Quick Tip: Manage Your Social Media Permissions

One of the great attractions of social media and the cloud is the ease with which we can combine tools and expand functionality. With a few clicks, you can link social networking profiles from two different sites, or use your login information from one service to access another. Perhaps you have Twitter feeding automatically to your LinkedIn profile, or you’ve let Facebook access your Goodreads account.  Unfortunately, this convenience comes with a cost: it’s easy to lose track of your permissions.

Enter MyPermissions.org.

This simple website provides direct links to the permissions management page on popular sites including Facebook, Twitter, Google, and LinkedIn.  Just click on the icons and you’ll see which apps and services have access to your data.
