Have you looked at the help in Facebook?  It tells you how to do that.

The help in facebook is massive and rarely my keyword search reveals useful results
I searched both google and facebook extensively before posting here

To stop all that, just stop posting and liking on facebook, take away the cause and your worries will go away too.

The sole purpose of facebook is letting others (your connections/friends) know what you write and read/like, so there is only one real solution: don't do that.

I couldn't help but think of the old joke "Doctor, it hurts when I move my arm like this."  Doctor's reply:  "Don't move your arm like that.  That will be $50."  :)

You can tell it's a really old joke because the doctor only charges $50. :P

I guess my point is that Facebook tells you how to do it.  I don't use facebook that much, but I did it long ago.  The instructions were pretty easy, and under privacy.  So you have to decide to take the easy way of just not doing it, or the marginally harder way of finding out how to turn it off by reading the help on facebook.

It has to be old because I can only afford jokes in the public domain.  ;)
