A More Useful Notifications Tab on Mobile

By Keith Peiris, Product Manager

Today, we’re starting to roll out an expanded, personalized notifications tab in the Facebook app. 

Every day, people use their notifications to keep up-to-date with their friends and family. We’ve heard feedback that people wanted to add important information that they can easily see, all in one place. Along with your notifications, you can see and customize timely info including:

You can also add additional, optional information that is tailored for you based on where you are if you enable Location History in the Facebook app, including:

With this update, your current notification settings will not change, and you can adjust those any time in your Settings. You can also customize the info you see by tapping the arrow to the right of each card, or Add More Cards at the bottom of the tab.

We’ll continue to listen to feedback about the information people find most useful and may periodically add more cards to choose from.

These new personalized options will gradually roll out to Facebook for Android and iPhone in the US.
