25 FebMake Facebook stop beeping at me

Facebook seems to have recently changed notifications so that if your browser window is not active when you get a notification, it will beep at you. Even for a ‘like’.

I don’t know about you, but I don’t have the time or inclination to click back to Facebook every time someone ‘likes’ something or sends me a Care2 request.

Here’s how to shut off that infernal beeping:

  1. Go to https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=notifications
  2. …under “How You Get Notifications”, uncheck “Play a sound when each new notification is received”
  3. Save and rejoice.
