How to Change Your Facebook Notification Settings

If you or someone you know needs help managing their Facebook notifications, either because they can't stand getting all the emails or they just want to adjust them a little, here's how it's done.

The video above will walk you through the process, but here are the steps you need to follow to alter your Facebook notifications settings:

  1. Log in to Facebook.
  2. Click the Account menu at the top right of the page and choose Account Settings.
  3. At the bar on the top of the Account Settings page, click Notifications.
  4. You'll now see a large page of notifications with two checkboxes beside them. The checkbox on the left is for email and the checkbox on the right is for text messages. Checking a box means you'll get a notification and unchecking a box means you won't. Simply choose the options you want.
  5. When you're done making your choices, scroll down to the bottom of the page and click the button labeled Save Changes.

That's it. You're all done! As an alternative, if you'd like to receive all your notifications as a daily email digest, read this guide too.
