Google+ Notifications: How and why to use them

14
Mr. Jingles is a friend you should see often, but not all the time...

Too many notifications can quickly overwhelm your brain

Welcome back to class, today's guest lecturer is Mr. Jingles...We've been over why you should use Google+, and now that we've covered Circles and Communities, it's time to go over something that's almost more important than either of them: Notifications. Yes, notifications in Google+ are important because they can make or break the Google+ experience for you. If you're always flooded with notifications, then you'll eventually drown in them and lose interest. If you don't get notifications often enough, you'll forget G+ is here, or think that no one is engaging you or your content, which makes you feel unwanted and leave. And nobody wants that.

Now, many of the settings and preferences I'm about to reveal are personal, but I will be trying to explain them and explain why you do or don't want to consider them in as objective a way as possible. Your mileage may vary.
