Blackberry Facebook App

Hi guys,


Please help me with getting rid of the vibration and flashy noise and little star next to the FB icon whenever someone does something on my FB. 


I have turned off my notifications at least 20 times and I still get them. I have no idea how to get them to stop. If anyone knows how I would appreciate it. What I'm talking about is I don't get them in text messages or email, but the actual fb icon gets a little symbol on it and makes a sound and red light blinks. Maybe there's no way to stop it? I only have the app so that I can easily send photos. Otherwise I use the mobile site. Is there any way to not be notified at all? I just want to see the notification when I go to the site. Thanks.

Re: Blackberry Facebook App

Hi gutsy and welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums!


What version of Facebook® for BlackBerry® are you currently using? Did you disable the notifications from the application itself or from the Sounds and Alerts Profiles app on the BlackBerry® smartphone?
