I have to admit, phone notifications are cool on their first release. On the long run, I begin to realize that I do not really need them. They just add up to the stress of my daily tasks and things just keep redundant. It has the same effects as social media sites send notifications on our email addresses.
The point is, you know that there is someone you texted or called you is already a thing in the past way before the advent of smartphones. To be aware of what is happening in Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Foursquare, Periscope, and whatever social media app is absolutely useless. Why do we have to be reminded all the time if we have notifications from these sites if we open them regularly? Do we really have to connect always to the internet? Sometimes, by doing so, we lose touch with other human beings.
Talking about games, Clash of Clans for example, should I be informed that someone attacked my village? It will give me a frown before opening the base. Notifications just add up on the worry. Plus, it consumes so much battery because it keeps our microprocessors busy.
Stop this. I won’t even call this an innovation.
