On Tuesday, May 15, 2012, to respond to online privacy issues that the Socialcam App Auto Shared Clips on their Facebook Wall, Socialcam revised their program so that it no longer resumes or turned sharing back on.  Socialcam users should check their Auto Sharing Settings in the Socialcam Profile.

Step-by-Step Instructions – Remove Facebook Trending Videos

In May 2012, Facebook launched a new Trending Videos widget that is automatically posted to your Facebook News Feed. What is intrusive about this feed is that the top videos are from Socialcam or Viddy, and to watch these trending videos you once again must install these Social Media Apps. In addition, the Facebook Privacy settings do not provide a privacy setting to enable or disable Facebook Trending Videos. Here are recommended steps to block Socialcam and Viddy from posting on your Wall.

If you haven’t noticed these videos on your Facebook News Feed, here is an example:

1. From your Facebook Timeline, select Privacy Settings

2. Under Blocked People and Apps, select Manage BlockingFacebook Block Socialcam, Block Viddy

3. Under Block apps, enter Socialcam

Block Viddy

Remove viddy

After blocking these Apps, you should not see Socialcam or Viddy videos on your Facebook News Feed. There may be other videos on the Trending Video Widget, if those videos require you to install an App to view them, you can also block those Apps. It would be nice to see Facebook add a privacy setting to block Video Apps that require App installation.
