Facebook recently updated the website and made a few changes. I’m not sure if it was intentional, but they turned on the notification ‘Bee-Boop’ for everyone. Like a smoke detector with bad batteries in a white trash trailer, some people seem to not even notice it.
For me, that BEE-BOOP was driving me crazy.
It looks like it was bothering my friend Patrick too!
HOW TO TURN OFF FACEBOOK NOTIFICATION SOUNDS
If you want to turn off your NotificationBook it’s really pretty easy. Head over to your Notification Settings Page.
Once there, click on the View button. The next screen has a simple check box to UNCHECK.
And then click the SAVE button of course.
Now you’ll once again be able to meditate peacefully in Facebook Zen Silence
(zazen, shikantaza, or sesshin – it’s up to you).
You are welcome!
By the way, best answer to Patrick’s dilema goes to Jeff Belonger who said,
He's an avid hockey fan, rides a mountain bike, sometimes rides a road bike, has a few motorcycles (he had a really fast one, bought a cool orange one, rode a really slow one, and wants a really small one). If that isn't enough, he makes cheese and sourdough bread, loves strong beer and good red wine, and poorly plays the Mandolin.
