One of the permissions the app usually requests for is the ability 'To post to Facebook as you'. If you allow this then the app can update your Facebook Timeline and News feed with your activity like what music you listened to and what videos you watched. Sometime the info posted by these apps can be potentially embarrassing. So if you have an app that is posting stuff to your Timeline and you would like to stop it, here is how to do it.
