Hey everyone, something that really helped me is setting up my notifications and personalizing it to suit my needs, so today I'm gonna show you how to do the same.

📌 I highly recommend setting up email notifications!

You can personalize your notifications in a few ways. Just click on this quick video tutorial for help:

If you're more the reading-type, here's a quick summary:

Follow categories

Click on the category you want to follow ➡️ Click the "bell" icon ➡️ set up your notifications. You'll now be notified when someone writes here!

Set up notifications for other actions

Go to your profile ➡️ Click the pink "Edit Profile" button (drop-down) ➡️ Click "Edit Profile" ➡️ Notification Preferences (right sidebar).

You can mark both platform notifications + email notifications to be notified about things like new comments on your posts, when you’re mentioned, new comments on posts you participated in, etc.

Followed Content

Go to your profile ➡️ Click the pink "Edit Profile" button (drop-down) ➡️ Click "Edit Profile" ➡️ Followed Content (right sidebar).

Use “followed content” for an overview of all categories you are following. You can also stop following a category here if you like.

Just wanted to share with you too, in case it helps you to keep an eye on the space(s) you are interested in :) If you have any questions, comment here!
