Before I stand up to watch my favorite afternoon television series, I would like to post this discussion about intentionally deleting in my notifications list. Now, don’t be fooled. I am not deleting the notifications regarding comments from you, my friends. What I delete are the ‘thumb-up sign’ signifying the likes to my discussions and comments. It actually adds to the number in the list. I guess I have to make some changes in my settings. I retain the ‘@’, ‘arrows left’, and ‘double arrows left’. How about you? What are in your notifications list?

i did that too. getting notified with comments and replies gives us the enthusiasm to respond back and also check the commenters' discussions as well.

My notifications include those who liked and commented on my posts. I also get notifications whenever someon liked my comments and if someone replies to these.

I disabled my likes soon after I started here, otherwise they are overwhelming.

yes, and basing from your likes and comments in your discussions, your notification page might be two pages already.

@ridingbet That's true, and I certainly don't want the unnecessary ones like the 'likes'.

@jaboUK it is really wonderful to check our notifications with comments and responses. for me, it gives me a sense of gratitude because it may mean that my discussions and comments are read by others.

I also did turn off notifications for likes, I only receive notifications for comments so that way my notification page won't be too flooded.

this morning, likes still appeared, but i also noticed an abrupt drop of my notifications, because the thumb-up signs are nowhere.

@ridingbet It is a good move to turn off notifications for likes. It will make your notification list shorter.

yes indeed. seeing a hundred notifications makes us feel great, but it is also tiresome to attend to them as well.

My notifications include likes, comments and mentions. Haven't really thought to change them honestly.

I've disabled the notifications for likes. It took me long enough to decide to do it.

it somehow reduces our notifications. the previous days, i had more than a hundred notifications, but when i disabled the likes, my notifications only reach more than a 50.
