I don’t believe the op was asking about the facebook app; in any case, this is a JAWS list and I think posts about the app are probably considered too off-topic. I myself don’t use the app; it seems bloated and I don’t really want that stuff on my phone.


As to sending out e-mail notifications, your friends are in control of that, not you. Basically they can set whether they want to receive notifications by e-mail or not. Not much you can do on your end, and that’s probably as it should be, or else everybody would be getting loads of crap in their inboxes that they don’t really want.

Using the FB app..go to settings, type notifications, you will be presented with several ways one can receive notifications. Tap on each notification preference to change your current settings.

Hello all: I frequently get email messages with Facebook as the sender and a subject like: “[friend so-and-so] shared a link” or a photo, or updated his/her status. So how is that kind of message created—that is, what procedure will trigger that message to be sent as emails to your Facebook friends? There are times when I’d like to do that. I know you can post something by finding “What’s on your mind, [name]?” Then, find “Share” and make sure it’s the “share” button, not just the text somewhere. That, however, doesn’t seem to generate any message via email to your Facebook friends. They will see what you posted only if they decide to go to Facebook and cruise around. I’m not even sure how they find your post.


Yes, even if there isn’t a course on Facebook, it would be great to have some pointers on how to know how your stuff is treated if you place some thing on Facebook. I can use Facebook on my iPhone or my PC, but the conundrum is present whichever method I use.


All best,
