Okay, back to the business of the day. The steps you can follow to remove or delete Facebook notification is very simple. You can configure Facebook to send you notifications for practically every interaction you have on the platform, but if you have enabled several notifications, you can quickly become inundated with messages from the site.
However, you can manage your Notifications list from your main profile page. To remove a notification from your Notifications list, you must “unfollow” the notification. When you unfollow a particular notification, you no longer receive messages when the notification’s criteria are met. Here are the 3 steps you can follow to get that done. Do ensure tyou follow the steps with keen attention.
1. Log in to your Facebook profile, and then click the globe-shaped icon in the top menu to open the Notifications panel. A list of your currently configured notifications displays; click “See All” to view all notifications.
2. Hover the cursor inside the entry for the notification to delete to display an “X” in the upper right corner, and then click the “X” to see a pop-up dialog box.
3. Click “Unfollow” in the pop-up to remove the notification from your Notifications list.
Please take note of the following;
There is no way to delete notification messages you have already viewed. Facebook saves all of your notification messages, but lists the most recent messages at the top of the list.
Some critical Facebook notifications cannot be removed. If you do not see the “X” when you hover over the Notification entry, the notification cannot be deleted.
