Facebook

Recently Facebook decided that in addition to visual notifications, it would start making a “beeping sound” when you receive a new notification. This brief tutorial will show you how to disable that annoying beep.

Note: this “feature” hasn’t been rolled out across all of Facebook yet, so your account may not be affected (yet).

  1. Click the ‘Settings’ button in the upper-right corner of your Facebook page and then select Account Settings from the menu.
  2. Select Notifications from the left column.
  3. Click the link titled view from the On Facebook row.
  4. Remove the check-mark from the Play a sound when each new notification is received box and then click the Save Changes button.
  5. That’s it, no more beeping from Facebook!
