Default facebook and text and email question

Please Login to Remove!

this drives me crazy and i hope someone can tell me how to fix it. when i get a message on facebook it sends me a text then 20secs later i get a facebook notification. when i get a email it also shows up in my text folder. can i change this so text messages stay in the text folder and emails stay in the email folders and facebook stays in the facebook folder?

go into your messages folder > OPTIONS > GENERAL OPTIONS and where it says SMS and Email Inboxes - select SEPARATE.

As for your Facebook notifications - you have to logon to your Facebook account from your PC and change the notifications settings there to NOT send you emails. You can actually be very specific about which kinds of notifications you DO or DONT want sent to your email account.
