In the past few months, Facebook for Android has received several improvements in its design and experience of use. However, the crisis of the coronavirus has increased the traffic of users in social networks, and this has a number of consequences.
The most direct is that the greater the time of use by each user, the number of interactions also increases, something that can overwhelm us at some point. Perhaps the only thing you want is to enter calmly into Facebook to see the photos you posted of your mother and do not meet the 300 notifications of things that they are doing all of your contacts in a period of boredom. And Facebook knows it.
Facebook for Android now has a silent mode to be quiet during the time you need
Well-being digital is a great tool to have a control of our mobile phones, but you still can’t have a control of notifications scheduled and granular at the same time.
One of the advantages of Android that we like is the notifications, being able to mute each type of notification, or even activate a powerful not to disturb that hides virtually all the notifications. The problem of these modes is that they are designed at the system level and we can’t “just silence Facebook a while” while the rest of our mobile remains the same. This problem requires the direct intervention of the application itself, and that is what they have done.

The silent mode of Facebook silences the majority of notifications from Facebook that we should not be bothered by the application. It is a mode that is easy to access from the settings of notifications (which will now be more visible to the users), and that when it is active it will indicate us that we are in such a way to remind us to make a moderate use of the application.
This function should be unfolding from the last few hours, so you may need to update the app or wait for the server to deploy the new functionality in your device.
