Name problems

When I go onto TA forums, my Facebook name appears at the top instead of my TA name. I don't want this. How do I stop it? If I log off and sign in again I can do it with my TA name. but, I don't want it to do the Facebook name automatically as it does,

Hi SusieQQ;

Connecting your TA account with your FaceBook account is a result of FB's "Instant Personalization" feature.

Best Regards

Thanks, RescueTeam,

I was able to go into Facebook's Instant Personalization site and found that it was enabled for a number of sites, not just TAs... I turned it off for all of them...I don't like that feature at all.
