    I go on facebook on my phone an laptop, but i have also been on on my mums mac OS X Mountain Lion, and somehow it has signed me into the notifications centre on her computer. this means she can see all my private messages etc. which i do not want.
    I need to know how to logout of facebook in the notifications centre.
    i have cleared cookies and made sure my password was not saved to the computer but it hasn't stopped it.

    thanks for any help

    (NB: she also has a facebook account so if there was a way to put her in instead that would work too)

    i figured it out eventually, but if anyone else wants to know here's the info

    go to System Preferences>Mail, Contacts & Calendars
    on the left you will see a list of email/calendar/etc service providers that send you notifications
    Click on Facebook and then the - sign at the bottom, this deletes that account
    to add a new account click facebook on the right and then the + at the bottom then add your profile information

    good luck

    He's another approach: Enable Guest account on her laptop. Guest account setting/preferences will be forgotten when you log out and that way you aren't looking at her Facebook info also! ;)
