Granular control on notifications

When I follow someone on the network I start getting notifications about all their activity, which is fine except it adds a lot of noise and its very trivial to lose interesting ones for example when someone posts a new story.

IMHO, activity like commented (or similar if in use - liked, shared, etc) should/could be excluded from notifications and shown on the homepage feed?


Atleast having the ability to mute specific types of activity would be nicer. Here is an example:



Start a personal dev blog on your domain for free and grow your readership.

3.4K+ developers have started their personal blogs on Hashnode in the last one month.

Write in Markdown Β· Publish articles on custom domain Β· Gain readership on day zero Β· Automatic GitHub backup and more

To the notification of activities -- liked, commented, shared -- my suggestion is to reduce the size of those notifications to a single line, unless we are personally mentioned in some comment, etc. (I hope you get what I'm trying to convey here.)

Hey Mrugesh Mohapatra
Thanks for raising this. We are considering this and bringing other upgrades too to the present notifications system.
