anyone got tips for getting rid of the phantom notifications? my total keeps creeping upwards, now it's at seven, none of which are real.

can you describe these in more detail?

sarahell, Tuesday, 5 November 2019 18:44 (one month ago) link

you know, the little red dot with the number in it. When I'm logged out, it (incorrectly) says seven, when I log in there are zero. Totally nitpicky but it drives me crazy.

do you use fb on both a phone and computer?

sarahell, Tuesday, 5 November 2019 18:54 (one month ago) link

yeah, and I think that's at the root of it. I don't see them on the phone, but I do on the computer.

The Android app is rubbish tbh. Sometimes when these things appear on the Web page there are new likes or comments way down your list from days ago that it wants you to acknowledge. I've had maybe the odd genuinely phantom notification but it lasted for a day or so and I've never had them mount up

i often get notifications based on the last time i used facebook on the particular device. ... esp. message notifications ... as opposed to the last time i used facebook and looked at the notifications

one month passes...

Logged in to FB after months away, immediately regretted it: https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=2164890463806836&id=100008577106113

God, when I see this ol thread, I think how long ago. Then I see it's only 13 years!

Yeah I prob should have posted that to the “why do I hate that...” other FB thread but somehow always remember this one instead.

Roz, Thursday, 5 December 2019 00:45 (four days ago) link

what's the regrettable thing at that link?

not sure if you're asking about the content of the link or what's regrettable about it: it's a shitty conservative meme about "snowflakes".

if it's the latter, the reason i got off FB in the first place was so that I spend less mental space looking at terrible content, like shitty conservative memes about "snowflakes".

Roz, Thursday, 5 December 2019 02:08 (four days ago) link

if that's the one I'm thinking of, yeah it's pretty bad

sleeve, Thursday, 5 December 2019 02:56 (four days ago) link

the former, as a non-facebooker I couldn’t see it

If you click on his profile all his other posts are about Catholicism and bacon. Not sure what I make of that.
