Marking messages as unread after reading them

Go to your inbox, click on a message, click on "Actions" and then "Mark as unread"

Marking friend notifications as unread

There is no direct way to do this but until you have responded to a friend request (either accepted or declined), a count will be shown (like in the image below):

Marking notifications as unread

Again, I don't see a direct way of doing this. One work around would be to go to Settings > Notification Settings and turn on email notifications. You can mark the email as unread until you wish to do so!

Hope this helps!
