Facebook continues to tinker with how users can control their notifications settings, with the notifications section under account settings now offering a host of options.
Users can dial back the frequency of emails by now checking off a box that reads: “Send me important updates and summary instead of individual notification e-mails.”
Customization is available in the following categories:
- Help center
- Wall comments
- Other updates from Facebook
- Other applications
In addition, clicking the Facebook category at the top of that list brings up the following subcategories:
- Sends you a message
- Adds you as a friend
- Confirms a friend request
- Posts on your wall
- Pokes you
- Has a birthday coming up (weekly message)
- Suggests a friend you might know
- Adds a friend you suggested
- Joins Facebook after your invite
- Tags you on their profile
- Tags you in a post
- Mentions you in a comment
- Comments on a post you were tagged in
- Subscribes to your public updates
- Posts content (close friends list only)
- Says you are with them in a post
- Likes a post you’re tagged in
- Likes your post
- Subscribes to one of your lists
Users will be able to turn all email notifications on and off for each category and subcategory.
Readers: Do you find notifications helpful? If yes, which ones?
