You may have heard Google+ is allowing custom URLs. (I’ll assume you’ve heard of Google+) Facebook just opened the floodgates to custom URLs. One morning they just let you grab whatever URL you wanted.
If your Twitter account is sending DM spam, take the following steps:
1) Close Tweetdeck, Seesmic, Hootsuite or any cell apps that check your Twitter account. 2) Log into Twitter directly on the Web at http://twitter.com
3) Open “Settings” (It is on the top menu.) (Update: It’s now selected by clicking the menu pull down selected at the Twitter head & shoulders icon.)
4) See if you have a tab labeled “Connections.” (Update: the tab is now called “Apps.”) If so, click it and deauthorize everything you find there.
There are some apps in the new Facebook that will post your every move to your timeline. Bugging your friends to hell. There are some that rarely send messages, but do you really want your friends to see you’ve wasted 2 hours playing Gardens of Time?
