    basically i have an android phone and i keep on seeing facebook notifications right next to my app icon with the little '1' or '2' or however many notifications i have THAT I DO NOT WANT. i have removed notifications from my android settings altogether as well as facebook and i keep receiving them.it worked fine a few weeks ago, but ever since your last patch, i am seeing the new notifications.

    i am also getting push notifications for people liking my page in addition to the notifications next to my app icon. I SPECIFICALLY SAID i dont want notifications and the other posts regarding this dont help me solve my issue.

    do you have any suggestions for how to turn it off?

    Welcome to iMore! We are an Apple-centric forum but I’m sure someone will come by that might know how to resolve your issue. I might also recommend visiting our Android sibling site, www.androidcentral.com, and asking your question there. You might get a better response.

    On my Android I use an app called Simple to access Facebook. You don’t even need to install messenger with this app. The official FB app consumes a lot of battery and resources. You can save up to 20% battery by removing the official app and using an app like Simple. I paid for pro to remove ads. Then you can configure notifications to your liking and it should work as you want it.

    That is my 2 cents worth. Hope it helps.

    P.s. I also have an iPhone.
