Turning off E-mail Notifications for Event Postings in Facebook

Mar 20, 2012   //   by Raylene   //   Blog, Facebook, Screencast  //  Comments Off

Have you ever RSVP’d (Joined) an event in Facebook, and then started getting hundreds of e-mails about the event? The default settings in Facebook include sending an e-mail notification to you every time someone posts to the wall of the event that you’ve joined. So, if someone posts a comment on the Event page saying, “Nope, I can’t come. Thanks for the invite,” you’ll receive an e-mail notification letting you know they posted, even if you don’t know who they are, or that they were invited to the event.

If you’re like most people, you will want to turn OFF all those notifications, especially if you have joined a particularly busy or chatty event. Here’s a quick video explaining how to change the notification settings, specifically in Events, so that you don’t receive e-mails that you don’t want!
