Will Facebook ultimately dominate the internet – notification changes

AgencyCon IAA Summit

Be ready for additional, mostly unnecessary notifications on Facebook soon. Are users ready for a lengthy list of notifications on a daily basis? Probably, not.

Also, a few of them are aimed at wiping out rivals in that particular space.

For example – like Twitter, notifications on trend stories will now appear on Facebook. In one way, it will keep you well informed and give you an idea for a conversation starter but does this mean less time on Twitter?

Similarly, time hop is like a time capsule that lets you celebrate nostalgia with posts and status updates form the past. Facebook will now have a similar notification.

This latest change will also notify you on nearby restaurants, friends and events, to name a few. It is not enough, that the newsfeed is going through a new algorithm. Hats off to Facebook on winning over people before they can even process these modifications.

Listed below are are some of the notifications, a user could receive-

Birthdays: The reason, so many friendships are still surviving; this notification will update you on all birthdays that you need to know/didn’t need to know.

Life events: Events published by your friends or the ones that took place recently.

Events: It will remind you of the club nights, the book launch event or the latest play. In a way, this notification might just help you make time for the more fun things in life.

Nearby places: If your locations services are on, you will be notified on restaurant and bar updates in your area. The foodie in you can surely rejoice.

Social Media Content Calendar 2019
News shared locally: The stories that are making the rounds in your area will now appear as notifications.

Nearby friends: You need to enable this feature if you want an update on this.

With all these amendments, the aims seem clear – ultimate domination in the internet space.

Are we actually ready for this?
