I've started getting notifications, just this week, from some of my friends when they update a status on Facebook. Everywhere I look, people say "these are your close friends, turn off the notifications on that list", but my close friends list is empty.

I turned the notifications off anyway, and it continues to spam me. I have also deselected notifications for all other updates under the notifications options.

It is driving me crazy! How can I get it to stop?

Try adding one friend as a "close friend" and see if everyone else's notifications disappear. – Alex In Paris Jul 9 '12 at 7:08

Try going to the notification tab on top of Facebook page (the World looking one). Put your mouse over the notification spam. Click the x on the top right of that notification. Then click turn off. Hope that helps.
