Are you constantly bombarded by Facebook notifications that don't really need your attention? 

Does the "@everyone" tag in group posts drive you a bit crazy? 

Here's a Cool Tip.  Change your Facebook Settings.

You have the power to customize your Facebook notifications and filter out the noise.

@everyone is a Facebook tag used to notify all members of a group, ensuring everyone receives important messages. 

@friends and @highlights are tags that notify specific subsets of your friends about posts or comments, helping you share content with those who might find it most interesting.

Let's walk through how to turn off those pesky batch notifications in a few easy steps.

Here's how to do it.

On Your Desktop/Laptop
  1. Log in to your Facebook account.
  2. Click the arrow in the top right corner and select "Settings & Privacy" and then navigate to "Settings".
  3. In the left-hand panel, locate and click on "Notifications".
  4. Find the "Tags" section and click on it.
  5. Locate the "Batch mentions" toggle and click to switch it to the "Off" position.

The Advantages of Turning Off Batch Notifications

Making this settings change puts the focus on the notifications that are truly important to you.

Just remember that this only turns off the bulk notifications. 

You'll still see the post where you were tagged, just without a specific notification about it.

The Takeaway

Disabling Facebook's batch notifications is a simple way to gain greater control over your digital experience. 

Important Note: 

Facebook has repeatedly stated that there's no way to see who views your Facebook profile. 

Some online claims suggest typing @highlight in a comment reveals this information, but this is simply a myth.

By following these steps, you can enjoy a less cluttered and more focused Facebook feed.
