How do I choose what I get notifications about on Facebook?

You can't turn off notifications entirely, but you can choose what you're notified about and how you're notified.
You can change what you get notified about when you’re on and off Facebook. While push notifications are sent to you when you aren’t using Facebook, in-app notifications appear as notification dots.
Choose what you get notified about
  1. Click in the top right of Facebook.
  2. Select Settings & Privacy, then click Settings.
  3. Click Notifications on the left.
  4. Click to adjust how you get notifications and what you get notified about.
