  • Did you know that by using Facebook, you give the site the right to use your name in ads?
  • You can opt out of Facebook attaching your name to any ads.
  • Click the gear icon in the top-right corner of your Facebook profile. Go to Account Settings and select Ads. Click "Edit" in the Ads & Friends section and choose "No one" in the drop down menu.
  • While you're there, you should adjust the settings in the Third Party Sites tab, too. This will stop the same thing from happening if Facebook starts using your profile on other sites.
  • Your friends might still see your name on some sites that have a Facebook widget. To stop this, click the gear icon again and select Privacy settings.
    In the Apps menu, look for "Apps others use" and click Edit Settings. Uncheck every box that is checked.
  • While you're there, click Edit Settings in the Instant personalization tab. Close the Window that pops up. Then, uncheck the box that says "Enable instant personalization on partner websites" and then click confirm.
  • This will help protect your identity from ads

I just noticed under the "Security" tab you see active sessions. Apparently I had active sessions in Los Angeles a couple weeks ago, even though I am in San Diego and haven't been up to LA in maybe a year. Make sure to 'End Session' on that if you find something that doesn't belong.
