Facebook has changed a lot in 2015. From the new mobile profiles to its ads manager update, there’s not a single section that hasn’t been redesigned or overhauled. Or not… It looks like Facebook has not still changed its notifications tab, but this is about to change as well.
The upcoming changes, which will be rolled out gradually in the next few weeks, Facebook is employing the ever-growing popularity of “cards”. The social network will be displaying information about events, birthdays, or page updates in the form of cards. So far, there are more than 10 types of cards available on Facebook, each one tailored for the different type of notifications they represent.
What’s interesting though, is that the new notification tab will not just offer the standard birthday, likes and events notification, but it will also offer a variety of other content types for its users to explore and engage with.
For example, if a user has recently liked a sports page, then he or she will receive updates on upcoming sports events. Moreover, you will get reminders about events that you’ve RSVP’d to, or be notified when a friend is visiting or is nearby.
It goes without saying that Facebook will give users the opportunity to customise the content they want to see. From re-arranging the cards, to disabling them completely, the ultimate goal is for users to have total control over what they see. These features promise to give notifications the glory it deserve.
