oh!! I completely never got that at all. Never could figure out what that blue bubble was since it didn’t seem to correspond to anything. Except now that I look at it… I think I remember why I ignored it. Isn’t that ANYTHING that personally involes you, including people “liking” your posts? Frankly I couldn’t especially care less about who likes my posts or how many likes I get, so that bubble basically always tells me stuff I don’t care about, so I’ve learned to ignore it. And threads get blue bubbles over them all the time despite there being no new personal mentions of me at all. Again maybe this is just people “liking” one of my replies in a thread? Utterly pointless and confusing IMO. Is there a place we can turn that particular notification off? If it only showed a blue bubble on specific name mentions, I’d be very pleased.
But that’s just it, blue does not appear to always mean something specific for me, unless you’re including “likes”. I want to know when someone specifically addresses me, so that I know to pop into a thread I might otherwise not be following. Right now I seem to see blue every time someone even “likes” something I wrote, which has just trained me to ignore the blue bubbles entirely.
