Facebook question
HELLO


Have a FACEBOOK question for all of you who do facebook sweeps

When you check off the following or newsfeed and it has notification there do you check that or not?

If you do do you get a bunch of spam in your inbox:

Please advise I don't know whether to check it or not.

I think I know what you mean.

If you like someone then they come on your feed every time they make a comment.

If you don't want to see their comments what you need to do is hover your cursor over LIKE and a drop down menu will appear. "Show in News Feed" will be bold with a check by it. If you unclick the check you won't see their posts.

Hope this answers your question. I have been on Facebook for a couple of years, but every time I feel like I 'get it' they change something.

Location: in my imagination it is a beautiful place.
after you LIKE a page - go back up to the LIKED and hover over it
a box will open and you can uncheck "show in newsfeed" so you do not see their stuff.

Show in News Feed - Facebook
If you uncheck that option (so you don't see their posts on your facebook page), are you still entered to win?

The "Get Notifications" check is to receive an alert every time they post a new post on their page. You get that little red alert like you get when someone comments on your posts etc. (This is helpful on the pages where they frequently do 24 hour contests and stuff where you'd want to see it right away)

The Show In Newsfeed is what everyone else said. And yes, you are still entered to win if you uncheck these as long as you "Like" the page if that's a requirement.

Spoiler for {option}:
