How To Turn Off Facebook Notifications On Chrome

Google Chrome introduced the API for Push notification support a few years ago and this feature allows Facebook and other websites that are given the permission, to send you notifications and alerts.

By default, Google Chrome browser alerts you whenever a website, an app, or extension wants to send you notifications. So, if unknowingly you’ve clicked ‘OK’ button, you are likely to see push notifications from Facebook page appearing in the corner of the screen, every time. Nevertheless, the user is at the discretion to have it changed at any given time.
