How To Stop Facebook Notifications

[ad]Dear Computer Lady,

How can I stop FACEBOOK from sending me an e-mail whenever my friends post something on FACEBOOK?


Dear Joyce,

You can easily control when Facebook sends you an email alert and when it doesn’t. Let’s take a look:

First, log into Facebook, and click on the page of a friend you want to change settings for.

At the top of the page, to the right of your friend’s name, is a small box that says, “Friends” with a check mark in front of it, and a triangle after. Click on that triangle to access a drop-down list.

The first item on the drop-down list is, “Get Notifications” You should have a check mark in front of it if you are getting emails every time they post. Just click on that check mark to turn it off, and you will no longer get notifications every time they post.



It’s Your Turn: What do you think?
