Limit the Number of Text Messages Facebook Sends You Each Day on HTC One M8
Edited by Thor, Crystal, Eng
Hello and welcome to VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to set a daily limit on the number of text message notifications you receive from 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 tap the menu icon in the top right-hand corner to find the account settings menu. 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 "Text Message".
Tap on "Edit" in the "Daily Text Limit" section. Underneath it says, "Unlimited", in this example. We can set a daily limit on the number of text message notifications we receive from Facebook. If we are receiving too many we may need to limit them.
Tap on the chosen amount of text messages. It ranges from "Unlimited" at the top (which is currently selected, indicated by the blue check mark), to "1", all the way to "100". We're going to choose "50". Now it will say "50" underneath of "Daily Text Limit", indicating that we have successfully changed the option.
There is a slight glitch with this application, especially with this menu. If we press down on "Edit" for 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 "Edit" for the option again to open it. We can follow this procedure whenever we encounter that problem. Now we can tap on a number to select it.
This concludes the tutorial on how to set a daily limit on the number of text message notifications you receive from Facebook on an HTC One M8.
