Survey question isn't specific enough. Do you mean notifications on the site or notifications sent to my email? On site, they are fine. By email, I 'hate em'. I actually tried to shut them off - must have done something wrong but I couldn't so sadly - I set up a filter in my email so they all go to 'trash' - otherwise my inbox was clogged with them. For me personally, I don't need emails telling me that I have notifications. I can see that when I sign into the site. Having the choice is nice since what works for me doesn't necessarily work for others...but not being able to shut them off was a bummer!
