With the rise of social networks, it becomes in inevitable that people make an account on at least most of the big ones. For example, just about everyone, uses Facebook, Twitter or even Foursquare. If you do not, then I am sure you do not really care much about your notifications either. But majority of people do. And it becomes quite a tiresome job to sit and go through all the sites reading your notifications. Most of the times, the notifications are few and far between them and we end up wasting lots of time on the site which spoils what work we had planned for the future. So in this case, a tool that that can bring all these notifications at one place is a very handy thing.
