Facebook, by default, is set up to send you notifications via SMS for just about everything that can happen - comments on posts, friend requests, birthdays, friends' updates and more. The notifications seem to be random as well, sometimes there are none for a while, then all of a sudden a flood. Depending on how active you are on Facebook, these text notifications can quickly become a nuisance. If you suddenly find yourself being bombarded with text notifications from FB, you can turn them off completely or better yet, pare them down to only what's important to you.
iPhone owners have many options when it comes to free email services. Yahoo! has been around for some time, and until recently a Yahoo! account was required to participate in the photo sharing site Flickr. For anyone who has deleted their Flickr account, or who rarely uses Yahoo Mail, there is a simple way to permanently delete your Yahoo! profile.
Flickr has changed hands many times and become less popular with the rise of photo sharing apps such as Instagram. The service recently announced changes to its free account storage limits. If 1,000 images and videos isn't enough, some users may want to purchase a Flickr Pro subscription. Others may decide to move away from the service.
You'd think by now that some headway would have been made against the incessant nuisance calls that we all receive on a daily basis, considering how long its been going on and how many complaints are made to the Federal Trade Commission. Last year the FTC received an average of 375,000 complaints per month according to its end of year report to Congress.
