If you are like me, you get more than enough emails every day. If you subscribe to any of the social networking sites, I am sure you have learned that social-networks can be an additional source of unwanted emails. Depending on your settings, you may get an email every time someone mentions you or shares a photo of you.

Facebook has settings that let you control the number and type of notifications you get. I know what you are going to say.

“Wonderful, but who has all day to try and find the right settings?”

I agree, especially if you use multiple sites. Many social networks seemingly on purpose make it difficult to find and understand their privacy settings, but there is hope.

Notification Control is a FREE service that sends you directly to the notification settings for many popular social networks.

Among them: Facebook, Foursquare, Google+, LinkedIn, Meetup, Pinterest, and Twitter.

Go to, click the service whose settings you want to change and automatically you will be taken to the notification-settings page for that service.

Here’s to less unwanted emails,
