Update: As of August 2013, Scribd is no longer participating in the Instant Personalization program. As always, visitors may explicitly log into Scribd using the "Login with Facebook" button or (for accounts not linked to Facebook) the "Sign Up" and "Login" links.
If you visited Scribd prior to August 2013 while logged into Facebook, we may have used your public information from Facebook to create a personalized reading experience for you. This is called Facebook Instant Personalization. From Facebook's website:
"Just as your News Feed on Facebook is built uniquely for you, instant personalization sites let you easily bring your friends and interests with you. Partners adhere to Facebook's guidelines and may only use your public information to serve you a personalized experience. Public information includes your name, profile picture, gender, networks, and other information you've made public."
You control whether Scribd and other companies can access your information. From your Facebook privacy settings you can remove Scribd from the list of allowed apps, and we will remove your personalized profile from Scribd. You can also turn off instant personalization entirely, and your information will no longer be instantly available to any sites.
Be careful though! If you've purchased a subscription or any documents from our Scribd Store, you might lose access to them. If you'd rather remove your Facebook account from Scribd and keep your Scribd account separately, see our guide to unlinking your Facebook account.
