Buzzfeed is a very popular news and entertainment service. Their content is frequently shared on social media, and it’s a great site to browse when you are looking for a laugh, or are trying to kill some time. Their app offers their content in an alternate format, and the popularity of the app makes it likely that most Buzzfeed users will wind up with it on their devices.
However, you may find that you are receiving a lot of notifications from the Buzzfeed app on your iPhone, and that you would like this behavior to stop. Fortunately you have the ability to control the notifications from the apps installed on your device, and you can even elect to stop a specific app from sending you any notifications at all.
