How do I adjust my mobile push notifications from Facebook?

When you've downloaded the Facebook app, we may send you two types of mobile notifications:
  • Push notifications: sent when you're not actively using Facebook (example: on your device's lockscreen).
  • In-app notifications: sent when you're using Facebook. These show up as numbers over the Notifications in Facebook's navigation, or over the Facebook app on your phone. You can't turn in-app notifications off completely, but you can choose what you get notified about.
