A previous answer stated:
For example, if you untick Life Events, they will never get displayed no matter what frequency you choose.
Wrong. I’ve unticked the Comments and Likes setting for everyone, but I keep getting those updates.
So-and-so "Likes" such-and-such... with an entire history of everyone who ever posted to some Facebook thread three times removed from me. I do not want to see "Likes." Does Facebook not work correctly or am I doing something wrong?
