Facebook, in their infinite wisdom, thinks I care when people post a new picture of their baby or dinner or whatever. They are mistaken.
Luckily, unlike some things, you actually have control over this. Notifications you get for new photo uploads and “so-and-so updated their status” can be disabled by following these steps:
- Click “Close Friends” on the left hand menu (probably toward the bottom, under “FRIENDS”)
- Click “Notifications” up in the top right and switch ’em off.
