How To Turn Off Event Notification on Facebook?

How to turn off event notifications on Facebook

Facebook event feature, when introduced, was such a blessing in disguise. It was meant to invite people to an event and get RSVPs for an event.

Now, if you accept an invitation for any event, the enthusiastic promoters will make your life hell with daily updates.

These updates are to create hype about the event, but unfortunately, instead of publicity, these constant notifications only make your blood curdle. You can prevent these event notifications from bothering you, but exactly how?

Quick Answer

You can turn all the notifications off for any event by simply going to the event’s landing page and clicking on the ‘Off’ option in the “Notification Settings.”

Similarly, you can turn the notification off by locating “Notification” in Facebook settings. Now, turn the toggle off next to the “Allow notifications on Facebook” option in the “Events” tab to disallow notifications.

Let’s dive deeper and learn how to turn off event notifications on your mobile device and computers.

The Dilemma of Facebook Event Notifications

I am a little strict, saying notifications are a dilemma, but they are!

Every day these Facebook and Instagram notifications wake us, and when we are buried deep in our work distract us. Social media does not let us live our lives, as it keeps notifying us if we forget.

Facebook never allows us to have a moment of our own. With notifications, social media controls our lives. Let me explain how!

When you get a notification, it urges you to check your mobile phone as it is a human instinct. When you open Facebook for your notification, one thing leads to another, and one hour later, you are still scrolling through the app.

Now, businesses try to leverage that human instinct by constant updates for push notifications, sometimes not so exciting ones.

When you respond positively to any event, you open Pandora’s box of notifications. Over enthusiasts, marketers try to build the hype and create a rave by posting daily updates on the event landing page.

Sometimes, we show interest in an event to show our support to a small brand or a brand belonging to our friends to only regret later.

Now, if you are tired of these tiring events notifications as they keep distracting you, then the good thing is that you can deal with them.

Facebook has given you the problem and also came up with a solution to fix it.

The Perfect Fix

If you do not want to receive any event notification, decline the invitation. When you decline an event, you will never get any related notifications.
