Daily Tip: How to turn off notification emails in Google+

Annoyed by Google+'s constant stream of email notifications and wondering where and how to turn them off? It's amazing how the next generation of social network feels the need to pollute our inboxes with massive amounts of old school email, but not to worry -- it's easy to shut off. We'll show you how after the break.

Here's how to de-clutter your inbox from the deluge of Google+ emails.

  1. Log into your Google/gmail account.

  2. Hit the gear icon at the top right and choose Google+ Settings from the drop down

  3. Uncheck everything imaginable (or at least everything you find annoying.)
  4. That's it, you're done.

If you have any other Google+ tips, or tips for avoiding email "bacon", let us know!
