[Updated August 19 with Archiving Old Content] Rollout of New Flickr Notifications Center and Settings

Flickr Staff

Leticia Roncero says:

================

9/16/21: Summary of latest reply. If you have further questions or feedback about using the Notifications Center, please write to our Support team. The Recent Activity page will be sunset on December 15, 2021. Our latest reply also lists upcoming improvements that we'll be implementing based on your feedback and additional community feedback that we're taking into consideration.

================

This thread is a continuation of our original post here.

================

Today we’ve begun rolling out the new Flickr Notifications Center and Notifications Settings pages, which will simplify how you engage with other members of the community. We have included an FAQ in our Help Center, but we also wanted to share information and get your feedback here.

We’re expanding the current notifications from the bell icon at the top of Flickr and introducing a new tab for groups you admin. We’re also introducing a new Notifications Center page so you can see your notifications with more screen real estate.

The Notifications Center
The Notifications Center represents the first step to rebuilding the Recent Activity page to function more like modern notification centers. As such, there are a couple of significant changes in the way we’re presenting data in the new design that you’ll experience. To access the Notifications Center, click on the bell icon in the navigation bar at the top of Flickr, and at the bottom of the dropdown, you’ll see the link that used to read “View Recent Activity” now reads “View all notifications.” When you click that, you’ll be taken to the new Notifications Center.

Notifications Settings Page
The new Notifications Settings page, allows you to turn on or mute notifications by type.This page gives you complete control over your in-site notifications as well as email notifications to decide what you’re notified about, how you’re notified, and even how often. To access the Notifications Settings page, click on the bell icon in the navigation bar at the top of Flickr and you’ll notice a new gear icon that will take you to the Notifications Settings page.

You can now control the following web and email notifications:

Web Notifications
- Comments on your photos
- Comments on photos you’ve commented on
- Faves
- Followers
- Galleries
- Groups (you can manage notifications for each of your groups from here)
- Group invitations
- Messages (FlickrMail)
- Notes
- Tags
- Testimonials

Emails we send you
- Activity on you or your photos (Off/Immediately/Once per day/Once per week)
- Group Invitations
- Messages (FlickrMail)
- New followers
- Recent uploads from people you follow (Off/Immediately/Once per day/Once per week)

Group Admins
For groups, we’ve added new notification types to let you know when admins update the group admin blast, as well as group description and rules. Additionally, group admins will now see notifications for the groups they admin as a separate tab so they can easily sort out the priority updates for their groups from personal notifications and from groups they don’t admin.

Please explore these new features and share your thoughts with us here.

* How are you planning on using the new features and how will they be beneficial to you and your activity on Flickr?
* Are you finding everything easy to use or do you have suggestions for improvements?
* As you start using the new Notifications Center, we'd love to hear how it keeps you in the loop with the people you follow and the groups that you're part of. Or, is there activity you feel like you're still missing?

We'll be slowly rolling out the feature to a small percentage of the community, then ramping up throughout the week as we monitor and feel good about the progress.

We really appreciate your time and feedback!

Thanks,

===============

Edits:

March 2, 2021: Staff response to feedback about the option to turn on or off notifications for all groups at once and additional follow-ups.

===============
March 3, 2021:

New ‘Options’ in your Groups page
As we are rolling out the new Notifications, you’ll also see updates to your Groups list page, where all of your groups are displayed. We’ve changed the name of “Faved Groups” to “Pinned Groups” to avoid conflating with the action of faveing photos/videos. Pinning a group will keep that group at the top of your list. There’s also a new column called Options, which lets you manage group notifications, show or hide groups from your activity feed, and more. If you desire, you can use the Options column on the Groups list page to mute/unmute each of your groups.

Group Discussion Notifications
Now, all group members will receive notifications for new group discussions. These notifications were previously only available to group admins and moderators. We hope this keeps you in the loop on more group discussions!

===============
March 11, 2021: Staff response to feedback about group notifications, mention notifications, pinned groups, and new ways to mute all notifications from a group.

===============
March 31, 2021: Staff update on managing comments and persististing notification filters in Notifications.

