From iOS I'm used to seeing app icon badges and notifications concerning actvity inside apps. Android is lacking app icon badges but it does have a great notification menu -- except that Google+ notifications (the red counter in the black Google bar on all Google's web sites) don't arrive there. I do see the counter in the Google+ app (in Android as well as in iOS) but on Android there's no notification outside of the app.
I think it's weird that Google's awesome social network doesn't send notifications to Google's mobile OS.
I am hoping that it's merely some setting I need to enable on my phone to make these appear. Right? I very much doubt that I really have to launch the G+ app to see notifications, given that so many other apps use Android's notification methods so successfully.
How can I see Google+ notifications in Android's notification list?
