Is it possible to tie into the buddypress notification system so that Users are notified when new media has been uploaded to an album?

If your asking for an email notification when a “friend” uploads new media, I’d strongly support that feature too! That’d be a nice addition.

Hi Jason and Ben,
I will discuss this feature request with my team and let you know.

Very nice idea, but global notification for members isn’t good.I’ll go with Ben suggestion either by follow or friend. I believe the friend part is dying and I only use follow plugin for buddypress. As I disabled friend as follow works much better. So yes, go for it.
