I have an "alert menu" that currently shows the number of unseen alerts.
Alerts are e.g., comments on status, name tagged, etc.
The indication that there are alerts prompts the user to click on the alert are which shows all the alerts.
Think facebook's alert menu.
I had an idea to clean up the design by removing the number of alerts and instead simply show that alerts exist for the user's attention.
Is this a sensible design choice?
