Facebook has this new feature wherein you get notifications right away from the friends you put into the “Close Friends activity” category. This may be helpful if you actually want to get updates from certain people right away, but sometimes it gets annoying. So if you want to stop this auto notification, do the following:
To stop getting Close Friend Activity’s notifications
- Login. Go to “Settings” (gear icon) located at the top right of your screen and select “Privacy Settings” from the drop down menu.
- Click the notifications link on the left side then click Close Friends activity. Click the drop down menu and turn it to “OFF”.
If you just want to stop getting notifcations from specific people, just remove them from the close friends list, which you can find on your friendlist.