===============
April 15, 2021: Staff update on the increased size of the Notifications Center page.

===============
August 19, 2021: Notifications updates with archiving old content + changes to the Recent Activity page.

lynnespo181 says:

Right now I get notifications about any activity on my photostream, any responses to my comment on someone else's stream and any flickr messages.
With this new system, I'll get notices on every comment to every photo I've commented on.
Some people get literally a hundred comments, many of which could be group stickies.
But the option only allows you turn off all notices of all comments.
Would that include responses to my comment on other people's photos.They're the only ones I'm interested in.

Based on member feedback, the team made some updates today that should address exactly what you're describing.

The setting to receive notifications when others comment on a photo you commented on is now off by default, but you'll still receive a notification if someone replies to your comment or mentions you directly.

You can control all the settings for individual notifications here: www.flickr.com/account/email

Could you have manged to make things any more annoying with this ? If you could have, please do not show us. You added new notifications to groups and made them all default to ON, without offering an option to turn them ALL off, so instead, I have to sit here and manually go through 700+ groups to turn off notifications that I do not want nor need to get, all while doing it on a microscopic popup window that is smaller than a flip phone screen while sitting at my PC with a huge amount of screen space squinting to see the tiny off button. Highly do not recommend.

Terrible. I prefer the old version. I don't need to see the titles of my work that were fav'd. I also don't need to see admin blasts.

Any way to turn those off?

How about a choice to flip between the new and old version.

I like the old Recent Activity setup much better. Easier to tell what you said and what you said it on - especially when looking back years (to see if people you used to contact are still on Flickr!)

Especially so since it's among those parts of Flickr that still has paged browsing rather than infinite scrolling which is categorically worse to begin with, and Flickr still hasn't fixed the jumping-back issue in the "People" page.

That notifications get a little more space is nice, but it is not a substitute for the recent activity page. There messages, comments are sorted by photo which I find very useful. I do hope that this page is there to stay.

jacklowry47 says:

The Manage link that comes after Groups leads to a pop-up box allowing you to turn on or turn off any notifications for each Groups you are member of.

Could the listing be put into A-to-Z order? It can be annoying when trying to find this one Group you're looking for, but you have to scroll through the whole mixed up list of thousand of Groups and you have no idea where it is.

For anyone who don't want individual settings, but wants all Groups to have the same settings, could there be a separate Main sliding switch that allows you to turn on or off ALL Groups?

If someone choose to turn on or off ALL Groups, could the system be designed to allow individual settings to override the main setting. For example: You turn OFF all the Groups, but go through your list and turn ON only a few Groups. Those few individual Groups will notify you, even if the main switch is set to OFF. (Same with few Groups won't notify you because their settings is turned off, even if main switch is set to on.)

And a Reset button. The idea is that you could switch the main button to on or off, but change few individual Groups, then if you changed your mind, press the RESET button, so all Groups will match the MAIN switch.

Parapan says:

Hi, not sure this was necessary. I do not wish to have notifications from all groups about admin blasts/changes to rules etc. But would like to know when a 'pending' status is changed and an image accepted or rejected. IF I cannot select which notifications from groups to receive, I will reluctantly have to turn them off. Unfortunately at the moment I would have to do that for each group individually. Can you have an option to turn them all off with one on/off slider.

If Notifications is to replace Recent Activity:
Is there a plan to be able to expand to show the new comments directly as Recent Activity does?
Rather than just the notification of a new comment as 'So-and-so commented on “Photo” which requires clicking on each photo to review new comments.

Recent activity was a very nice way to peruse new activity without having to click through individual photos.

Is there a way to link directly to one of the filters of the Notifications page?
E.g. link directly to "Comments on your photos" or "Groups".

This would be helpful in bookmarking directly to such.
I also notice that on refresh of the page, it clears the filter.

