Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I don't think most people realize that the top left logo drops down and the second tab lets them select the site they want.

When I click from Stack Overflow to Meta Stack Overflow, it toggles links on the top right between main and Stack Overflow. I vote that we add a link in the top right of Stack Overflow's chat profile, to do the same type of navigation.

I agree with you. I would recommend that they do it in the white on orange text box, like the downvote message for those under 2k rep (if you don't know what I'm talking about, go downvote something and see the orange box. Then, unless it deserves it, go un-downvote it. If you have over 2k rep, a) you should already know what I'm talking about and b) you won't see it.)

I would recommend that they use something like that, but have it say

"Click the StackExchange button for a menu of useful links"

followed by 4 message boxes, one describing each tab.

Examples: "The Hot Questions tab displays the most active questions"

"The All Sites tab contains links to all of the StackExchange websites"

"The Inbox tab shows you what you have recieved comments/answers on"

"The Notifications tab shows you edits, badges and privileges earned.

Those would be useful to new users, to be shown whenever they create accounts, and possibly in a future tutorial for new users.
