It is a challenge trying to learn to be efficient on the site for sure.

I think you're doing just fine, you've got 47 comments on this at my arrival, that's more than I've ever gotten on any 5 things combined that I've written, lol

oh boy!! me too!! : ) it helps me a little to use my "find" option under "edit" when on my notifications page.. searching for and finding "connected" or "mentioned your name" or "new post" is what I use most.. but especially "connected" so I can at least find those who connected within the last 200 notifications.. which I hear is how many are displayed on the notifications page..

Pleased to discover I am not alone in struggling to find a way to do these things in a time efficient way.

Still learning but I am finding everyone is so helpful and willing to support each other in the process! This is awesome!

I'm glad I'm not the only one having trouble keeping up with all the notifications. Thanks for the info!.

As you know I haven't been around much. Now that our move is over things should change.

I'm here almost one month now and it's taking some getting use to, and going through notifications is pretty time consuming but I do love reading all these different posts - sometimes I prefer reading to posting :)

I was concerned about *keeping up* too, and the social aspect of Bubblews itself. I'm use to writing where the goal is search engine visits, so not doing alot of social stuff, though I'm active in a writing forum. For me here, making connections with people with similar interest, and interesting to read post is key. I use to be active on Twitter, where who you followed, and followers are key. Any platform can be a bit of a learning process, but I'm liking it more. This post (about your keeping up with it all) is a good post inviting interaction. That is something, I'm still working on, post that invite more interaction.

But Im confident that &arvin and his brilliant team is already doing something about this,

yeah, that's also an Issue I havent solved until now.. and I havent gotten across an article yet that gives advice re; where to find the place where I can see my OLD /previous notifications.. because Once I close my browser, they're all gone. i dont wanna miss the posts that my connections have made;

i find it difficult- no- impossible to keep up with all the notifications!

I also have the same concern.. One more thing in the terms of bubblews it says that it is prohibited to exchange comments, like etc... so how do you do this if you see someone posting and you want to comment for me I have a fear because the poster might comment or like back so it is a violation.. when is considered an exchange of likes a violation..

Hi. As someone said connect, comment and like, as much as you can. Good luck .Cheers.

I share the same feeling since am new here and i don't have the full time to write.But every time I open, I try to go through all the notifications i get,then read posts of my connections and leave a comment and hit the like button.I hope I can manage all these in time .

I, too, have been rather slow getting going here and it's nice to find another who has (or, at least, expresses) the same problems that I have with the notifications!

I joined from another program called MyLot and many of the friends I have here are also from there (there was a 'mass invasion' of Bubblews when MyLot stopped its earning program on May 1st!).

Learning to manage one's Notifications is, I find, one of the hardest - and yet probably one of the most profitable - things to do here.

I've been doing that but have so many people commenting on posts I commented on that I really have to hunt through them to find new posts. I've jotted down people I have connected with and search for them. I then look for their latest posts on their profile page. Seems to work better for me.

If your notifications show a person has submitted a new post - that is a person to whom you are connected. You only see new post notices from people with whom you are connected.

I'm trying to figure out how to find out who is connected to me. I guess I need to write their handles down when I see them and then do a search. I'm still trying to figure how to do all of this. It's not quite like anything else I've tried.

I first found out about this site from SideTick too. I agree with what you've said, it does seem hard keeping up with contacts and there is a lot of scrolling through the notifications. At least people are active on here though and there is a lot of interesting content.

Flag this comment as inappropriate

I can't keep up with them all either. I do try my best though.

Flag this comment as inappropriate

I can relate, can be a bit time consuming! But easy to deal with once get used to it.

Flag this comment as inappropriate

Just take your time and learn at your own pace....
I see some of my peeps down in the comments: &blueslite and &Javaman74

I also see a couple of Sidetick peeps: &wordsmatter &pstovall

Great site, find some people that you really love their writing and connect with them. Many bubblers write tutorials so you can scroll through and find lots of help there! Wishing you well, my friend!

It takes a little time to get in the sink of things here. You will go far if you post original content in your posts. No copy and pasting and NO spun articles either. If you don't follow the rules, which are simple, you won't get paid either. From what I can see so far you are on your to having a VERY successful time at Bubblews.

Same here and now I have added classes to my busy schedule.

Hopefully when V3 finally arrives there will be a better way to deal with notifications. Until then most people are struggling along. There have been several posts on different approaches to dealing with the notifications. Everybody has there own theory as to what works best. You'll figure something out. Good luck! :-)

Look at all the great comments you've gotten on this post! It will get easier and easier. Everyone approaches the viewing differently. There's no right or wrong way to keep up with notifications. Just do what you can in the amount of time you have to spare. It's really fun reading the posts and having people read yours. Enjoy yourself and it will all come together.

I too am learning more and more each day. Keep on bubbling!

Lots of folks are hoping there will eventually be a way to organize notifications. The way it is now it can get overwhelming.

Flag this comment as inappropriate

You might not worry about posting on everyone's article all the time, sometimes just go to the categories that interest you and find articles by people you have no connections too!

It is a bit overwhelming at times to keep up with it all. I think I have to give myself a time limit to make sure I do something else during the day.

It's over-whelming at first but it gets a bit easier.
