Social network, because so many editors link to it inappropriately (usually
referring to Social networking services). However, it's painful to logon and
see a notification that one specific article AND a bunch of other unspecified
articles have been linked to Social network with no way for me to determine
which of several hundred linked articles have been recently linked to Social
network. I'm wondering if the notifications could be changed so that each
individual article linked has a separate, specific notification? Thanks to all
who have worked on the notification project. For the most part, it's been a
positive addition to WP!"
