Facebook Letting Users Unsubscribe From Feed Story Notifications

Tired of getting updates every time someone comments on your popular friend’s status update because you were the first to comment? Worry no longer! Facebook has begun testing a feature which lets users opt-out of those notifications. By clicking a simple “Unsubscribe” link (as pictured below), you can turn off notifications from stories that you comment or like. It’s a useful feature that can help you instantly reduce the noise.

It’s an extremely subtle addition, however there are many users who will be grateful for this addition. Commenting on a person’s status update was instantly a way to get tons of notifications and updates in the past, however now you can safely comment without worrying about getting bombarded with noise.

Thanks to Denis Baranov for the tip!
