Facebook off-switches do not work

So back when I was stupid enough to have a FB account, I got bombarded by "your friend is playing [game] and needs [action] from you!" shite.

There was an off switch for this, which was apparently totally ignored, as these messages never stopped. This was a major reason I left.

So what assurance do we have that this works? I'll take that to be "none"
