Hide Recent Activity on Facebook

13 Dec

After some frustration and hundreds of clicks, I realize that facebook is no longer giving you the option to hide recent activity as a part of their new privacy settings. Not only is this really annoying, but it seems like a basic setting to give users of facebook. I joined a thread in the help section of facebook several days ago, but so far it’s just been complaining. Hopefully it’s something facebook will correct soon, because it’s annoying to display the recent activity on your wall.

Have you figured out how to do it? Got any other facebook tips?

    Apologies for bumping a 1-year old thread.

    I’m starting a new website, and I have a similar issue too.

    Not trying to hide any facebook posts or likes, but I have been testing the facebook Likes and Shares with my “test” post and pages.

    Now, these tests posts starts to appear in my “Recent Activity” feed even though I’ve removed the pages.

    Is there a way to prevent these from showing up at my “Recent Activity” plugin?

    I’m using WordPress.

    Please take a look at http://SingaporeanLifeStyle.com

    The “Recent Activity” plugin is on the Right side of my website. They randomly appears too. So sometimes i need to keep refreshing the homepage to see the “activity” that was “supposedly deleted”.

    Need to stop them from showing.

    Appreciate any help.
