Sometimes getting too many notifications from Facebook in your email inbox can be annoying and frustrating, imagine getting 50 email notifications about people who liked your post in a day.

Facebook sends notifications of activities on your account through 3 methods based on your preference (Email, Push & SMS). Push notifications are notifications that pop up on your PC or phone when you connect to the internet, SMS notifications as at the time of writing is no longer functional in most countries although the option is still available.
