My girlfriend added Facebook to my Notification Center. I tried to set the alert style to none, and you can see the check mark to show items in Notification Center is deselected.

I want it completely gone but don't know how else to configure things.

Have you tried signing out / deleting Facebook from the Mail, Contacts, Calendars system preference pane? Just select Facebook on the left and press - to delete the feed. After a reboot, you might try adding Facebook again and see if it's not sending notifications, but you might have to choose to remove that account if there is a bug in the controls. You're doing the correct steps in Notification center controls AFAIK. – bmike Mar 2 '13 at 23:12

Open Safari › Preferences › Notifications There you can remove objects permanently.

Go to Mail, Contact & Calendars and click on minus sign (-) after selecting Facebook on the left pane.

Actually I did that before asking the question. Is there anything else I can do? – Marcus McLean Mar 3 '13 at 21:04

I had this problem too. Go to System Preferences > Internet Accounts . You can remove Facebook account from there and then it will no longer appear in the notification center at all

Just drag it down to Not in Notification Center list.

There's an answer found here that worked for me with an app I had uninstalled but was still in the notification center:

We're looking for long answers that provide some explanation and context. Don't just give a one-line answer; explain why your answer is right, ideally with citations. Answers that don't include explanations may be removed.

Just remove it using Safari->Preferences->Notifications->Remove/Remove all
