So you’re getting notifications on your phone and the facebook app that say “@everyone”. This can be annoying and confusing, so in this article we’ll explain how to turn off those notifications.
What is the @everyone on Facebook?
The @everyone tag is a new notification that Facebook added to their app. It appears when someone wants to share a post with all of their followers, but they don’t have access to the function within the app itself. They can only get this tag by using a computer, and then uploading the post to Facebook. If someone posts something publicly on your timeline or in a group you’re part of, it will automatically have the @everyone tag applied to it.
How to get rid of @everyone on facebook?
You can get rid of the @everyone notification on Facebook in a few minutes. All you need to do is log into your account, go to the “Notifications” section of your settings, and click on “How You Get Notifications.” After you’re there, simply uncheck “Get notifications when someone posts something on my timeline or in a group I am member of.” This will stop you from getting any updates about content that’s been posted by friends or groups.
1. Login to facebook
To do this, open your browser and go to www.facebook.com. On the top right corner, look for a blue sign-in button that says “log in”. Click on it and enter your username and password in the fields provided on the login page. Once you have successfully logged in, you will see all of your account’s latest updates as well as a list of all friends’ birthdays coming up in the next month or so (if any).
2. Go to the top right and find your settings -> then click on notifications
Once you’re in your settings and have clicked on notifications, click to go to email. If you’re not already there, scroll down until you see @everyone and the little toggle button next to it. Click that toggle button so that it turns off (in other words, so that ‘On’ is no longer displayed).
3. Under notifications click on email
In the left hand menu scroll down to Groups and turn off @everyone for all groups (or individual groups) that you want to disable it for
4. Under Groups turn @everyone off
Click on your name in the top right corner of Facebook and then click Settings.
Scroll down to Groups and select it.
Next, click on “Turn @everyone off” in the left-hand column under Other settings.
Uncheck the box next to @everyone and click Save changes at the bottom of your screen.
Getting rid of the annoying @everyone notifications is easy and quick. If you follow these steps you will never have to see them again!
