Turn Off Annoying Facebook Live Notifications

Good news, everybody! Facebook has made it less demanding than at any other time to telecast what you’re doing, live. Bad news, everybody! Facebook has made it less demanding than any time in recent memory to telecast what you’re doing, live. Furthermore, the thing about the live video is that it’s pointless if no one’s viewing. So Facebook ensures that you get a notice each damn time one of your companions (or a page that you take after) goes live.

Sometimes, it’s out and out dreadful. Occasions, for example, the Fourth of July here in the U.S. is one of those times. We’ve all seen firecrackers some time recently. Huge numbers of us will be out watching them, live. (Like in-individual.) So the exact opposite thing we need is 200 notices of other individuals’ television their own particular firecrackers encounter over moderately low determination. Here’s how to turn off Facebook Live notifications:

Facebook Live Notifications

  • Go to your Facebook settings. Scroll down to Settings>Notifications>On Facebook.
  • Now choose “Edit.” (Note: This link should take you directly.)
  • Toggle “Live Videos” to OFF.

Note: that this only works from the full Facebook site, not m.facebook.com (which your phone will try to send you to), or from within the Facebook app.

Alternatively, if you just want to kill Facebook Live notifications from a single person or page, you can do so from within the notifications themselves. Just long-press on the person, you want to squelch, and then choose whether to dismiss that single notification, or to turn off all notifications of live videos from that person.
