Filed in Facebook by on September 27, 2010 1 Comment

Facebook alerts can quickly become overwhelming, especially to a new user. Here’s how to cut down on the amount of alerts you get from Facebook.

At the top right of the screen click on the account arrow and choose “account settings.”

Then click on the “notifications” tab.

You will see a page that looks like this.

Uncheck boxes to stop receiving notifications.

I would suggest you keep these boxes checked:

  • Sends you a message
  • Adds you as a friend
  • Posts to your wall
  • Tags you in a post
  • Tags you in a photo
  • Tags you in a note
  • Tags you in a video

Congratulations. you’ve just cut down the amount of alerts you will get from Facebook.
