Hey Facebook, Shut Up!
As I was working last night with my ever-present 20 Chrome tabs open, I started hearing an occasional notification sound. It was a weird sound, one I'd never heard before. Of course, the first thing to go through my mind was "Shit, what tab is this coming from?!" but then I took a look at my Facebook tab and realized...every time someone posted in a group or I got another notification, there was a SOUND notification to go with it! Since I'm in a lot of groups that I try to stay up with, that thing was dinging like I'd won at the freaking slot machines. So, I hunted down the setting that would let me turn off the sound notifications that had suddenly been turned on- and it turned out to be a super easy fix. Here are the steps:
1. Go to settings (the gear)
2. Click "Account Settings"
3. Go to "Notifications" (left sidebar)
4. Deselect "Play a sound when each new notification is received" and save!
Hope this was helpful and you can go back to a (slightly less) distracting Facebook after today!
