Facebook is enhancing the notifications tab in its app for mobile devices so that users can get more information in one place about the people, places and events they want to keep track of daily. The expanded notifications tab will now feature personalized updates about a wide range of events, including friends' birthdays and life events, sports scores, television show reminders and upcoming events that users have joined. Users will also be able to add other customized information to their notifications tab if they have enabled Location History in the Facebook app, such as local activities happening in their communities, local news updates, weather reports, local movie times and lists of places to eat. The expanded personalized notifications tab in the Facebook Android and iOS apps is gradually being rolled out across the United States, according to the company. Users will be able to customize the settings so they can get the notifications that they want to receive on their devices.
