We actually have nothing against Facebook friends who use the social media app’s Live feature. Go on, broadcast whatever you want. There's one thing, however, that annoys us: getting notified whenever someone on our list—even when we’re not tagged—is “going live.” Because, honestly, who wants to watch you rant about your day or your friend’s drunk state? News flash: Probably half of your FB friends don't even care.
We know that you can just ignore the Live notifications, but we're sure you've accidentally clicked on them before, and have ended up being seen as one of the viewers of the video. Awkward.
Now, if you don’t want to get a bunch of irrelevant notifications—and prevent the unintentional viewing of these Facebook Live videos—here’s what you need to do:
1) Go to "Settings" > Click "Notifications"
2) Find “On Facebook” > click the “Edit” link
3) Scroll down until you see the “Live Videos” option > Click the dropdown and select“All Off”
Once you clicked “All Off” you will no longer receive notifications that a live stream has started. Enjoy your more peaceful Facebook app from now on.
