Removing the application
As strange as it might seem, some Fan Page administrators have been complaining lately about problems removing RSS Graffiti. It is strange because removing an application is a standard Facebook procedure, it is completely independent of any application and it should be bullet proof and just work.
If you are facing such problem please read on for some insight on what is going on and how you can resolve your issue.
First make sure the application is removed from the Fan Page (not just your Facebook Profile)
Sometimes people are tricked into thinking that removing an application from a Facebook Profile, also automatically removes the application from the Fan Pages the user administers. Of course this is not the case. Profiles are independent of Fan Pages and that is as designed by Facebook. So first of all make sure the application is removed from the Fan Page.
To do that:
- Go to the Fan Page
- Click “Edit Page”
- Find the RSS Graffiti application listed along with the other applications you added on the Fan Page and
- Click on the “Remove Application” link
If you think that the application has been removed from (or never been added to) the Fan Page but it still posts, please just check once more. Sometimes Fan Pages have more than one administrators. You might have removed the application from the Fan Page but another administrator might have added it there.
If you are certain that the application has been removed from the Fan Page but it still posts then please follow the instructions in “How to disable posting on a Fan Page" to make sure you disable posting. Some insight on how can an application post on Fan Page even if it seems to be removed can also be found in that post.
