BuddyPress Live Notification

BuddyPress Live Notification plugins adds a facebook like notification system for your BuddyPress based social network. It shows the new notifications to the user in real time just like facebook does. It is exactly same as facebook notification you are familiar with. So, Here I present the same for you to use on your very own social network.

It works in real time, updates itself in real time and notifies in real time. Whether you Send/receive a message or comment on someone's activity or add someone as friend, It will notify in real time if the user is online.
Here is a screenshot:-


  • Live notification
  • The notification can be anything (like adding friend/receiving message/ groups request/friend request or anything which BuddyPress considers as notification). It is exactly same as Facebook Notification.
  • The Notifier will show the notices of new notification as well as update the notification in adminbar automatically.
  • The notification will be shown even if you are logged in the backend(wordpress admin)
  • If you have the activity comment Notifier Plugin, It will notify when someone even comments on your updates
