Receiving unnecessary notifications on Facebook often gets irritating, especially when it’s not related to you. It pisses you off even more when you have to open the application, only to find out it’s somebody’s birthday and the app is reminding you to wish the person you have not spoken to, in years.

When you have a friend list brimming with people you are not in contact with, birthday notifications spamming your notification column become a pet peeve, similar to an alarm, belonging to the person you share your room with; the alarm isn’t meant to wake you up, but surely does disturb you, while the other person sleeps peacefully.

To get rid of the hassle, the process is rather simple and straightforward. Follow these simple steps to turn off the annoying birthday notifications:

  1. Click on the arrow, located on the top right hand side of your Facebook page and access Settings from there.
  2. Tap on Notifications and scroll down to Birthdays.
  3. Simply toggle off the feature, by clicking on Birthdays.

In case you’re afraid that you might miss a close friend’s day, go back to the settings and enable the feature!
