How to disable Live Video notifications of Facebook

The most popular social networking website Facebook rolled out Live Videos a few months ago. Although initially it was unveiled among few well known Facebook pages, later, they released it for all. Having said that, you must have the official Facebook app on your mobile to be able to experience this feature. You can live stream on Facebook and share whatever is happening around you on Facebook.

Facebook has a pretty good function for users. It notifies users whenever a video on a popular ‘Liked’ page goes live. For example, if, we (TheWindowsClub) stream a video on Facebook, all the people who have liked our page on Facebook, will get the notification that we are ‘Live’ at the moment.

Facebook has included this feature so that users can be a part of live videos and interact with the host one-to-one. For those who often wish to connect with other people, this feature seems very useful. However, if you do not like the Live Videos feature of Facebook, it may be a distraction for you.
