Enable or Disable Facebook Notifications for the Activity of Friends Near You on HTC One M8
Edited by Thor, Crystal, Eng
Hello and welcome to VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to turn on and off the option to get notifications about close friends activity in Facebook on an HTC One M8.
To begin, turn the phone on by pressing the power button located on top of the phone.
Once the phone has been activated we will see the lock screen.
To unlock the phone, swipe the screen up.
Once the phone has been unlocked we will see the home screen, and at the bottom we will see 5 icons. We now need to open the application folder.
We can do that by tapping the icon in the middle, at the bottom of the screen.
There is a grid of white dots. This is the icon for the applications folder.
Now that the folder has been opened, we need to find and tap the Facebook application.
There is a Facebook icon, which is a blue background with a white "f" inside, and underneath it says the word "Facebook". Your application may be in a different location, so look for the icon in your folder. We now need to find the account settings menu.
To do that, we need to tap the menu icon in the top right-hand corner of the screen.
There are three gray horizontal lines.
Scroll up or down to find "Account Settings", and tap on it.
There will be a gray circle with a white head and shoulders and gear inside. This will open up the account settings menu.
Tap on the "Notifications" option.
We want the option labeled "Close Friends activity".
We will have one option here, "Get notifications". This option is currently activated, indicated by the box with the blue check mark. We will get notifications in Facebook about the activity of our close friends.
If we don't want to receive notifications about our close friends, we can press down on the box until it is empty.
We will return to the "Notifications" page, where we will see "Changes saved." at the top. We can change this option at any time.
There is a slight glitch with this application, especially with this menu.
If we press down on this option again to change it, we will see the option turn blue but not open.
We need to press the back arrow in the bottom left-hand corner of the screen.
We'll see that it's trying to go backward but doesn't leave the menu.
We can now press down on the option again to open it.
We can follow this procedure whenever we encounter that problem.
To change this option again, press down on the empty box to put the check mark in.
It will take us back to the "Notifications" page, where we will have the glitch once again.
Press the back arrow in the bottom left-hand corner of the screen.
Tap on "Close Friends activity" again to enter the option.
This concludes the tutorial on how to turn on and off the option to get notifications about close friends activity in Facebook on an HTC One M8.
