In Facebook whenever you are added to a Group and/or you are promoted as an admin of any Group it becomes your responsibility to take care of it and ensure that no unauthorized or unwanted Facebook IDs can enter into that Group. To make things simpler Facebook provides a feature in which admins of Groups are automatically notified whenever any user requests to join the Group. The notifications are flashed on the Facebook website and simultaneously an e-mail is also sent to the associated e-mail account to inform the admins about the request that is waiting for approval before it can be added to the Group. If the Facebook profile is used for official purposes and Groups are created for business meetings the e-mail notifications are mandatory and should be kept unharmed for official purposes and records however in many cases where the profile is used for domestic and personal uses these e-mail notifications have no value and therefore if as a Facebook user you want to disable this feature of receiving Facebook e-mail notifications you can follow the steps given below:

  1. Logon to your Facebook account.

  2. Click on the triangle available at top right corner of the page.

  3. From the available list click on Account Settings option.

  4. From the opened page in the left pane click on Notifications option.

  5. From the right pane under All Notifications category click on Groups and from the expanded list uncheck the checkbox in front of Asks to join a group you adminoption.
