I have an iPhone 4S. No Facebook push notifications are activated on my phone. Nevertheless, several times a day I receive a push notification that I have been invited to X event or Y person is in my vicinity. I can't seem to figure out why I'm receiving these notifications and I would rather not get them. Any clue what's behind this mystery?
The answer Matthew Frederick gave should do the trick, but if you want to disable them from within the Facebook app itself, the alternative approach is to:
- Open the Facebook app
- Press the
≡button in the upper left and scroll down to
Uncheck any of the four boxes there
- Close Friends List Activity
- Group Posts and Comments
- Tags You in a Post
- Mentions You in a Comment
If you are receiving additional notifications, they may be coming from the Facebook Messenger app which is separate from the main Facebook app and I believe has it's own settings for push notifications relating to private messages.
When you say that none are activated on your phone, do you mean in the Facebook app or in Settings?
To check, go to Settings->Notifications, and then scroll down to the Facebook item and tap it. Make certain that you have both "Notification Center" set to "Off" and have "Alert Style" set to "None".
