convenience. [via RedmondPie]
