If you have had your iPhone for more than a few days, then you have probably installed some apps by now. Most of the apps that you install can send notifications, which alert you to things that the app thinks you will want to know. Some apps send more notifications than others, however, and you may decide that enough is enough.
Luckily installed apps have individual notification settings, which means that you can selectively turn off notifications for some apps without affecting others. So if you have decided that you no longer need or want to see notifications from the Facebook app on your iPhone, then you can follow our guide below to turn them off.
