Quick One! Too Many Notifications?

Every new activity on a Facebook Group has the potential to generate email notifications that clutter our inboxes.
While groups have many advantages (many of which we have not even begun to tap into), there is no excuse for unwanted mail.

If the notifications are getting to you, don't exit the group for that reason alone (the group hasn't even started'll see), just adjust your settings a little. Here's how:

Today when I think of black comedy, "The War of the Roses" is the definition in my mind:
a movie that makes you laugh at the darkest of stuff.
