To simplify my life, I looked at removing social media email notifications from my email inbox. When I signed up for social media accounts years ago, email notification is set to yes by default. Over the years, I received more and more of these notification email that cluttered my inbox. You see, I use my inbox for important / action to do items only. Since I do research for clients and am on social media a few times a day, so I see these notifications repeatedly. And, if I miss a notification, the apps on my phone will let me know if there are any notifications. So, to remove these duplicate notification messages was a no-brainer decision. There was just one problem: I needed to figure out how to do this for all my social media accounts. So I went on the hunt.
Here are the main social media links I found that gave me instructions on how to change email notifications preferences. Feel free to click and change your email notifications.
- If you want to do this, first determine if you have another way to receive these notifications.
- Log in using your computer to get these settings. The apps usually don't have an option to do this.
- Have your password handy, you may need to reenter when logging in to this social media site's page.
Making these changes have reduced my emails and I am able to only keep in my inbox what I actually need to take action on. Clearing out the clutter has helped me control my stress when I open up my business' emails on Monday morning. It has helped immensely. Try it and see.
