Stop Making that Annoying Little Sound, Facebook!

9 Feb

It took me awhile to realize what that tiny ding was every once in awhile. Was it my phone? Did I get an email? No. It was Facebook! The latest upgrade adds a tiny little ping to every new notification, and it’s driving many people nuts. Want to turn it off? No problem! Follow these easy steps.

Turn off Facebook's notification sounds in a few easy steps.

Turn off Facebook’s notification sounds in just a few clicks.

1. Sign into your Facebook account, and click the gear icon at the top right of your browser window, which will reveal a pop-up menu.

2. Click Account Settings in the pop-up menu.

3. Click Notifications in the list of options on the left side of your browser window.

4. Under How You Get Notifications, click view to the far right of On Facebook, then click the checkbox next to Play a sound when each notification is received. That’s it!

Now, when you get a notification, you’ll see a number next to the globe icon but no sound will play.
