Thanks to a good friend yesterday who let me know that they were getting "way too many" notifications of what I was commeting on with Facebook, using my Personal Profile. The types of notifications she has been getting were ones where I have commented on another Page, Liked a Comment, Photo or Post or had interaction with other friends that she is not friends with. I was rather horrified to think that My facebook useage (which I use daily for business) could have been annoying my lovely friends and family... so I went to work to figure out who it could be changed before my friends list decreases dramatically!
After checking all of my notifications and privacy settings I discovered that these notification changes can't be made through my page, but through my friend's pages (they have to make the changes themselves to limit what they see from my facebook interactions). Here is how you do it:
Here is a step-by step guide to limit what you want to see from Friend's Facebook Interaction on their Personal Pages:
1. Go to the friend's Personal Timeline profile, eg mine (see screenshots below)
2. Click on Friends (Located just below the bottom right of the timeline cover image)
3. Go to Settings. (see below)
4. Then to all updates, then unclick all except for status updates etc or whatever your selections may be. I have chosen to select from my friend's lists, Status Updates, Photos and Life Events for the Friends Profiles that I have adjusted so far.
I hope this post can help other Facebook Users having the same problem with too many inapproriate notifications from friends Facebook Usage. I use Facebook a lot for business reasons and am often commenting on pages logged in as myself. I hope this blog post will help my friends to limit the unnecessary posts they see of my day to day workings with Facebook!
