Sisyphus would be proud
Despite the housecleaning tips, the interesting thing is, no matter how much you clean up now,  it is tantamount to pushing a boulder uphill only to have it roll back down (just like Sisyphus).  Facebook has an established fact pattern of resetting user prefs with each update to share info/include items that the user has previously opted out of/disabled sharing of.  Nature of the beast, I suppose.
