It first looked cool and useful when it started out but when it got extremely out of hands, I had to do something. When Facebook introduced smart list, they made it very easy to group your friends according to their importance to you. It also makes it easier to keep track of their facebook activities as you get notified when they post an update or upload a new picture. The downside of the smart list is that you get tons of notifications that’s of no use to you. Even without commenting or liking the post, you get notified about it. Sometimes, you have to scroll through all these unwanted notifications just to get stuffs that are important to you and at other times, what you need just get drowned in the pool of these crazy notifications.
Stopping Notifications From Close Friends
-Log in to your facebook account and on the homepage, check the left column
-Scroll down till you see your lists
-Select Close Friends
-On the next page, check the top right corner and click on notifications
