Get notifications on any Facebook post without commenting

You’ve probably noticed people on Facebook typing in “following” on a post so they can get notifications and maybe you’ve done it too. But did you know that there’s actually a built-in way to do it without commenting?

Yep! Just go to any post whether it’s in a group, on a page, or in the newsfeed, or wherever, and click the 3 dots (or sometimes a small arrow) in the upper right corner of the post. From that dropdown menu, choose “turn on notifications for this post.”

Click or tap the 3 dots in the upper right corner (on some devices, it’s a down arrow)


From the dropdown menu, choose “turn on (or off) notifications for this post”

Now, anytime someone makes a comment, you’ll get notified.

Likewise, you can do the same thing to stop getting notifications – click the 3 dots/arrow and choose “turn off notifications on this post.”

And that’s it! Easy peasy and available whether your using Facebook on the web, on a mobile device or the Facebook app.
