I have a Facebook account, but I don't really want to use Facebook. I only use Facebook for one group that only sends notifications through Facebook.

How would one get email notifications only from that one Facebook group? I also don't want to deal with people who send me friend requests (I deny them all).

In Facebook, click the gear icon in the upper right to get to the settings menu, then choose "Privacy settings".

On the Privacy Settings and Tools page, click the link for "Notifications" in the left side menu.

You can now turn off all the notifications you want and leave just the one group.

Note that no matter what you do, there may be some notifications that you can't turn off.
