Friendship suggestions on facebook
After a long time without Facebook social networking siteThe app, it has recently appeared on my Android phone. Basically, the app offers a lot of benefits, such as faster message load times and an overall smoother experience. However, there are also drawbacks, including all the notifications sent from the app. You want to receive notifications from some applications, for example from your email applications and WhatsApp, Telegram or Signal. You might prefer to see notifications from Facebook disappear like snow in the sun.
One of the notifications Facebook sends is about friend suggestions. Once the app has someone to introduce it to you, it sends a notification. Remarkably, it often has to do with people you don’t know, and the question is how Facebook selects people. While Facebook wants to keep sending you notifications, it does offer the option to disable notifications for these friend suggestions. Facebook will continue to make suggestions to you, but it will only do so when you open the app.

Notifications can be disabled via the Facebook app for Android and iOS, as well as via the (mobile) browser on Android, iOS, Windows, Mac OS and other operating systems.
