In friends option there is a information about notify is on or off. I don't know how does it mean if someone make notify is on instead of remaining notify is off. Do you know? Is it provide special criteria for mylot friends? Or what is it?

That is referring to email notifications. If you have it on then whenver your friends post a discussion, you will receive an email alert and you can respond right from there, instead of having to log into mylot and find your friends discussions via the menu. Hope that makes sense.

If you put notify "on" when that friend starts a new discussion, you get an email. It is great if you have a friend that only posts good discussions that you get involved in. But with most of your friend list, you probably want to leave it "off" so your inbox is not jammed full of emails.

That is enough information for me.. I think it is a matter of prior think to make a friend notify on.

If the notification is on then you will get an e-mail when one of your friends start a new discussion. But, if it is off you'll never know until you go dig around in discussions that your friends started.

That is ok but sometimes it not well for all beacuse.. suppose you have 500 friends & if you get email notification of their discussion or response then your emil box will looking like jam... it is really annonoyed to watch a number of mails which is not possible to cover with in due time or it is really hard to cover or the mails.

notify on has one main advantage. If u put it one for a friend, you will be getting a notification mail when that friend starts a discussion.
