So if you are among those users then here is what you can do for it.
Actually facebook allows you to manage facebook email notifications thereby enabling you to recieve the email notification for only those things in which you are interested.
So, How to manage facebook email notifications? Well you are not required to do much for this, just a simple tweak in facebook notification settings will do it for you. Follow these steps to get it done.

Step2: On this Notifications page you can change the facebook email notification settings. On this page you can find various actions that involve you.(few of them are shown in the screenshot below).
