Updates:

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.

9/08/21: Acknowledged feedback regarding seeing the total number of faves that a photo has and seeing all of your photos that someone has recently faved (currently notifications is only surfacing 12)

8/17/21: Acknowledged 2 known issues (slow loading and not seeing recent faves)

=======

Today, after months of development, feedback rounds with our members, and hard work, we are continuing our rollout from 25% to 100% of the new Flickr Notifications Center and Notifications Settings pages.

What does this mean?

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

What’s new?

The Notifications Center
The Notifications Center is a rebuilt version of the Recent Activity page designed to surface all of the latest activity related to your Flickr 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, where you’ll be able to access all your notifications, filter your notifications by type (ie.: faves, group invitations, comments on your photos, etc.), and check the latest activity on your photos, groups, and conversations.

Notifications Settings Page
The Notifications Settings page allows you to turn on or mute notifications by type. This page gives you 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.

Group Notifications
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. If you’re not interested in receiving group notifications, you can turn them off on your Notifications Settings page. Please note that there’s no option to turn off notifications for all groups at once, so please be intentional about which groups you mute.

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, and will ensure you get notified of any new group discussions posted to that group. 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. To pin a group on your Groups list page, select the Options column three-dot menu next to the desired group and choose “Pin to top of page.” If you want a group pinned to the top of the page, but you don’t want group notifications, you can mute the group from the same menu, or from your Notifications Settings page.

Comment modal in Notifications (how to see all comments made for one of your photos)
When you click on a comment notification from the Notifications Center page, you will get a modal that lets you scroll through all the comments on the photo without leaving the Notifications dropdown or Notifications Center. You can also reply to the comments from that modal. For people who like to go through all their comment threads without context switching, this should be a useful workflow for you now.

You can see a video demo of this in action here.

Archiving (changes to how some notifications are presented)
With these changes, you’ll now see notifications for recent activity on your photos, discussions, and groups, rather than seeing every previous interaction associated with that photo/video/group, etc. Let's take an example:

In the old format, let's say I had uploaded a photo five years ago, and it had 45 faves already. If a couple of folks named Pat and John came along and faved it today, the notification would read, "Pat and John and 45 other people faved your photo." We were showing the count of the entire history of faves on the photo in the notification, even though some of the faves might have been five years old.

In the new format with this hypothetical example, you'll get a notification that says, "Pat and John faved your photo." We're surfacing what has happened recently and seems most relevant.

Likewise, we've changed some of the models for how notifications are presented, with the intent to cut down on the noise when, for example, one person faves a bunch of your photos. In the past, if Pat faved ten of your photos, you would have received ten separate notifications. With the new model, we'll now simply show you a batch notification that says "Pat faved ten photos'' with thumbnails for those ten photos. Here is a visual example.

Changes to the Recent Activity page
If you regularly use Recent Activity, you're going to notice a change to the navigation at the bottom of that page. Because we are archiving old notifications as described above, we're not able to maintain pagination at the bottom of Recent Activity. So where you previously could see page 1, 2, 3, etc., until the last page, you will now use a "next →" button to navigate. We’ve added a "start" button as well so that you don't have to use the back arrow on your browser.
If you notice that items you previously muted are showing up for you with new reactions in Recent Activity, this is due to the way the archiving data is stored. If you want to mute comments on a particular photo/video, for example, you’ll need to do that in the new Notifications to have it work on Recent Activity.

If you still regularly use Recent Activity and haven't explored the new Notifications, now is a good time to try the new system. We have spent the past few months monitoring the performance of this new experience and working to incorporate feedback to make sure that everything that you can view in Recent Activity is available in the Notifications Center or elsewhere on Flickr. We are keeping Recent Activity while everyone gets used to the new notifications center, but our plan is to eventually remove this page and focus on making notifications the go-to experience for keeping up with your activity on Flickr. We'll continue fine-tuning notifications, so if you notice anything that doesn't appear to be working as it should or you're unable to accomplish a specific workflow in notifications that you could in recent activity, please let us know here. We've also included an FAQ in our Help Center.

Answers to some FAQs about the new Notifications Center:

“The new system is missing some notifications. For example, I can’t find [X] notification type.”
We built the new Notifications Center with feature parity in mind, which means you should be able to see all the same types of notifications (and other new ones) that you used to see on the Recent Activity page. If you have lots of new activity that you need to manage, the Notifications Center page lets you filter your notifications by type. For example, show only notifications for comments, or only for group invitations, etc. You can select different filters depending on what you want to see. Click on the “All Notifications” dropdown at the top of the notifications list to apply filters.

