New notification types in What’s new feed

with 2 comments

When the Live Spaces What’s New feed launched last October there were 6 different types of notification prevalent. They were:

  • Photos – album title and thumbnails of up to five recently added photos
  • Files – folder title and icons of up to five recently added files; you can hover to see the file name as a tooltip
  • Blog entry – blog entry title and a text snippet from the
  • Lists – list title and the number of items in the list
  • Profile updates – a list of profile fields that were updated
  • New friend – when a friend (or messenger contact) of yours adds a new friend, you see the new friend’s display name and a link to invite them to be your friend (if they’re not already your friend)

    The new wave 3 version of Windows Live Messenger is a pointer to a whole new raft of notification types coming our way. Here’s some that I’ve picked up on so far:


    Something to do with adding web activities. I can’t wait to find out what those are.





    Changing Messenger photo



    Messenger status changes


    Photo tagging



    Favo(u)rite movie lists (I’m guessing this is something to do with the iLike web activity above)



    Blog comments (yeahhhhh. I’ve wanted this for ages)



    Anyone spotted any more?
