The Facebook app brings a lot of notifications on our smartphone throughout the day. The purpose of Facebook is to keep us updated about our friends and close, although at times we get upset due to these notifications. This is the reason why the veteran social media platform Facebook has introduced a new feature Shortcut Bar Settings. According to a report by Tech-linked website TechCrunch, this setting has been seen in the navigation bar of the Facebook app.
On Facebook, the website was told, “We are rolling out the navigation bar controls, so that people can easily connect to the Facebook app on the things they like and they can control the notifications.” If we checked, the new feature has started appearing on iOS, though we will have to wait on Android device.
Through this feature, users will be able to remove tabs like Watch Groups, Marketplace, Profile, Events, News, Friend Requests, Today In, Gaming and Dating or mute their notifications. This will give a lot of relief to users who are troubled by the notifications of Facebook.
If you want to remove any tab from the shortcut bar of Facebook app, then you have to press and hold its icon. After which two options Remove from shortcut bar and turn off notification dots will appear. For example, we tried to remove the Marketplace tab. You can see the screenshot.
Apart from this, you can also use this feature in settings. For this, you have to go to the Facebook app Settings & Privacy> then to Settings> then to the Shortcuts bar.
The company has made some changes to give a new experience to the social media platform Facebook users.
