How to Edit Favorites on Facebook

When you join a group or add an application to your Facebook account, Facebook automatically creates a shortcut on your News Feed page. The left column of your News Feed page contains several links, including your messages, events, friends, groups and applications. Although you cannot edit the primary links on your News Feed page, you can edit your favorite applications list. To edit the list and remove applications from your Facebook account, you must edit the application permissions.
