Facebook is making efforts to make its countless elements that rob the apples less distracting with a new personalization test for notification. According to the application researcher and reverse engineer Jane Manchun Wong Facebook is currently testing the ability to include and exclude the red notification points known as badges that you receive for separate sections of the company's mobile application. , if you do not care much about Watching or Groups, you do not have to watch another bright red badge number that requires your attention.
According to TechCrunch this is a global test for iOS and Android. "We are testing new ways to give people greater control over the notifications they receive on the Facebook app," a spokesman for Facebook said.

As John Herman wrote in the New York Times last year entitled "How Little Red Dots Have Done Their Life," the modern design of the notification has been refined and calibrated over the years to maximize the likelihood that the average the user of the phone touches an application icon or an application icon after it has already been downloaded.
"What is so strong in the points is that, while we study them, they can mean everything: e-mail for career change; a reminder that winter sales are over; match, date, "we need to talk," Herrman writes about the devastating hypnotizing effect that even the small, fine element of design can have on our brains.
A number of technology companies have had a comfortable awakening lately about the effects their applications and services can have on both people and society and efforts are now being made to help us better manage our relationship with technology. This is mainly due to the application usage monitoring and notification settings; Apple uses Screen Time for this, and Google is called Digital Wellbeing.
While Facebook does not have its own equivalent that is friendly to the keyboard, although has mainstream apps and Instagram – it seems likely that the company will think long and hard about how to help users better adapt their mobile experiences and avoid unnecessary distractions.
