Annoyed by Facebook group, app, Live Video notifications? Here is a solution

Facebook Notifications

Facebook emerged as one of the most popular social media websites. And we love it; there is no qualm in accepting it, right? Well, as much as we love to connect, there is always a section of stuff that we don’t like to appear on our timeline or news feed. However, Facebook does no discrimination in showing us notifications about everything. The ‘Live video’ feature has also become a regular item in the notification menu. We get a notification every time a friend, page, or group goes live. Most of us do not like it (every. damn. time). Sigh. You don’t need to worry now, as we are here to help you in combating this issue along with a bunch of others.

Here is the link that will take you directly to the settings menu.

Go to a friend’s profile and click on the “Friends” option next to the profile name. You will now see a drop down list with “Get Notifications” option on the top. You can select that option to receive notifications from that friend; a tick mark will appear as soon as you select it. Now, to stop getting notifications, check your buddy’s profile and if the option has a tick mark sign, then unselect it by clicking on it again.
