Those Facebook Notifications

My Facebook friends run the gamut from tech savvy to “Where’s the ‘Any’ key?” Some should probably have their clicking privileges revoked! Another story for another day.

With a gazillion Facebook friends I see every annoyance and problem possible! I see my friends complain about them every day.

Really people??! I do not want any requests for games and all this crap! Please respect my wish and back off! Not intersted!

One of my Facebook friends posted that last night. It sucks, but that’s how Facebook makes a living. There is some good news.

After one spammy message, you can turn it off!

When you get notification move your mouse cursor to the upper right corner of the message. Mysteriously an “X” will appear.

Click it!

You’ll be asked to verify you want to stop this specific app from emailing you. “Yes.” Done!

Each app will require separate permission. There are many similarly named apps. In the beginning you’ll think you’re not making headway. You are.

You’ll never be fully rid of them. The pace can be slowed.

You’re welcome.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you. I’d just spent 20 minutes trying to figure out how to rid myself of a series of Facebook spam messages, to no avail. Then I saw your post and, voila, they’re gone.

    Someday there’ll be a meaningful alternative to Facebook, one that my friends and relatives are willing to use, and on that day I’ll drop Facebook and never look back.