“On the Recent Activity page, I was able to see individual replies and comments without having to open the actual photo page.”
You can do this from the new Notifications Center as well! When you click on a comment link from the Notifications Center page, you will get a modal that lets you scroll through ALL the comments for that image. You can also reply to the comments from that modal, without leaving the Notifications Center page.

“I want to see the list of people who faved my photo(s) without having to navigate to the actual photo page.”
Similarly to how we brought the comment modal into the new notifications after feedback that folks wanted to be able to see all the comments on a photo without having to go to the photo page, we are looking at how we can bring the fave modal that is currently on the photo page (e.g. “[person 1], [person 2] and [n more people] faved your photo”) into the Notifications Center and under the bell icon. We’ve wanted to update that modal component to have more functionality, so this is a perfect time to do so. We’ll work on that after we get 100% of the community into the new system.

Absolutely awful and horrible! I really hate it!

What are they doing with the website? It feels like they want to destroy it.

It has lost the simplicity of activity on the photos - the comments, faves......I look at it and it feels like I have to learn another language.

I can't see who has commented or faved so easily.

The layout is horrible and meaningless. It is so bad that I don't feel like I am even looking at my own work!

It is a 0 out of 10 for me.

VERY complicated, now lots of notifications that admins have done this or that or groups have changed some minor detail. Now really stuck trying to work out if and how to stop useless info cluttering up everything. Tried settings but it's just so vague and limited in actions and explanations, major head-scratching time, a real drag.

I really don't like it.

What a chaos, I am only interested in favs and comments on my own pictures.

For me this is the same as no notifications anymore, because I will not read all this stuff to filter the ones that concern me.

Please please turn it back to normal!

I have mixed emotions about it.

In a way I like to see who is rejecting my photos.. tells me what groups to leave! And I have left many already today!

Do we really need to know when someone updates their group descriptions? It is kind of annoying.

And I am actually very discourage now by how often my photos get rejected.. I will probably stop posting photos and not renew my Pro account..

Igor_Romanov says:

New notifications are a horrible mess. Why fix what wasn't broken? Even changing the settings, what I don't need to see is a notification every time a pic gets accepted into a moderated group. I don't need a notification for everyone who comments after I do. Also, seeing pics from people I follow should always be "Immediately" by default, not defaulting to once a day.

Even after visiting the notification settings, there is a lot of mess that will still appear, stuff that shouldn't. Just stop already.

What you should have been working on is why links go dead on the browser after so many minutes. They load in the url window, but the pages don't update. You end up having to click on the link in the url window to load the new page. I have tried this on multiple browsers and the problem is the same everywhere. This is really misguided UI/UX on SmugMug's part.

ShellyS says:

Wow, now I can see what folks have been talking (and many complaining) about. My first impression is that it's workable. I swapped the notifications page with RA to make it my new landing page. I turned off a few options as I don't want to keep filtering for type of notifications. I use the Groups page and Group Discussions, so prefer not to see group notices in the Notifications page. I really wish there had been a Select All under the groups option and I was really happy I'd weeded my groups to under 250 a while back, but it still was tedious turning off every one of my groups. But it's done now and other than a sore wrist, I shouldn't have to worry about that again. I can just turn off notifications for any new group I join or create. Still, I do feel for folks who might want to turn off a thousand or so groups.

Anyway, now that I have the new notifications, I'll be able to take it for a spin and see how it works.

ShellyS says:

The most recent notification I'm seeing is from a month ago. The most recent ones on the RA page were within the past 24 hours. I assume this is a glitch but right now, it's making the new notifications page useless for me.

Edited to add: And now it's up-to-date. Hopefully, that will continue to be the case. :)

I haven't used notifications much in the past because it was so inaccurate, missing a lot of activity. I will monitor it for awhile to see if you have solved that problem.
Another problem I see is the new notification page uses the real name of my contact, whereas the activity page shows the user name. I sometimes don't recognize the real name, but I almost always recognize the user name.

I think it is interesting to see when an admin approves or doesn't approve a photo, but again I just received a notification that one of my regular contacts favored two of my photos when the recent activities page shows he favored four. It also seems to be a bit slow to refresh compared to the Stats and Recent Activities pages. Right now, I really don't trust it.

Leticia Roncero:

The roll out of new notification has made the Recent Activity a mess. It is a very useful gateway for many users. Can you use some resource to sort out the chronological order of RA?

