Facebook Stop Notifications

Quick story time: A couple of weeks back I went encamping in the remote wilderness for the weekend. We were well out of my carrier's variety and so I was not able to look at Facebook, Instagram or Twitter for 3 entire days. When I got back into series of a cell tower, my phone blew up with notices as anticipated, Facebook Stop Notifications.

However among the texts and emails, my Facebook and Instagram alerts protruded to me. In my absence, no one had really commented or liked anything on my profile-- but I still received numerous notifications about "so and so posted something for the first time in a while" or "that old friend from high school who you hardly ever talk to added brand-new photos recently".

Social media notifications are expected to be about letting you understand when somebody has talked about or reacted to something you've published, however then there are all these other types of notifications that appear to serve another purpose-- get you taking a look at your phone, opening that timeline, and getting sidetracked in the never-ending stream of material.

The most significant perpetrators seem to be Facebook and Instagram (which Facebook owns). Naturally, I took to Facebook to vent about this concern, then dove into the app settings to see what might be tweaked. If you're getting fed up with these attention-stealing alerts but do not want to go the nuclear path and erase the apps from your phone, here's the best ways to reel in social media notifications on the biggest offenders-- Facebook and Instagram.

The best ways to tweak your Instagram notices

Instagram likewise gives you the option of just permitting push notices from people you follow, which readies if you discover yourself being harassed by spam bots. I'm still discovering that Instagram is keeping back notifying me on some likes for the sole purpose of getting me to look into the app. I'll examine the app and see that 3 friends have liked a picture, then a half hour later I'll get an alert for one of those 3 good friends.
