So Facebook new Groups came out and I decided to join a group that was very popular (very). Left a comment on a post then left for 15 minutes. Checked my mail and 10 notifications were seen! As I write this there are more notifications coming in !

Please is there a way to stop this ? I went into the Facebook Settings page but no luck there changing the notifications. Based on the popularity of this group, it may explode my mail or Facebook. Any methods/settings (other than leaving the group) I am missing ?

  • Doesn't the "Groups" section of facebook.com/editaccount.php?notifications have the right options? – ChrisF Oct 6 '10 at 22:41
  • @ChrisF I unchecked those Replies to your discussion board post .I found the options will post a write up unless someone else does. – phwd Oct 6 '10 at 23:25

There are some new options.

How do I edit my notifications for my groups?

To change the notification settings for a Group you’re a member of, go to the Group and click the "Edit Notifications" button on the top right corner of the page.

Here is the current setup I have used. alt text

On top of this on each post you make a comment on, you must click Unsubscribe so that you are not notified about it on Facebook every second.

This solved it for me. These are for new groups. I checked one of my old groups and it has not undergone this change. Any other tips feel free to comment.
