How to exclude a specific application from ACTION_SEND Intent?

I have used the following codes to exclude facebook app from my app chooser:

List<Intent> targetedShareIntents = new ArrayList<Intent>();
Intent intent = new Intent(android.content.Intent.ACTION_SEND);
intent.setType("image/*");
List<ResolveInfo> resInfo = getActivity().getPackageManager().queryIntentActivities(intent, 0);
if (!resInfo.isEmpty()) {
for (ResolveInfo resolveInfo : resInfo) {
String packageName = resolveInfo.activityInfo.packageName;
Intent targetedShareIntent = new Intent(android.content.Intent.ACTION_SEND);
targetedShareIntent.setType("image/*");
targetedShareIntent.putExtra(android.content.Intent.EXTRA_SUBJECT, "tooter.nl");
if (!TextUtils.equals(packageName, "com.facebook.katana")) {


targetedShareIntent.putExtra(android.content.Intent.EXTRA_TEXT, st);
targetedShareIntent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_STREAM, screenshotUri);
targetedShareIntent.setPackage(packageName);
targetedShareIntents.add(targetedShareIntent);
}

}
Intent chooserIntent = Intent.createChooser(targetedShareIntents.remove(0), "Select app to share");
chooserIntent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_INITIAL_INTENTS, targetedShareIntents.toArray(new Parcelable[targetedShareIntents.size()]));
startActivity(chooserIntent);
}


Facebook app was removed when I used the code. But the sad part was, even Twitter app was also removed from the app chooser and other unnecessary apps like "Android system" was listed on the chooser . What should i do ? Is something missing or wrong with this code ?

Check my answer below. It will exclude only facebook application from sharing.

 void shareOnOtherSocialMedia() {

    List<Intent> shareIntentsLists = new ArrayList<Intent>();
    Intent shareIntent = new Intent();
    shareIntent.setAction(Intent.ACTION_SEND);
    shareIntent.setType("image/*");
    List<ResolveInfo> resInfos = getPackageManager().queryIntentActivities(shareIntent, 0);
    if (!resInfos.isEmpty()) {
      for (ResolveInfo resInfo : resInfos) {
        String packageName = resInfo.activityInfo.packageName;
        if (!packageName.toLowerCase().contains("facebook")) {
          Intent intent = new Intent();
          intent.setComponent(new ComponentName(packageName, resInfo.activityInfo.name));
          intent.setAction(Intent.ACTION_SEND);
          intent.setType("image/*");
          intent.setPackage(packageName);
          shareIntentsLists.add(intent);
        }
      }
      if (!shareIntentsLists.isEmpty()) {
        Intent chooserIntent = Intent.createChooser(shareIntentsLists.remove(0), "Choose app to share");
        chooserIntent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_INITIAL_INTENTS, shareIntentsLists.toArray(new Parcelable[]{}));
        startActivity(chooserIntent);
      } else
        Log.e("Error", "No Apps can perform your task");

    }
  }
}

And call the above function wherever you want. Let me know for queries.
