The only way to prevent that visual notification is to remove the app entirely.
There isn't an option in the app which controls that behavior.

What happens if you log out of FB and then hide the icon? I know the carriers push the service book, but if you're logged out you shouldn't get notifications, no?

If you log out the app shouldnt be able to intercept the emails you get to notify you, so that should work.
