How to Delete Notifications on Facebook


Many individuals use Facebook as a venue to commemorate significant events in their lives. If you’ve recently started a new job, had a kid, or purchased a new home, Facebook is typically the first place you tell your friends and family about it. The unfortunate reality is that folks who remark on your postings are opting themselves into receiving days’ worth of alerts, since everyone you know also comments. It serves mostly as a deterrent to leave a remark rather than a motivator.

However, there are methods to leave a remark without having to deal with the barrage of alerts. In your account’s settings, you may, for example, go to the Notifications page and set up rules that govern when you want to get notifications and when you don’t. Delete specific alerts that you no longer want to see stacked up on your Notifications page, on the other hand, is also an option. Here’s how to do it on your Facebook account, whether you’re using a desktop computer or a mobile phone:
