How To Remove Scam Links From Your Facebook Wall, News Feed, Events And Liked Pages List

How To Remove Scam Links From Your Facebook Wall, News Feed, Events And Liked Pages List
Removal of facebook’s scam links goes beyond just deleting the offending Wall Post from your Facebook Profile. Make sure you remove yourself from any fake Events List and remove any fake “Like” from the “Liked Pages List” too. If you submitted any telephone numbers to a Survey Scam then you must contact your phone service provider immediately and inform them to stop any bogus charges. If you downloaded any files, games or software then you need to run a complete system scan using updated anti-virus, anti-spyware and anti-malware software (…you do have those, dont you?).
Anyway, read on for the quick steps to clean up your Facebook Account below:

1. Remove Fake Facebook EVENTS

You need to cancel your Reservation for the fake event by going to the Events section as shown below. Then please notify your friends not to accept any fake event invitations they may get via yourself:

    Can’t remove “Dad walk in on daughter…” from the Liked Pages List…
    There’s no delete-button in the settings.
    And now? O.o

      There is no delete-button….instead you should look for a button named “Remove Page”. Follow these instructions carefully:

      1. Navigate to your profile wall by clicking the “Profile” link at the top of your facebook home page.

      2. Once on your profile page click “Info” right below your profile picture, then Scroll down to the heading “Activities and Interests” and click the “Edit” link to the right.

      3. At the bottom of the Edit Activities and Interests page click the “Show Other Pages” link.

      4. The “Other Pages You Like” Dialog Box will open and from there you can scroll through your list of liked pages and remove the ones you don’t want by clicking the “Remove Page” Button.

    Hi there! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog. Is it hard to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about setting up my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any points or suggestions? Cheers
