I had so many notifications when I logged in this morning. It was a little less than a hundred. Of course there were some repeated notices that I had to check twice. I was not yet in the mood to make a new discussion because I had to finish all and delete what I have done. Now that I have only 3 notices, I am doing my 119th discussion. I have no serious post to share, but I just want to tell you that I finish everything before I begin another. Well, I sometimes make one discussion too while waiting for my previous post to pick up some likes and comments. How about you my friends? Do you make a new discussion even if you still have tons of notifications?

I have finished about five minutes ago to go through all my notifications, now I am starting to go through the new discussions.

so after your notifications, you check others' new discussions? where do you check the newest? do you 'explore' discussions from your followers or who you follow?

i also do that but I want to have an empty page in my notification, because they will be filled again when I make a new one.

i was busy the past 2 days so i also had a lot of notifications. while the lowered payout is still in place, i'm practicing posting something new before attending to notifications.

that is nice too, but wouldn't you worry if you have not checked the previous notifications and another new ones come again, adding more to the previous?

don't you save your posts on MS word or on drafts if you use your phone? indeed when you have something in mind that you wish to share ASAP, then you would post it at once, right? I did that when I was discharged from the hospital. I did my discussions even without checking my notifications because i did not want every detail to slip away.

i have also learned to use tabs courtesy of my son, my friend. but last Monday, i wanted to make 5 tabs, my son said "one at a time, mama, because the net book might not do its job", and he was laughing when he told me that.

I don't base my starting a discussion on my notifications. I just start one when I have something to really share as a discussion. I like to respond to discussions more.

i observed too that you like, and comment, on my previous discussions and not the newly posted ones, my lady. I think you deal with the older notifications first rather than the newly placed, because you do not want to leave everything unanswered, right? we both belong.

@ridingbet Indeed . I start at the bottom first so everything will be dealt with . Though sometimes since i open 3 tabs simultaneously , one would be from the top while the other two are from below.

@SIMPLYD i also start from the bottom but there are some repeated notifications and i have already answered them all. I wonder why this is not fixed, if there is a glitch? when that red dot with a number appears above my username, it would mean I have new notifications. now, I have 5 so when I open it, the 5 is added to the previous number

@ridingbet I'm actually thinking of something to discuss. I saw it on my FB newsfeed about this working mom whose post went viral. Because she said stay-at-home moms are completely worthless.

@jcj_111776 that is a good discussion to be noticed here, hija. a stay at home mom can still be a productive member of the society, and i hope i can read that newsfeed on FB so i can give my comment as well.

I am just learning how to manage all of the notifications. I know I miss a lot of them because I delete first those that are 3 the same ones so when a person likes, mentions, and responds... I remove to try and manage that better, removing two of the three. And it seems to be working for me for the most part. I'm not sure if that made any sense. By the way, beautiful orchid!

to lessen my notifications, i also delete the like and the mention but i retain the comment; that way, i will know whose comments will i reply, then I also go to their page/wall and check their latest discussions. thank you my dear. that orchid of my mother has not yet bloomed for 2 years now.

it really takes a lot of patience in doing and accomplishing our task of finishing the notifications; good thing my son's net book works, only the erratic net usually gets the fault

@ridingbet , I also first go through all my notifications before I start a new discussion. And then I sometimes go back to old discussions to make sure I did not miss anyone.

do you commit to all your notifications, or you leave ten or 20, before you post your new discussion? when i have a discussion i want to share, i leave 10 notifications then get back to it.
