It’s Facebook Friday — each week we’ll offer one tip for leveraging Facebook to increase customer awareness of and engagement with your brand or business. This week we’ll show you how to receive (or stop receiving) email notifications when fans post on your Facebook Page’s wall.

It’s not hard at all; in fact, the notifications are on by default. But sometimes you might not want the email address associated with the Facebook Page to receive so many notifications, especially if the Facebook Page is extremely active.

To disable it, just log in as your Facebook Page (if you’re logged in with your personal profile, click the arrow in the top-right corner of Facebook and then click  your Page under “Use Facebook as.” Once you’ve done that, just visit your Page and look for the “Edit Page” button on the right, as pictured below.

You’ll be taken to a page with a number of options in the left panel such as “Your Settings” and “Manage Permissions.” Usually “Manage Permissions” is the default choice, so click “Your Settings” above that. This will change the page to display two options: “Posting Preferences” and “Email Notifications.”

Just uncheck the box by “Email Notifications” to disable those excessive emails. If you want to enable them, check it again. It’s as easy as that! Keep in mind, though, that without the email notifications you’ll have to be diligent in checking Facebook for new comments to respond to. It’s important to respond to your customers’ questions.
