Relief is on the way. If you’ve noticed an influx of Facebook notifications from brands or publishers every time they kick off a live video stream, you’re not alone.

Now, Facebook has revealed to Digiday that it’s working on a new setting that lets users disable all notifications for live video, to be rolled out in the next few weeks.
