However, the problem is that you have to leave your current working context in order to get the latest updates. Thus you lose valuable time and your productivity decreases.

Therefor you don’t have to leave your working context. By using an icon in the SharePoint suite bar, the user will be notified about present updates. The number on the icon indicates the count of the latest Newsfeed posts. Similar to known social media sites you simply click on the notifier icon to see your latest newsfeed updates in a popup window. Another great features is that you can reply to the latest Newsfeed posts or even create a new one.
In summary, Newsfeed Notifier provides an efficient way to push the latest newsfeed updates to you without leaving your working context. Therefor you gain an instant overview of all related and important updates and increase productivity in your daily work.
