I actually do this from time to time, so I guess it's good advice to pass on to others: checking each of your social networks to see what websites still have access to your data. It's important (to my mind) not to leave access open to services you aren't actively using, because these services may evolved in unexpected ways. I'm generally pretty careful about who I allow access in the first place (and never give access to Twitter or Facebook just to leave a comment on a site. This article is really useful because it gives you step by step instructions on how to edit OAuth access on a number of popular sites.
