Default Facebook icon

For the first time I've noticed a wee Facebook symbol below my name and others' in the left hand box beside posts. It seems to link directly to our Facebook page. How can I remove it? I have all the Privacy settings clicked on my Facebook page, due to the nature of my work, but am not sure whether these would be bypassed from here or not. I was able to link directly into it, but then it IS my own page so maybe that was why. Can anyone clarify?

It's not. When you registered you type "n/a" into the field and that's what it's trying to link to - it then just errors out and drops you into your own profile, since it's you, and if I click it, I get my profile.

Heatherbelle, the link is to your facebook page no matter where you find it. If you wish to remove it go into your profile and delete the facebook link at the bottom of the profile page. Use the "User CP" link on the left then "edit your details". Clear the facebook link space at the bottom of the page.

What Ken said.

FWIW, when I click on your Facebook icon, Heatherbelle, I am taken to a Facebook login page since I don't use this browser program for Facebook.

And like Callum, if I copy and paste the icon link for your post into a browser I do use with Facebook, I get my own Facebook page.

Ken is correct, just delete the n/a in that field and the icon will disappear.

I've gone ahead and done what Ken explained for you since I was looking at the code anyways and figured... why not!
