HOW TO: Get Rid of Annoying Facebook Notifications

Do you constantly have 99 new notifications, marked with the little red button at the bottom right in your Facebook (Facebook) account? Would you like to only receive important notifications, such as comments from friends, and skip the stuff various applications send you? Read on.

This isn’t a new feature, but I’m always amazed at how many people simply endure thousands of notifications and updates from applications and pages, without ever bothering to simply turn them off. Here are a couple of ways to do it.

Click on the “Notifications” button at the bottom right corner in Facebook. Click on “See All.” On the right, you’ll see a long list of every application that sends you notifications, and you can turn them off by unchecking them. Be careful, Facebook’s own applications which are probably useful to you, such as feed comments, are also on the list, so you’ll probably want to leave them checked.