Leticia Roncero:

I agree with lynnespo181. Who on earth has got time for all this?!? If someone has commented on something that I happened to comment on weeks ago, why would I want a notification on that ?!? You can't switch off notifications selectively, you can only switch them all off. I'm not active at the moment but when I am I can get 100+ notifications a day (like many people), most of them relevant. I can handle that becuase I won't post a picture or comment on others unless I have some time. But several hundred a day? Come on. If the only options are notifications 'on' or 'off', it'll have to be 'off', just as a piece of pure pragmatism.

It's a great update with one exception - I can't seem to differentiate between seeing replies to comments I've made and other people's comments on an image. I'm certainly interested in being notified of the photographers response to any comment I make as it can lead to a more interactive dialogue but I simply can't keep up with all the notifications of comments other people make on a particular image. Getting a bit overwhelmed with notifications and the important ones are getting lost. Can you separate the two? Many thanks!

I like to be able to go through every comment people have made on a photograph in order. In the past if one person commented on three different photos, I could click on each in turn open them in new tabs and deal with each when I have a time.

Now if someone comments on more than one photo, they get collected into one notification not individual making it harder to select each individual comment - is there a way to revert to the individual notifications not the grouped one.

As I see it on my screen, it's practically a white, empty page - such a waste of space!

katlamsib says:

I think this new design has some weaknesses.

E.g.:

1. If i turn "Comments on photos you’ve commented on" notifications on i get a lot of unnecessary notification on the bell icon. If i turn these notifications off i don't see them on "View all notifications" page.
The previous design allowed me to view comments on commented photos on the "View Recent Activity" page but not on the bell icon.

2. The previous "View Recent Activity" page showed every single activity on the specific photo grouped by photos. The new design shows only the last person's reaction like "john doe and 123 others..." without any means to see who else had reacted. I must go back to that photo and check it manually.

So you gave me a "modern notification system." Those systems are a major reason I mostly do not install social media on my phone. (The exceptions being shutdown most of the time to not harass me with notifications.) I prefer notification systems that sit quietly until I have motivation to look for updates. Nothing on Flickr is important enough to me to rate interruptions for attention.

Reasonable options to shut notifications off. Could use more granularity in some areas like group messaging. Especially could use more control in groups since by default every one is on and you have to manually shut them down one at a time. Still the model is one that is poorly suited to my needs. It is at best workable.

Why fix something that wasnt broke in the first place. The new layout is awful and just creates more work for me. Not cool.

Never mind. I went into settings and then notifications. Then went to Groups and clicked on Manage. That took me to a list of all my groups and an on off toggle for each group. Toggled them all off. Took quite a while as I am in a very large number of groups. Would be nice if you had a MASTER ON/OFF TOGGLE FOR ALL GROUP NOTIFICATIONS. BIG TIME SAVER. And if i want notification from a particular group, I could always turn that on.

Sorry, but this was a horrible update, way too many notifications. And now people who posts in groups get notices when their photos have been rejected (ouch) It makes me want to close my group so I don't have to hurt anyone's feelings. I hope you change it back to the old way, it was much easier to deal with.

If you post to a group where admin selects incoming stuff then I think you must be prepared that your post might be rejected. I like these new notifications. An information that an image I posted to a group has been rejected helps me to understand which kind of images are not wanted for this group, so I won't post something similar next time.

TBH, as a Flickr user since forever, I notice no difference at all.

The only thing I would really value is that the alert bell work rather than hang and/or spin... I already get mail notifications of recent actions on my posts, plus summaries of contacts' new posts, I think weekly.

All good for me. I want no new glut of notices about others' comments upon comments, etc. E.g., in groups/communities. All I want is to be able to reliably and quickly see notices when the bell is lit, which is mostly not happening now as I get more hangs than response to my clicking on it.

I like that they update, but where do I find my old photos? I had more than 800 and now I only have 104 visible

I like that now almost immediately I know if any of my posts have been rejected by the group administrators. I think your efforts and laudable and I am very grateful. Keep the good job!

Sounds like a good improvement. I hope to see custom contact lists in the future. :) There's something in between friends and family and contacts.

It would have been nice to have a choice between the old and new Notifications. I do not like the updated Notifications. It's simply overwhelming!
