When and why would I receive notifications?

Various actions can trigger notifications to members of Loop. Some of the changes that trigger updates are:

1.    Someone starts following your research activity.
2.    Someone comments on your content.
3.    Someone shares content with you.
4.    Someone edits a publication on which you are an author.
5.    Someone sends you a message.

Notifications are shown next to your name on the top right-hand corner of the page and new notifications will be indicated by a red marker as seen here:loop_notification.jpg