I have been a loyal user since 2009, I never used the Bell. What is the logic of rolling out something but knowing very very well it would "upset many RA users"????

You closed the RA thread while leaving problems unresoved, please don't close this thread again.

" P@tH Im@ges " says:

Its total rubbish and getting more complicted.Its difficult enough to Fave people who fave your photos already. The recent activity only give the last ten people who faved or commented on your photo so thats no good either. Recently I was lucky enough to have been graced with over 500 faves on on one of my photos. It took me over 7 days to find the people who did so with scrolling backwards and forwards forever. Its a wonder my cumpuer is even working ar this stage.. I would expect the drop down box to show at least the last 100 faves and stay open in stead of closing everytime and why does it show the other persons favourite firsts? That function can be found elsewhere. People main complaint of flickr is the entire interface. Thank you. Pat.

Well, it looks almost like in the mobile app, which is a bad news. :-(

The worst change of all is missing the ability to see "what happened on each photo in last day" directly in the listing.
Being able to see only last single comment on each photo makes it useless. And showing all comments in a dialog doesn't help either.

Hope that not seeing recent faves on my photos at all and seeing my 5 year old faves on other people photos instead is just a bug and not a feature...

If you want to do something constructive for us, fix Explore. I am Delawares top photographer, and I only have time for 20 followers, unlike all the idiots with 2000+ followers. No one has the time for that. If I have 200 looks at a pic of mine, I will give myself an Explore, because you will not. I have more impressive photography than 98% of those on here. I am published, sell out photo books, and give my work to hospitals, police stations, nursing homes, etc. I am independently wealthy, and should probably start a better version of Flickr myself.

There's an old expression "If it ain't broke, don't fix it". This new notifications is just busy and annoying. Why don't you fix the tags option. If I'm on a PC and want to add a multi-word tag, I have to write all the words together without spacing or put periods between each word. This doesn't occur when using my phone (which I rarely do).
But to mess around with an option that was functioning properly and quite good as it was, well I feel like someone was trying to justify a paycheck.

I like it, time it was modernised!

I like the fact that as an admin of groups when I make changes members will be notified because as it stands now, any new updates I make in discussions is completely ignored.

Frustrating, annoying and a total step backwards. Someone making changes for the sake of change.

I don't like this it's just a bit too much. Do we have an option to turn this off?
Can you just leave it the way it is? Thank you

I do like that now you can switch to check notices on the groups you admin. Just like any change, it's going to take a little to get use to. People will either love it or hate it. I don't hate it, don't really love it right now.

If I'm on a PC and want to add a multi-word tag, I have to write all the words together without spacing or put periods between each word

There is a better way, write the multi-word tag phrase followed by a comma! The comma will not show in the tag and the space between the words will be there.

No me gusta nada. Tendremos la opción de continuar con “actividad reciente en mis fotos” ?
Caso contrario me plantearé seriamente, dejar la aplicación.

Like a couple others have said, I hope you get the bug fixed where faves show's what I faved from 5 years ago instead of who faved my pics.

Mostly I think I'm ok with what you've done, at least after the bug fixes.

edit: I figured out if I go into activity settings the default notification for faves is off. So that's why I was seeing my 5 year old faves. I think the default setting should have been different but at least I figured that out.

I'm really not enjoying this new look one little bit. I usually have a quick peep on the phone to see if anything's happening on my page, but now it's gone all weird, and unless I click on an actual photo it doesn't show new stuff. Nope, it just doesn't 'feel' right. :(.

I began on Flickr in 2008. I have seen a lot of changes in the how we do it since then. Some of them I find easy to use, and some I wish it was the way that it was...

I like it best when things are easy to use.

We have busy lives, and we want to enjoy our Flickr experience, and at the same time not take a lot of time to do it, when it could be done more easily.

I have recent activity as one of the favorites on the computer that I use.

When I go to Flickr, that is where I start. It is wonderful to easily, and quickly see what is going on.

Pease put recent activity back the way that it was.

Thank you for reading what I wrote.

The new Notifications feature seems VERY slow compared to the old Recent Activity feature.

Another shocking update!
New buzz words like "screen real estate" don't work for me.
Have been trying to access recent activity all morning to no avail.
Using Firefox
Also had logging on issues on mobile, using Chrome.
When Recent activity page has loaded it shows No acivity for 7 Days
when I've been active for the last 7 days with comments and faves etc.
So sorry but not good at all. Will be taking a flickr sabbatical . .
