What are Facebook notifications for?

Facebook notifications are used to notify the account owner of what is happening on their profile while they are offline; For example, you will receive a notification if a person sent you a friend request, if someone commented on any of your posts or if they tagged you in a post ..etc. These notifications will not only reach your Facebook account but also the email that you have linked with your Facebook account or via SMS.

Sometimes it is annoying to have your email full of Facebook notifications, but if you do not constantly check your Facebook account it is important that you know what happens in it, be it through SMS, email or in the app, since some people can hack your account to use it for illegal purposes; If you do not receive notifications you will never know what is happening within your account or it will be too late to try to recover the hacked Facebook account.

To avoid saturating the mail with many notifications, you can stop Facebook from sending emails and leave the essential notifications, then you will notice that the number of emails will decrease drastically.
