I LOVE the Notifications ability! It's worth $10 bucks a month to me alone! I love being able to follow an artist with one click and never miss anything they release!
However, following a lot of people (which is awesome), sadly has consequences. The largest being that you often miss Notifications because if I open the menu and "Read" a couple of them, I don't know where I was, and I also don't know how many I had last time when I shut my computer off. And you have to continually open and scroll through 3 results max every time you click or move somewhere. And the "Back/Forward" buttons don't effect it.
What I'm suggesting is simply that the Notifications "dropdown" be changed from the Facebook notifications style of a dropdown to an almost a Facebook messages style so that it's just a list of recent updates sorted by time. And you have to open the link for it to grey out. If you want to clear them all, there would be a "Read All" button. Which, if used, would clear the indicator symbol from the tab item.
And that it be located either: on the left sidebar as "Notifications" tab (preferred), in the Messages section, or in the Follow section.
Here's a rough mockup of what I believe is the most awesome way to solve this:
