Facebook email notifications can be a big pain, so we thought it'd be helpful for you to know how to turn them off.
- Go to your Facebook settings page and click Notifications in the left column.
- Next go to your applications, and you will see an envelope with a number next to them. Click the Edit button associated with them, and you can unclick what you do not want to receive emails for. Make sure to Save Changes at the bottom.
If you have the Email Frequency box checked at the upper right hand corner of the page, you will not be able to edit anything other than the Other Applications emails. Uncheck this if you prefer to manually choose what you receive emails for.
Or here's an easy alternative - enable SaneNews
If you don't want to go through all this trouble, you can leave these settings alone and turn on SaneBox's SaneNews folder. That allows you to get the notifications but instead of staying in your Inbox, your server will move them to your SaneNews folder where they won't interrupt your day and where you can read them at your convenience.
