I’m on quite a few Facebook message boards and I noticed a popular thing for people to do is comment that they are “following”. The purpose of this is so they will receive notifications when any other comments come in. I thought I would just give a little tip that there is a better way to do this so it doesn’t congest the comments on the post. If you hover over the original message, you will see an upside down triangle appear on the right side. Click on that triangle and then click “Get Notifications”.
On the flip side, sometimes we make a comment but we don’t want to get bombarded with notifications every time someone makes a comment, especially if it’s a popular thread. So to stop the notifications, simply click on the same upside-down triangle and click “Stop Notifications.”
UPDATE! (Thanks Leia S.!) If you are on your iPhone, you will need to click on the specific post that you want to get notifications on, then click the triangle, and then your option. Now I’m not 100% sure if this will mean you will get notifications every time that person posts anything or if it is just notifications for that post (hopefully the latter). Worth trying!
I hope that little tip helps some of you today! 🙂 See you on Facebook!
