I don’t know about you, but over the past few months my inbox has been flooded with notifications—”So-and-so is following you on Pinterest,” “What’s-his-name wants to be your friend on Path,” “Bruce Willis is now following you on Twitter!” OK, Bruce Willis isn’t actually on Twitter, but if he was I’m sure he’d be following me. Anyway, dealing with all those notifications can be a pain, but a couple of teen entrepreneurs, Ben Lang and Tim Kendall have taken it upon themselves to make your life easier with Notification Control – a service they put together to let you manage all of your social media email notifications from one place.
Ben and Tim, inspired by MyPermissions, put Notification Control together as a weekend project. Notification Control links to the notification settings pages of most popular social networks, including Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, YouTube, Foursquare, LinkedIn, Google+, Pinterest, Path, StumbleUpon and more, making it easy to clean up your notifications in one sweep. Think there’s a service they should add? Just shoot Ben a message.
Going to each service individually and trying to figure out where to set your notifications is a pain, which is why most of us haven’t done it until now. Notification Control makes the process oh so much less time consuming and annoying. Check it out at notificationcontrol.com and let us know what you think!
