In order to start receiving these SMS notifications pertaining updates from your Facebook, you definitely need to link your account with your phone number. All you need to do is to go to the Account Settings page and tap on “Mobile” > then select Add a Phone > after that, text ‘F’ to ‘32665’ > you’ll receive a confirmation code on your phone > then enter the confirmation code on your phone. Having done that, your Facebook account will, therefore, be linked with your phone number and you’ll start receiving SMS notifications.

Surely you need to set your Facebook notifications so that you’ll not be bugged with unnecessary notifications. All you need to do is to go to the Mobile Settings of your Facebook account > then click “Edit” > you’ll then have to choose the kinds of notifications to be receiving > after that, click on “Save Changes” and it will then reflect.
What if you decide to stop the notifications entirely? Maybe you’ve grown tired of the notifications and want to put a stop to it, you can actually do this with just some simple taps.

Generating lots of unwanted messages and notifications on your account and even as an SMS and you’re really tired of it? Though deleting your account is the last option but if you’ve made up your mind to take that action and create a new Facebook account, then we’ll show you the steps you need to take in order to do so.
I want to Create a New Account
- If you want to create a new account, you need to download the Facebook app and launch it or click on www.facebook.com.
- Once the site opens, you need to click on “Create New Account.”
- After that, click on “Get Started.”
- The next screen that opens is where you’ll have to fill out your Full Name, Date of Birth, and Gender.
- Then enter your mobile phone number, or click on “Use your email address.” The reason for this is during your recovery process. In case your account is been hacked, to recover it will need your mobile number verification or email verification, depending on the one you chose during sign up.
- The next thing is for you to create your password and then confirm the password. Now when it comes to this aspect, you need to make sure to use a strong password with a combination of alphabets/numbers/sign.

- After that, click on “Sign up.”
- Finally, you’ll need to confirm your phone number or email address depending on the one you’re using.
Now that you’ve successfully created your account, you can search for friends on Facebook.

All you need is view their respective profile pictures to know the right person you’re looking for.
