Buddy Notification Bell
Version Tested: 1.0.1
Buddy Notification bell is a BuddyPress plugin that adds dynamic notifications plus an audio queue to BuddyPress, in additions the plugin comes with a shortcode to display a notification bell selectively within a page, Whenever the user gets a notification a “bell” will sound and they will be able to click on the notification in order to view the notification.
Installation is a case of downloading and activating the plugin, there are no settings to set but you will need to add the shortcode to any page that you wish to add this notification feature.
This is a simple but effective plugin for adding dynamic notifications to BuddyPress. the additional shortcode add’s flexibility to the options available to the site admin.
That being said the plugin works well enough and means you can selectively add these types of notifications of the pages of your choice.
If I had suggestions for future features it would be the ability to turn on and off the bell sound for each user, and the ability to change the bell sound for the administrator. Not everyone wants to hear a notification and website owners value the ability to personalise their installation.
Overall I give this plugin 9 out of ten. At the time of writing there is no support forum so it’s difficult to recommend completely. The plugin creator does provide an email address for you to contact them however the “half done” nature og the WordPress plugin directory page does not inspire me with confidence.

Brilliant from start to finish
We requested Naveen's help on a customised version of the plugin and he accepted the job. The turnaround was quick, the price was fair and the client was satisfied. I can definitely recommend this plugin and Naveen. Will not hesitate to work with him again in the future.

Unfortunately do not get any sound. Installed the plugin and sent message after message between users on wall, timeline, newsfeed. Didn't get any sound on PC or mobile phone.

This plugin may be good alternative for buddypress notification.
it provide shortcode which you can use wherever you want at your comfortable place in side of header or middle of header just paste that shortcode.
and along with notification it provide bell alert like we get facebook or whatsapp.

I've been setting up and managing BuddyPress social networks for a few years. I moved from Ning and other platforms and have come to BuddyPress looking to make sites with similar features to them.
Plugin Review – Match Me for BuddyPress
Match Me for BuddyPress allows site Admin to set up specific profile fields to be compared between site members, the plugin then displays the resulting match percentage in the members profile cover image area.
Plugin Review – BuddyPress Xprofile Member Type and Member Type Generator
BuddyDev have introduced two plugins that could have significant impact on the shape of how we use BuddyPress site memberships and profile information. With the introduction of the BuddyPress Xprofile member type, BuddyDev have created what could be the beginning of a series of plugins to exploit the ability to assign site members their member type.
For this plugin review I'm going to review two plugins that work hand in hand to deliver one thing - user selectable members type at registration, with the ability to display a directory listing of the members of each type.
