Ever wanted to know if your Facebook friends are up to something? And what’s worse is that they may not include you in their plans. If they’re planning to head into town at night without you, or if you just want to get a heads up on whatever it is they’re posting, then instead of scrolling through endless posts in your news feed to find out, you can just configure your account to get you notified every time your friends post something on the social media portal. Read on to learn how.
Get Notified in Facebook Every Time Your Friends Post Something.
Step 1 – The first thing you can do is to set up custom alerts for your Facebook account. By default, the social media portal will notify you whenever you get mentioned directly. You will also get notified whenever you are tagged in a photo, if you’re mentioned in a reply, or if your friends directly post on your timeline. But if they post anything else that does not involve you in any direct manner, then you won’t get alerted about it’ well, that is if you don’t do anything about it.
What you can do is to choose to tag your chosen friends as your “Close Friends.” Doing so will automatically tell the social media portal that you want to get notified of just about everything that they do on the website. So every time they post about their dog, their kid, or what they’re eating at the moment, you will be one of the first ones to know about it.
Step 2 – But what if you don’t want them to tag your Facebook friends as your “Close Friends?” Well, why would you if you’re not really close in the first place, right? If you want to get notified as to whatever it is your friends are posting about in the social media website, you can just head on to their individual timelines, clicking on the drop down arrow by the Friends button, then choose “Get Notifications.”
By doing these steps on Facebook, you will no longer miss out on anything for every update your friends post about within the social media portal. So whenever they’re planning a summer vacation, you would be one of the first persons to know about it.
