Clean Email Notifications with Notification Control

Notifications Control

We all hate the spam that we receive from the services that we sign up, and this doesn’t exclude Twitter, Facebook and other popular sites. They’re all around to monetize and by default, thrust you with emails to get you to their site. While it is possible to turn off email notifications by yourself, it can be a pain to have to navigate through tons of pages especially if you have a slow connection.

Notification Control lets you click on a link to a popular site (like Twitter, Facebook) to directly land on the email preferences page so that you can turn-off unwanted notifications by yourself.

If you follow this blog regularly, you’d also remember about My Permissions, a very similar service that provides you with shortcuts to app-permissions on popular web sites.

2012 is definitely turning out to be a year for aggregation-based like these which give the user with a shortcut to turn-off options which, otherwise can be pretty subtle.
