Facebook notification email settings can be customized

Facebook notification emails are received for most of the follow up events like comments on photos, tags in photos, wall comments and many more. For a regular Facebook user, it might be difficult to manage the amount of emails received; even some are a bit of less useful. Have you already started to hate these notifications? One such annoying instance is receiving notifications like "Xman commented on your friend Y-friend's image, video or status". This is useless (at least for us) if Xman is not a known person.

By identifying this fact Facebook has come up with a new feature to manage the notifications. According to Facebook team
"We're trying out a new feature to reduce the amount of email you receive from Facebook. Starting today, we are turning off most individual email notifications and instead, we'll send you a summary only if there are popular stories you may have missed."

All notification events including Photos, Videos, Links even Wall comments can be customized individually. This is not going to be too handy initially, but will be really useful later when this feature is familiar to users. To start with, there is a default-notification-list that Facebook team has created for us. This can be enabled with a check box selection at the top of notifications page.

With this Facebook users can enable/disable notifications according to individual interests while making sure the inbox contains only the important emails.
