The majority of applications require you to share your basic Facebook information, such as your name, but they still allow you to control whether it posts to your wall and newsfeed.
Social Networking: On your Facebook newsfeed, scroll to the bottom where you can "Edit Options."
Remove your friend from your newsfeed so that you don't have to see updates and think about this friend.
The latest news stories are conveniently located on the site as a newsfeed.
In the fall of 2006, Facebook added the newsfeed section to the site.
