Your Inbox is where all of the activity you’re participating in resides. In addition to that it also shows direct social actions (shares, @mentions and messages) as well as some action notifications like when someone follows you. Selecting an item in the list will populate the content in the bottom view. This interface is fully interactive in that you can share, reply and navigate to the content.
The Inbox has a few options to allow you to filter the information you’re viewing:
- Unread only: similar to an email inbox you can choose to see only the unread updates only.
- Mark all read: marks all updates as read
- Filter by type: @mentions, messages, shares and notifications
- Filter by participant: type the user’s name to filter out who the update involved
You can also opt out of content you are subscribed to by selecting the Hide new activity link to the bottom right of the above screen shot. This will stop any new notifications on the selected item being delivered to your inbox.
