I use my Galaxy Tab S once a week. When I start it, it gets overrun with notifications that I've already actioned on other devices. For example, every facebook message, email and weather alert result in a notification if the tablet was not the original device that handled/dismissed the notification. I have to wait while all of these notifications load and then dismiss them all.
I've never had an android device basically act as though I don't action anything on anything else. Is there a setting that I am missing here? I've seen solutions on how to recover old notifications but not how to stop the tablet from marking them as new.

Same problem here. When I get home from work at night, I turn on the tablet and see all of the notifications I received during the day on my android phone.

Shut down notifications in the Facebook app - it will help. If your device is connected to Wi-Fi all day the notifications are firing during the day, not when you turn it on.

Facebook notifications are a constant annoyance with Android. Even if you turn them off everyday when Facebook has new updates the notifications get turned back on. Facebook requires complete access to your tablet if you look at all the permissions that Facebook asks for.

This seems to be a blanket problem across anything that I receive notifications from. I'd basically have to disable all notifications for all apps if I didn't want to be pestered with actioned notifications. There's obviously something baked into android that recognizes that something has already been address on another device as this has been the case with any other android device I own...for whatever the reason, it's not on the Tab.
I just did factory reset last night so see if that might be something that helps. We'll see...
