Is it possible to selectively turn off the notifications I receive from Facebook on Mac OS? In the system settings "Internet Accounts" I can only enable or disable the entire notification function.

Currently I am using an app for Facebook messages and I am receiving double notifications each time a message comes in.

    Welcome to Ask Different! Can you please clarify what you mean by 'selectively turn off the notifications'? What specifically are you looking to turn off?

  • I am receiving various Facebook notifications through the Mac OS notification system from groups, pages I am following, etc. I am also receiving notifications about each new message I receive. I would like to turn off only this "new message" notifications, because I am using another App for Facebook messenges, which also sends its own notification and offers more interaction. Thus, I'm receiving double notifications.
