For all the flak RIM gets about its software, they’ve done a very good job with their own suite of apps. This includes Twitter, BlackBerry Travel, and more — you can check out RIM’s entire suite of apps at App World. But one app that stands out is Facebook. With all the hubbub about Android and iPhone doing software better, the BlackBerry Facebook app stacks up well with its peers. It not only has an easy to navigate interface, but it also integrates well with the BlackBerry notification system. Only, the notifications can sometimes be too much. Sometimes we need to scale back. Here’s how to get rid of some of those notifications. As expected, these will be in the Facebook app. Hit the BlackBerry button, and select Options. You’ll have a decent list of options for integrating with messages and contacts. Those are better saved for another day, though. We’re looking for the notifications. You know, the pings and bells that go off every time someone comments on something you commented on, and the Facebook logo that goes into your notifications bar. To find this you’ll scroll down and see a check box for Facebook notifications. Simple enough, eh? Uncheck it, and you’ll no longer see the logo in your notifications bar, nor will you hear the sound for every alert. From here you can also turn off email notifications, something I did years ago. I can’t recommend it highly enough. (Note, this will not remove any existing Facebook notifications in your notifications bar.) If you want to continue receiving notifications, but don’t want to hear the sound any more — it has woken me up a couple of times — you can go into your profiles to change it. On OS 6 and 7, that’s Options, Sounds and Ring Tones, Sounds for Selected Profile, and then Other Applications – Notifiers. You can change your Facebook notification settings there.
