How to Disable Your Facebook E-mail Notifications

Monday, May 31, 2010
I was surprised to find out that many of my friends did not know how to disable their Facebook e-mail notifications. This inevitably led to their e-mail account being flooded with hundreds and thousands of unwanted mail. And the best part is, few of my friends went through every one of their e-mail and deleted it.

Actually, there is no reason to have your Facebook e-mail notifications activated, but sadly, Facebook auto activates it and puts many people in the dark as to how to disable it. Maybe it’s a marketing ploy, so that you don’t forget about your Facebook account, don’t you think so?

Anyway, here, I would like to help those who have no clue whatsoever as to the possibility of disabling your Facebook e-mail notifications by guiding you through a step-by-step process that I have prepared using screen shots below (refer to the orange-highlighted lines for what you have to do). Hope it helps you.

Step 1

On your Facebook homepage (or any page for that matter), click on the ‘Account’ tab on the top right hand corner beside the ‘Home’ and ‘Profile’ tab.

Step 2

Once you have clicked on the ‘Account’ tab, a scroll-down menu will appear. There, click on the ‘Account Settings’ tab which is the third tab from the top.

Step 3

This will take you to a new page. Here, click on the ‘Notifications’ tab which is located third from left.

Step 4

Now, you will see a long list of details, all or most of which have the boxes beside them checked. To disable your e-mail notifications fully, uncheck all the boxes. If you want to disable it partially, uncheck those notifications that you want to disable.

Step 5

That’s it! You’re done. Just head over to the bottom of the page and click on ‘Save Changes’. Now you can say good bye to e-mail inboxes laden with unnecessary e-mails from Facebook.

Did that help you? Or do you need more help? Either way, feel free to leave a comment below.
