Turn off the annoying new Facebook sounds

Don’t be that person – the one with the obnoxious sounds coming from your phone. Loud rings and overheard conversations are bad enough but now a recent Facebook update has added some new, truly irritating sounds. The sounds are automatically turned to ON as a default. Turn them off. Now. Please. Thank you. You are welcome. And, thanks Steeleworker Patti Martin for the tip inspiration.
