    As your friends/fans list grows it becomes an email blizzard to keep up with who is doing what and when.  As I like to comment on others' hubs I've found I can't do it any more for the volume of email notifications.

    For the past 2 weeks I've had to turn off notifications and still have another 2,000 emails to go thru.

    Is it possible to place all the notifications for the week of all a person's friends list all in one digest once a week?  I'd like to see the author's name, then the link to their latest hub, then a short description. 

    That way I could go on down the list to make comments for them without the usual hunt and peck routine going thru each email one at a time because I don't know the subject or have to go into the email to get the link.  You would see a lot more participation from people if you could offer something like this.  Thanks for the listen...

        That is what I like about Gmail, it puts emails from the same person or with the same title in a single thread.

        I totally agree that this thing is a great idea and it would help;
        possible, that's why I don't get anyone to comment on my hubs!
        No one has the time to read or is hard to stay organized and do it!
        (for a while I was discouraged and stopped writing! - what a shame for me!)

        Looking forward to see this happening!

          The best way to get people to comment on your hubs, is to comment on other hubs first. It doesn't sound right, but I've seen a huge increase in comments because I'm commenting on others. Plus it helps your hubscore.

    2000!?! I thought I was getting backlogged!

    In the meantime, you could just turn notifications off and then use the "fan groups" (something to that effect) button in your account section to do pretty much what you described.

      Thanks! Great advice in lieu of a weekly digest.  Still would like to see a digest as could see more than one latest hub.  This also only works when you become a fan of those who become a fan of you - which I always do.

      But definitely this is a doable alternative, thanks so much for stopping by with the solution!  A shot of celebration tequila coming your way! smile
