Turning off notifications
  1. Select  Menu (icon with three lines)
  2. Select Settings and then Notification Settings
  3. Make sure Friend requests and friends activity are grey on both Email and Push notifications pages
  • Doing this will mean that even if you get a friend request, you won't be interrupted with a notification about it
  • You'll still see a red dot beside the friends icon in the top menu when you get a friend request
  • You don't need to respond to repeated requests
Declining friend requests
