Scotland from the Roadside on Facebook

Scotland from the Roadside runs a popular group on Facebook for anyone who has a connection to or interest in Scotland. It was set up in January 2010 to take us all on A Journey Around Scotland and share experiences, information, photos and videos from all around the country.

The group is open to anyone that lives or has lived in Scotland; anyone that has visited or plans to visit; anyone with Scottish ancestry; or anyone that simply likes the look of or is interested in Scotland. Feel free to join; share your photos, videos and stories; ask questions; make new friends... and generally have a great time!

The following sections include details on:

and (below) how to stop SftR filling up your newsfeed.

Is Your News Feed Filled With Scotland Photos?

Finally, if you really don't want to see all the group photos, etc. in your news feed, but want to remain a member of Scotland from the Roadside you can "unfollow" the group:

  • In your news feed look for the downwards facing arrow to the right of the post;
  • Click on this then select "Unfollow Scotland from the Roadside";
  • You will then be asked to confirm that is what you want to do.
  • Once you confirm it you won't see posts from this group in your news feed, but you will still be a member of the group.

Alternatively you can set your notifications preferences, either for all the posts in the group or for individual posts.

To turn off notifications for the group, click on the Notifications link that appears in the bottom right of the group banner. You then set the notifications to:

  • All Posts
  • Highlights (though I am not sure what this actually means)
  • Friends' Posts
  • Off

For an individual post, click the arrow to the top right of the post itself. A list of options appear, one of which is "Turn Off Notifications".
