Facebook has several billion member services and most of the times, an average user uses two or more services offered by the company. As it can be annoying to check your notifications separately, Facebook has decided to introduce a unified method to read all the notifications at the same time. The social media platform recently started to test the new feature with two of the most popular services Messenger and its photo-sharing arm Instagram, is testing a feature that will show users notification counters from either of the other two apps, and allow them to switch among the three seamlessly.
This new feature should help you to stay in touch with everyone and help you to increase the level of engagement. The company recently confirmed to TechCrunch, “We are conducting a very small test to make it easier for people to discover and connect with the people and things they care about. We’re exploring ways to help people switch more easily between their Facebook, Messenger, and Instagram accounts.”
If you are one of the users who are currently part of the test, you will be able to change one app to another by tapping the profile icon at top of the corner for any Facebook owned applications. All of the applications will include total number of applications you have to make it easier to monitor your social media activity.
