Facebook notifications to changes, Know that how will affect you

The social networking site Facebook is testing and rolling out a new notifications tab that pulls content from across the entire site. An overhaul of Facebook notifications will introduce more features for users in a bid to make the social networking site more dynamic so it can defeat rival networks.

Changes are set to be rolled out in the way you receive Facebook notifications. No timing for the overhaul have been announced as yet - but it is likely to go live first in America before the rest of the world. The tab will contain birthdays, life events from friends, events joined and nearby places such as local restaurants, which will be time sensitive, for example showing place open for breakfast.

Mashable says Facebook wants notifications to "become much more than a perfunctory list of recent behavior, events and invitations". The website says: "Mashable has learned the social network is quietly testing and rolling out a robust new notifications tab that pulls content from across the entire site and serves it up in one central place."

A Facebook spokesperson told site, "We are testing an updated notifications tab that adds additional, relevant content about everything that might be helpful to know on a particular day."

Here is the list of eight sections the your notifications will now include:
  • Birthdays : Your cousin, your second cousin twice removed and that guy you met in Freshers week.
  • Life Events : A list of events from your friends that were published today, happened today or happened recently.
  • Events : The usual suspects: house warming parties, friends’ pub gigs and charity firewalking.
  • Nearby Places : Restaurants and bars in your area. This will only work if location services is turned on.
  • Trending Topics : Much like Twitter trends but for Facebook.
  • News Shared Locally : Viral stories making the rounds in your area.
  • Today in the Past : Showing status updates and photos from you’re not-too-distant past. Cue cringe.
  • Nearby Friends : This only works if you have enabled the feature on your mobile.
