This is my tip of the day to handle notification overload:
- Just look at "unread" notifications
- Click only on the ones that are of interest to you - I don't check on each "freedom train" notification because I check back there anyway.
- Filter to see "messages" only - That way you will not miss out on any personal one-to-one messages.
- After you have read all your messages and notifications that you are interested in - click on "mark all read".
- Then you are back to ZERO!
