4 Facebook timeline settings to revisit

By , CIO |  Networking, Facebook, Facebook timeline

The first section will show you your interests. To add or remove some, click the "Edit" button at the top. The section below that will show you the pages you liked by year, and your friends who also like that page. To remove any of these, click on the page's name, then select "Unlike."

3. Check Your Notification Settings

Facebook sends you notifications to the email address you provided whenever certain actions are taken on the social network that involve you. To prevent a barrage of email--or to increase your visibility into what you miss when you're not logged on--visit your Notifications Settings page.

To find this page, click the drop-down menu in the top right of your Facebook page and click Account Settings. From the left-side navigation, choose the Notifications tab.

On this page you can elect to receive a summary email detailing all important updates, or you can choose to be emailed only when select actions occur. For the former, check the box on the top under Email Frequency.

Your Notifications page is broken into two sections: recent notifications and all notifications. Recent notifications will show you the latest actions that involve you, such as who has liked a photo of you, who has commented on a post and who has written on your timeline. You'll also notice an envelope next to each action: If the envelope is greyed out, you don't receive an email notification for this action. If the envelope is blue, you do.

The "all notifications" section is where you can edit the notifications you receive. Click on the options to display a drop-down menu, then add or change actions you want Facebook to notify you of via email. These include when someone sends you a message, writes on your wall, pokes you, tags you and more.

4. Delete Apps You Don't Use

Soon after Facebook unveiled Timeline, it also introduced a bevy of new apps and games just for Timeline users. You've likely seen activity from these new apps broadcast in your news feed and ticker when people read a story on Yahoo or The Washington Post's social reader, for example.

If you aren't sure whether you've subscribed to any of these apps--or whether your activity is being broadcast to your Facebook friends--take some time to review your settings, which you can find on your Privacy Settings page.
