How to Unblock Facebook From Sending Messages

Facebook notifications, or updates, keep you apprised of certain actions related to your account. The social networking site will send you a message when another user initiations a communication or action with you, such as commenting on one of your posts or asks to list you as a family member. If the notifications become a nuisance, blocking them takes just a few seconds. Likewise, unblocking messages is easily accomplished with just a few clicks of the mouse.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Click on the "Account" link in the top right corner of your Facebook. Choose "Account Settings" from the menu.

  2. 2

    Click the "Notifications" tab.

  3. 3

    Enable e-mail notifications for a particular Facebook action by clicking the box next to it in the "Email" column. Some actions, including "Posts on your wall" and "Tags you in a photo," also have an SMS column. Check the box in that column to receive text message updates for those actions.

  4. 4

    Scroll down to the bottom of the page, and click "Save Changes."
