3 Ways to Get Facebook Notifications without the Facebook App for Android Devices
1. Get Chrome notifications
This is a relatively new addition to the Facebook tips list. As of mid-September, Chrome now allows you to use the web version of Facebook and still get push notifications. This is basically the best thing to ever happen to non-fans of the Facebook app.
2. Use Tinfoil for Facebook
I’ve been a fan of Tinfoil for Facebook for a long time. Tinfoil is basically just a web-view app, meaning it looks like an app but all it really does is launch a web-view version of Facebook when you open it. It doesn’t cache data, sync notifications or consume system resources in the background.
3. Get notifications via email
This is going seriously off-grid. In your notification settings on facebook.com you have access to some seriously old school notification options including email and text message. There’s a bunch of different options for each setting – especially email – so you can curate exactly which messages you want to receive via email.
