Wash those Zombies right off your Facebook profile!

It might still be January, but Facebook has decided to introduce a sort of virtual spring cleaning.

The social-networking site, which famously opened its gates to developer applications last May, announced late on Thursday that it will soon be instituting a way for app-happy Facebookers to keep up appearances by relegating many of their widgets to an “extended profile.” By clicking the button, you will be able to hide everything except Facebook’s own applications and a number of others, and a “Show Extended Profile” button will reveal the entire thing to you or your friends.

AllFacebook noted that this may mean bad news for developers who’ve created little-known Facebook applications and are counting on viral buzz to grow their products. If those applications are rendered invisible by “extended profile” controls, that viral expansion could be stalled.
