Late last night, Facebook made a subtle change to the navigation bar at the top, it is now locked in place. What does this mean? You now have a view of notifications at all times. Sure you get the little pop up bubble on the bottom left hand corner but now you will see the friend requests, messages, and notifications at all times in the navigation bar.
Look familiar? You guessed it! Both Twitter and Google+ have implemented this subtle improvement to their sites as well over the course of the last month. For anyone who’s ever tried to catch up on News Feed updates and found themselves pages below the navigation bar when they received a notification, this is a welcome change. No more losing your place to find out you only got invited to an event you really don’t want to attend anyway.
