Looks like Facebook went and changed their notifications settings on us. Just yesterday I received only “important updates and summary emails,” as listed under “Notifications Settings,” which previously constituted Facebook photo tagging and a very small handful of other updates. Today notifications emails were somehow expanded to Groups, Events, Video, and other categories. 

We were able to confirm this across several other Facebook accounts, though not unanimously. In order to customize your email notification settings, select “Account Settings” and then “Notifications” from the left hand column. Here you can see the number of email notifications listed next to each corresponding category.

Select edit to the right of category you desire. Here you can click the letter icon up top to toggle all email notifications on and off. Be sure to click “Save Changes” when finished.
