Somehow I'm getting chrome facebook notifications on my phone, even when facebook is not open in a chrome tab.  How does this work and is it likely to use battery?  It's annoying because I also have the facebook app so get duplicate notifications.   How does one turn it off?

Try this....

 

Android

 

 

 

     

  1. On your Android device, open the Chrome app Chrome.
  2. Tap More More and then Settings.
  3. Tap Site Settings and then Notifications.
  4. Use the blue slider at the top of the screen to turn this feature to Ask first or Blocked.

     

    • Ask first: You’ll receive an alert from Chrome whenever a site wants to show you notifications. This is the default setting.
    • Blocked: You won’t see any notifications from websites.

 

Turn off notifications from some sites

 

     

  1. On your Android device, open the Chrome app Chrome.
  2. Go to the website you don’t want to receive notifications from.
  3. To the left of the web address, tap Lock Lock.
  4. Next to "Notifications," tap the Down arrow Down Arrow. Choose Allow or Block.

     

    • If you don’t see the setting here, this website can’t send you notifications.

It works via Google Cloud Messaging, and it uses push notifications, so it uses very little battery. A lot of people (myself included) don't use the Facebook app anymore, because using it via the browser is a lot more battery-friendly, and you still get notifications.
