  1. I’ve done this multiple times on my iPhone but the sound will come back on and I have to turn it off repeatedly. It’ll work for a brief time but that’s it. Very annoying!

    • It’s definitely annoying when Facebook sounds keep reappearing after you turn them off. If you wish you can try an extensive approach like uninstalling and reinstalling the Facebook app. This can sometimes clear corrupt settings or data causing the issue. However, remember to back up your data before reinstalling.
