So… I am aware that the Facebook app reads whats on my phone or in this case the clipboard. I could careless what it reads or has access to. BUT, is there anyway to get rid of this … case in point, I copied a link from the app of a site and sent it to my husband privately. Nothing bad, a meme I thought was funny. Ever since then when I go to the app Facebook, it has the link in my status box asking me if I want to included it in my post…for the last MONTH! If I wanted to included it in my post, I would have done so to begin with. I want the link to go away! I have cleared everything on my clipboard, I have cleared the data and cache on my Facebook app. I am over the link, Facebook, ok?! … any help would be appreciated…
