Whenever we register for services online, one information they all usually need is a working email address. Some of them might use it to spam you with offers. But if it’s a genuine and reputed site like Facebook or Twitter, it probably won’t do that. However, that doesn’t mean that they won’t flood your inbox now and then. They would because by default most of the online services have all kinds of notifications enabled and you only realize that you need to disable them once you start getting hordes of automatic notification emails.
Be it a direct message on Twitter or someone tagging me on a post, they never miss anything. Though some may find these notifications useful, to someone like me who already gets bombarded with tons of new mails daily, the notifications are like a pile of waste hogging unnecessary space in my email.
Though these services provide a way to stop these notifications emails through their account setting’s page, it isn’t always easy to figure out where those settings are. And that’s exactly what we are going to address today.
Notification Control is a very simple yet innovative online tool to help you clean the mess in just a few clicks.
When you visit Notification Control, it displays a list of social website names along with their respective logos. All you need to do is click the icon of the service whose notifications you would like to mute.
All these names are nothing but simple hyperlinks to the notification control page in the account settings of each of those services. So if you are already signed into the services listed, and you press the button you will be redirected to that settings page instantly where you could turn off the alerts.
Currently, Notification Control lets you manage Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, YouTube, Foursquare, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Google+, Meetip, Dribbble, Ebay, Forrst, Stumbleupon and Path. If you would like to add more services in the list, you can always mail the creators regarding that.
Notification Control is a simple tool that provides one-stop solution to handle all your social account notifications. The tool takes away the pain of finding the settings’ pages manually to make the changes. The concept is similar to MyPermissions which lets you clean all your application permissions across many online services from one single page.
