How to Quickly Adjust Which Facebook Notifications You See


Notifications are one of the worst things about smartphones. It’s one thing to get notifications for things you want, like text messages, but it’s a completely different story if your phone is beeping because someone has invited you to play a game on Facebook.

It’s great then, that on Facebook for iOS and Android, there’s a really quick and handy way to manage notifications you don’t want to see. There’s also a web option, though it isn’t quite as good. Let’s look at both.

On iPhone and Android

Open the Notifications tab in the Facebook mobile app.

On iOS, swipe to the left on a notification. On Android, long press on it. This will bring up the options for the notification.

The “Hide” option merely hides that notification from the list. Some notifications may have more options, though on iOS, you will need to tap the “More” button to see them.
