How can I stop Facebook notifications from popping up?

Facebook notifications are a huge distraction in the workplace. It is not uncommon to see people with their heads down scrolling through updates from their friends or even playing games on the app.
To stop Facebook notifications from popping up, you can turn off notifications in your device settings. This way, your phone won’t constantly buzz with a notification when someone shares a post. If you have an Android phone, this can be achieved in the notification settings in the App Drawer of your phone settings app. For iPhone users, it can be found under Settings > Notifications > Facebook.
You may also want to set Facebook to “quiet” or “off” during work hours so that you don’t see any posts until after work hours when you’re free to do whatever you want on social media sites.

Is there a way to view the notification without interacting with it?

The notification is not something that you can just ignore. You will be notified every time it pops up unless you turn off the notifications for the app altogether.

What are some possible reasons why my Facebook notifications are not going away?

This article is about the various possible reasons that one may have to why their Facebook notifications are not disappearing. The first reason for this is the notifications are turned on.
The second reason for this may be that if one has a lot of different notifications, their notification has been suppressed. It only pops up when the user scrolls down to get to it.
Also, if one has a lot of friends and posts, Facebook will suppress any posts from those pages as well as posts from those friends in order to make it easier for people to scroll through their feed without having too many things popping up at once. The final reason as to why your notifications may not be disappearing is because you have reached your limit on how many you can see per day and they will disappear after 24 hours.
