Turn off annoying Facebook emails

I love Facebook and have connected with several old time friends that I haven't seen in ages. I find though that my inbox is filling up with emails from Facebook, letting me know every little thing all my friends are posting. Is there a way to turn off these emails?

Go to Settings > Account Settings.
Click Notifications.
Now untick all the notifications you don't want to receive.
Click Save Changes at the bottom.

Open FB, click Account, Account Settings.
On the Notifications tab, deselect any notifications you don't want emailed to you.
