About the new Quiet Mode of Facebook
The Quiet Mode acts as a countdown. The users set the period that he desires to enable the feature, and all the notifications are blocked during the period requested. Users can quickly see how much time they still need to wait before the app is ready again to be used when clicking on the app’s interface.
If this sounds like a punishment and at a time you might need to use the Facebook app, you can easily click on the button “Manage Quiet Mode” and disable the feature. However, the users will still need to pass through a series of security questions to regain access to the app.
Additionally, not all the notifications from Facebook are disabled while opting for this feature. It is illegal to stop the spreading of announcements concerning security alerts or privacy issues.
Nonetheless, all the notifications regarding comments, timeline posts, messenger texts, or new posts will not be displayed during the Quiet Mode. The activities are still displayed in the notifications bar. The only difference is that there is no sound presented while the mode is enabled.
The Quiet Mode can be enabled when entering the Hamburger menu tab displayed on the Facebook app. After that, all you have to do is click on “Your Time on Facebook” and select the “Quiet Mode.”
