Asked and Answered is a new regular feature where I answer your questions! Got a question? Ask in the comments! This week, we cover Facebook notifications and what appears in your news feed.
Q. Help! I commented on a Facebook post, and now I get a notification EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. someone else adds a comment. It’s making me nuts! How can I fix it?
A. To stop getting notifications on a post you’ve commented on, click on the upper right of the original post, and select “Stop Notifications.” Ahhh…blessed silence.
Q. Why are my group posts not showing up in the news feed?
A. There are a couple of things you can try: make sure you’re regularly liking & commenting on group posts, or Facebook will assume you’re not interested in seeing them. Even if you just pop into the group and randomly like a bunch of posts right now, it should result in more posts from that group in your news feed within hours.
You can also set notifications for them: either all posts, friends’ posts, or no posts.
Q. I’m getting too many Facebook notifications. How do I adjust what I get notifications about?
