Quick Tips: Hide embarrassing or private Facebook activity0:54 /
Whether you've been begging for help with Candy Crush Saga or Spotify is betraying your musical tastes, find out how to remove unwanted posts from your timeline.
With so many apps and websites linked with Facebook, it's hard to keep track of what activity you're sharing with who. If you're not careful, Facebook could be exposing things you'd rather keep private. The good news is you can easily remove activities like reading an article, commenting or listening to music. In the Facebook app, head to your profile and swipe left across these boxes until the activity log shows up. Tap that and you'll see every single activity Facebook has followed and documented on your profile. From here, just find the activity you want to remove, tap the arrow and hit delete which will remove the action entirely. Or hide from timeline which will keep that activity as is but it won't show up on your profile. Much better. For CNET.com, I'm Sharon Vaknin.
