As you install more apps on your Mac, the number of alerts you receive increases. It would be Calendar event, a Twitter message, a Game Center invite, a software update and so on. In Mountain Lion, the Notification Center offers a clutter-free way to alert you to all manner of events.
Notification from applications appear at the top-right of the screen and can appear as banners or alerts. A banner disappear after a certain amount of time, but an alert stays on the screen until you dismiss it. Clicking on an alert takes you to the relevant app and there are also alert-specific actions for apps such as calendar, where you can select options such as Snooze directly from the alert it self. You can view all of your notifications quickly using multi-touch gestures (assuming you have a trackpad) : simply swipe two fingers right to left to reveal Notification Center, which slides out from the side of the screen.
Notification Center includes all of your recent Notifications organised by application, and enables you to click on each one to view it. You can even update your social networks from within Notification Center icon on your Mac’s menu bar. If you’re busy, you can simple turn notifications off. They’re also turned off automatically if you’re running a presentation in Keynote or if your display is mirrored on an external monitor.
