Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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

It gets confusing to look at the inbox/notifications and not knowing when a message was sent. Any particular reason why this is so?

You can see the data time if you hover over the inbox. Displaying additional information will only clutter the display.
So, I believe there is no room for this request.

@vonbrand well, no harm in asking. – Shai Feb 26 '13 at 10:17

Try hovering over the link!

That or clicking it.

So you went for the guy who answered after me? – Dunhamzzz Feb 26 '13 at 10:33
Yeah well, the OP needs to hover over the time to show the seconds... Oh... wait ;) – Jon Clements Feb 26 '13 at 10:53

Another way to see the time when the messages were sent is going to the full inbox, which is part of the network profile. You have tab called "inbox" in your network profile and there is a shortcut by scrolling to the bottom of the Multicollider's inbox and clicking "more inbox messages …".
