The Activity Stream is a tricky issue – we had to fine a balance between too many and too few notifications and how to show them. Every day there is more stuff one can do here and be notified about. And we don't want you to get lost in notifications.
To make things easier we’ve split up the notifications into four tabs:
- All activity: showing all notifications in one stream
- All activity by others here: all notifications concerning you, be it comments or likes on your photos, walls, articles, blog entries and new followers
- All activity by others elsewhere: everything the people you follow were up to: new albums, blog entries or walls – these events won’t show up in the counter above (as we’ve made this one strictly about you)
- All activity by you: everything you did one the site
So what do you think? Is this working for you? Just let us know… and while you are at giving feedback, please also note this article – thanks!
