Yes, shout notifications are currently in development.  I'm not sure about follower notifications just yet, I'll raise it with our design team.

Email notifications are a little more involved and will come later.

Hey, I don't know if there's an update on if we're going to get notifications for when someone follows you? I think that would be incredibly helpful and it could possibly even get a little bit of user interaction going again.

What about the e mail notification when a new message is in my inbox? Any update?

It's time we had this facility, surely not rocket science! I so rarely log onto LFM (since the massive change) these days but knowing if someone has left a shout or message via email would be useful.

Email notifications were planned for later this year, but we're a few months behind schedule on a major upgrade project which has pushed our other plans back.  When I have more concrete info I'll be able to update this thread, but I'm not expecting this to happen until early next year, sorry. :(

I think replies on shouts you've left in shoutboxes should also get a notification of some sort, if you leave shouts in several shoutboxes it's impossible to remember to check on them if there's no notification.

Yep, I believe that's what we're going to be doing.

I agree on email notifications for inbox messages and shoutbox. That would be great. I mean, I am always logged in, but it would be nice bc I get emails to my phone so I can respond quicker :)

i am really struggling to stay with last.fm.... i never really saw a site move to improve... and then take most of the stuff everyone liked out? the email notifications of shouts, the personalized home page,  the awful integration of spotify... and so on.

Has there been any progress on this. It's kinda annoying that you don't get a notification when you get a new follower, I never notice it when someone new follows me. And I would love for other people to get notifications when I follow them so it'd be more like a 'friend request'. I have tons of friends who don't follow me back because they don't know I'm following them. I hope you guys are still working on this.

I hope we will receive a new update soon. Jon said Email notifications were planned for later this year, but that was seven months ago. The new database is finally finished. The same goes for the new site's layout.

Are there any updates? It's been nine months since we got the latest announcement. I have plenty of people on my following list and only a small number of them is aware that I'm following them.
