Since past 3-4 weeks or so Facebook started adding notifications related to my friends activity to my notification area. Where previously I was notified only about activity around my posts, I can now see:
X added a new photo. Y commented on... Z posted a video and A wrote for the first time in a while.
I'm terrified with this new feature. I have quite a lot friends, but I'm visiting Facebook once per 2-3 weeks and post once per 1-2 month. Thus, before introduction of this feature, with every visit I could find around 3-5 notifications about my own posts, activity or responses.
Now, with each visit I can se around 30-60 notifications about added photos, comments etc.
It seems that I have turned off everything that I could turn off:
and I'm still bloated with these notifications. How can I turn them off?
This answer brought no help to me. It deals with change in Facebook that took place four years ago, while I'm talking about really recent change.
