Messages and Friend notification

The little orange/ red dot in the corner is not very helpful

I check all my messages, but as far as friend requests go I don’t usually look through those in ages. With the somewhat recent update, any time I get a friend request I have to go there and ignore all every time, cause then I free up the opportunity to see when I get a new notification. (that might pertain to messages, the only thing I care about)

I’d be nice to disable the red dot notification on the menu button for friend requests. Or alternatively, have a more subtle color dot for friend requests, and use red if there are more than 0 new messages.
