Facebook has introduced a new feature that can be super helpful for everyone but can be annoying to some, especially those who are experiencing notification anxiety.

Facebook now has an @everyone tag feature that lets group members send a special notification to everyone as if they are tagging them individually. This new feature was introduced in March of 2022.

It’s quite useful if you want to call out every member of a Facebook Group, especially if it’s an important message. This is a big help for group moderators and administrators when making announcements.

However, there are some users who abuse this feature as they would tag everyone even on less-important messages and announcements.

This, in return, can trigger notification anxiety that some users may have. If you’re one of those users, here’s how you can disable the @everyone tag on both Facebook Messenger and Groups.

How to disable @everyone notification on Facebook

Step 1: Open your Facebook account and go to “Menu” or the icon with your profile picture in it.

That’s how you can disable the @everyone notifications on Facebook Groups. If you’re looking to disable a similar feature on on Facebook Messenger, sadly, it’s not available. The best you can do is mute the group chat entirely.
