Your Homepage on Disqus

People are talking passionately all across the network of Disqus-powered sites. There's never been one place to find new discussions to join about the topics you care most about. Your homepage on Disqus is where you can find everything you might care about across the Disqus network in one place.

Home provides a truly integrated experience for channels, people, and sites you follow. See whenever a new article is posted on a site that you follow, every time a friend replies or upvotes your comment, and whenever someone follows you. Also, you can now reply to other users and vote on their comments from within your Disqus Home feed.

With Home on Disqus, you'll be able to find new content, and check out the articles and updates from people you already follow, all in one place. 

Here's a snapshot of what you can find in in Home:

Inbox: View all of your notifications in one place with the ability to reply and follow from your notifications feed. Get notified of replies, upvotes, discussions you've been invited to, and follows in the Disqus embed or in Home.

Recommendations: Community recommendations are a central feature of Disqus Home. When you ♥ (“Recommend”) a discussion, it shows up in feeds of people following you. If you follow communities and people, you’ll see what discussions are getting recommended by others.

Your favorite feeds: Switch between each each to see the detailed flow of comments and discussions around you.

User profiles: A revamped user profile shows off what Disqus users are interested in and talking about. Also, if you're in a conversation with another user, you can now reply to them from their profile. 

Where are my notifications? 
When you get a new notification, your Inbox icon in the main navigation will change color and display the number of unread notifications that are waiting for you. When you click on the icon, you'll be taken to your Inbox.
