I came across this very helpful article on MSNBC on how to fix a variety of common problems on Facebook.
The article addresses a variety of issues such as:
-Failing to review your approved apps
-Controlling your news feeds
-Using privacy settings
-Adjusting Facebook features that you hate so you can enjoy using Facebook
-Getting rid of too many friends
-Fixing how many emails you receive
Check out the article for information on all of these issues and suggestions on how to fix them.
