Quick Tip: Turn off those pesky Facebook notifications
So all of a sudden your BlackBerry is being bombarded with Facebook notifications like "so and so has posted a link" or "so and so updated their status". You login and make sure all your notifications are turned off yet they still keep coming! I pulled my 9930 off the charger at 6:30 am and by noon, my battery was down to 32% all in thanks to my Facebook app going off every two or three minutes with these silly notifications. After wracking my brain trying to figure out why I was still receiving them when all the settings were set to off, I do what we all should do when faced with a BlackBerry problem...I logged on to CrackBerry and went straight to the forums. The amount of knowledge all of us can gain from each other is astounding. Within two minutes, I had searched, found my answer & solved the problem all thanks to this forum.
Here's how to solve the issue:
- Login to Facebook (on your pc)
- Find and select your "Close Friends" group on the left hand side
- In the top right hand corner, select notifications, then off or on
Ta-da! Problem solved. Thanks again to all of you in the forum who helped those of us who just couldn't figure it out.
