    So I was looking at turning off some background app data, but does that stop me from getting notifications from Facebook, instgram, snapchat and emails

    ".......some apps run for a short period of time before they're set to a suspended state. Apps that are in a suspended state arent actively in use, open, or taking up system resources. With Background App Refresh, suspended apps can check for updates and new content."

    OK, does that mean if I turn it off I will not receive notifications from that app??

    Why don't you try it, maybe we will learn something. I'm sure all apps act differently.

    I have background app refresh turned completly off for ALL of my apps. I still receive push notifications from facebook, instagram, twitter...etc. Basically , it wont show you the most up to date info when you open the app, you will have to refresh it yourself.

    No because push notifications are different from background refreshing.

    Same here. I turned off background app refresh for lesser data consumption and battery life improvement and i get all the push notifications still

    No. It does not affect apps that are not in a suspended state like apps that inherently check for updates like social media apps, email, iMessages, etc.

    If you don't want notifications then you need to change the notification settings not the background app refresh settings.
