Notifications for Messaging and Social Posts
About audible notifications
Notifications for individual and group chats are always on by default. Notifications for social posts are a little different. You receive a notification when a social post is first created and shared with you. Notifications for comments are off by default to avoid excessive alerts. Use the same toggle in the information menu to unmute notifications for comments.
Many apps have bright, in-your-face notifications in their apps when you receive a new message or friend request for example. Village is different with subtle indicators to let you know when there's something new.
When you have a new message or social notification, the icons for each of those pages will become filled either grey or green.
