Facebook Begins Rolling Out Revamped Notifications Tab On Mobile.

The new tab is designed to provide you information that caters to your needs — such as about your favourite sports teams, friends’ milestones like birthdays and life events and updates about the events that you have joined.

Apart from checking out what’s happening in your friends’ lives, is pretty adept at keep you up to date on key information such as birthdays, events and the like.notifications will undergo a revamp on the mobile app as the company plans to introduce a ‘card-style’ of presenting these. made the announcement in a press statement and said that they will start rolling out the expanded notifications to Android and iPhone users in the US first. Once the app knows your location, you will be able to see notifications pertaining to local events and news, weather updates and severe weather alerts, as well as movies playing in theatres near you or nearby restaurants. “To make the most out of Facebook’s new notifications tab, it seems you will have to enable location services, giving Facebook information as to your whereabouts. The new notifications style will let users customise information according to life events or birthdays, Sports scores, TV reminders (based on pages a user likes on ), alerts about upcoming events, etc. That little tab plagued by a tireless numeric red badge that led to an endless feed of social happenings is getting a much-needed upgrade that really heightens its utility.

That might make some users hesitant to try the feature, even if it means not getting these new personalized, location-based notifications,” the report said. Instead of a simple list, mobile notifications are now organized as “cards.” You can tailor or add more cards based on your Facebook activity and location. Starting today, Facebook is rolling out an expanded, enhanced notifications tab that will put that information up front and center, in one central location. The notifications tab is now more of a you-centric newsfeed than ever, sucking in some of the best widgets from the Facebook sidebar on desktop and giving notifications on mobile a much more structured appearance. This newly designed tab will now include a wider range of pertinent information from your Facebook contacts, events you’re attending, pages you’ve followed and the like.

For now, Facebook can only personalise based on pages you’ve “liked”, which isn’t something the average user does a lot, so the predictable next step could be personalised notifications based on data that Facebook collects about your browsing habits, including publications you read regularly or adverts you click on. For example, if you like your favorite sports team or TV show on Facebook, you could see notifications on game scores or reminders that your show is on. To access these updated notifications, you will need to specifically modify the relevant settings–it won’t automatically override your current notification selections. But long-press on your home screen for Now on Tap and we automatically show a card with information about the restaurant itself, plus next actions like pulling up menu or calling or navigating there,” said Behshad Behzadi, one of Google’s principal engineers for Now on Tap.

Both services are a way to leverage data that Google or Facebook have collected on you – your location, social graph, conversations and historic behaviours – to assist you with information and even services before you even have to ask. The impact on you: The redesigned mobile notifications tab certainly looks like it will come in handy, especially if you use Facebook to keep track of your events. Facebook did recently start testing M, a virtual assistant that lets you use Messenger to order food from a restaurant or call, say, Amazon’s customer service to get refund on an item you returned – it combines the powers of human assistants and artificial intelligence. Previously customization in the FB app, whether in regards to notifications or privacy, has focused more on checkboxes of what is and what is not included.
