=> The PERMANENT METHOD: If you’re on a PC, goto the dropdown located at the Top right of your facebook timeline, then click on it and scroll down to settings. For mobile facebook users, simply move your cursor down to the BOTTOM and you’ll see the Settings and Privacy link to click on.
Once you’ve done that, scroll to Apps and locate the name of the app that is autoposting. There, you can now delete the app.
