Some of them on the main wall page, some on the side bar, boxes, info page, and some even link as tabs in the top tab bar of the facebook profile page. You might want to remove the from there, or any other place.
In this post you will find answer to your query: How to remove tabs on facebook wall.
One option to remove facebook tabs is to simply delete the particular app, but there are other options available. We will discuss in this article how to remove the application on facebook wall / tab bar, boxes etc, and make your facebook experience better and less irritative.
First of all login to your facebook account. On your profile page, you will see any extra tab in your facebook profile page tab bar , that you want to remove.
You can see the extra tab in tab bar on my facebook profile page, named “are you a pirate, ninja or cowboy“, i want to keep this application on my facebook account, but not on the tab bar. So here is how we will remove it from there.
Goto top blue bar of your facebook profile page, and mouse over “settings” it will open drop down options, select “applicaiton settings” from there.
This will take you to the applicaitons settings page. These are the applications that you see on various places on facebook, including the wall, tabs in tab bar, side bar, boxes etc. These are the applications whose settings you need to edit in order to get rid of the tabs created by them and removing those tabs from your facebook wall. The list is not complete when the page opens, you might not be able to see the application that you wanted to remove / edit from the facebook tab bar, wall, side bar or from the boxes. Why? coz its showing some of the recently added / used applications only.To view the complete list of the applications, from the drop down on the top right of the list, select “authorized” this will show all the applications that are authorized to be on your facebook profile.
After getting the complete list now, find out the name of the applicaiton that you want to remove particularly from the facebook wall, tab bar, or facebook side bar, boxes etc.
Once you spot that irritating app, simply click the link “edit settings” in front of it and it will open a edit box with options.
This is the box for the applicaiton “are you a pirate, ninj, or cowboy” in my case. Its settings have it added in tab and info section of my facebook profile. but i want it to be remove from the tab bar area. So i will simply click “remove” in front of the tab. And it will change from remove to Available / add, because it is now removed from my facebook profile tabs.
So this has now removed the applicaiton from my facebook profile page tabs bar. Phew!
So now this applicaiton is no more in my facebook profile tab bar. You can remove the application from boxes and info section of your facebook profile the same way!
