I think we should be able to customize what kinds of push notifications we get on our phones from the app.
At the moment, we can only either turn notifications off completely or leave them all on. So if someone wanted to only get push notifications for new posts, or a mention, they would also have to be flooded with comment, follow, and like notifications.
This feature would give us the option to turn on or off certain types of notifications instead of just all of them. So far, the types of notifications we have are follows, likes, comments, rebytes, mentions, and post notifications. This feature would allow users, for example, to turn off everything except mentions, or have only comments and mentions on. Basically, it would give users control over what they are notified of.
While mentionting notifications, some other types of notification that could be useful (to both push notifications and the activity feed):
- Milestones (10k followers, 100k loops or 1k likes (per video or on entire account), etc)
- When your video is featured in spotlight
- When your video hits the top (top 3, 5, 10, etc) on a category/hashtag/etc
- When your comment is liked by the creator of the video you commented under
Also also, group similar notifications?
