Facebook is undeniably the most popular social media networking site in the world, with a huge user base of over 2.5 billion. The Mark Zuckerberg-led platform helps users share their goods with other people and access content shared by those we choose to follow. Over the years, Facebook has become an essential part of our lives and it provides countless features to make our experience as comfortable as possible. However, Facebook has some features that are not useful for some, if not all. The section ‘People You May Know’ is one such feature of this multinational platform.
For the unaware, People You May Know Service consistently recommends profiles or pages that should be checked out or followed on Facebook based on information provided by a user. This is a great feature that can take you to many profiles that you want to befriend. However, it is anti-voter and many users do not want to come to those regular recommendations. If you are also one of those who do not want this ‘People You May Know’ feature to appear on your feed, here’s how you can turn it off.
To stop this service, follow these easy steps on your Facebook app:
Step 1: Open the app and from the icon at the top right corner of the screen, under the ‘Settings and Privacy’ tab, click Settings.
Step 2: Now scroll to the notification feature and click on the notification settings from the available options.
Step 3: In the notification settings, for those people you know what notifications you receive.
Step 4: After logging in to the people you know, you can disable the recommendations by turning off the Allow Notification on Facebook. You can also choose where you do not want to receive these notifications by push, SMS or email.
Note: – If you are surfing Facebook on a browser or desktop, you can make the same changes by following the steps mentioned above in the Settings tab.
Since its launch in 2004, Facebook has seen many levels of growth and is now also a hub for all businesses as it helps owners find new customers. Almost every top icon of our world is on Facebook which clearly shows its power. Happy Surfing!
