How to turn off Facebook instant personalisation

As you may have heard, Bing and Facebook are friends now. If you don’t like the fact that Facebook is selling your data to Bing, you can turn it off. Here’s how.

Go to the Privacy section in Settings. In the bottom left corner, click to edit the Application and websites settings. On the next page, you’ll see Instant personalisation section, click the big fat “Edit settings” button. Next, uncheck the “Enable instant personalisation on partner websites”. The checkbox may be inactive for now; that’s a sign instant personalisation has not yet been enabled for your account (as is my case). However note, that it is on by default, so when the feature will be available to you, all partner sites will have access to your data. I don’t like that, Facebook.
