Nowadays, we use internet a lot especially the social media platforms. Using social media also indulges in taking part in group discussions, debates and Q&A solving in online forums. There are several forums like Google Groups, Quora, mailer lists, Google discussion boards and so on. While using Gmail, these mails may end up assimilating in your Primary mail tab. We get hundreds of emails through out the day and different types of mails from different senders clutter the primary mail box. It will be of great help if we can separate the forum discussion mails . So can we get a separate tab for this? If you are using Gmail, then surely you can. Gmail has by default three tabs, Primary, Promotional and Social. The Primary tab organizes the important emails, while Promotion tab gathers all promotional offers from different websites and the Social tab gathers all emails from social media websites like Facebook, Google Plus, Instagram, Snapchat etc. There are many other tabs which are not activated by default.
