Grrrrr …. I just realized where all those text messages were coming from, and woke up to the fact that I was being charged for them!

There are settings in Facebook for when you want to be notified.  You can be notified by email, text, or both.  Something I recently installed changed those settings to include text.  Ignoring those text messages is going to cost me some money this month.

I have now found the settings and turned off the text.

Thanks. Maybe mine will be reduced also. I haven't had any since I saw this and made the change a few days ago. Looks like it's working.
