a invitation to another user,
or when a user sent a journal object to a friend, but need be improved,
in particular the flashing icon in the corner, is not very visible, and
then the user need open the frame to get the message.
Also, there are a difficult balance, between a system where you don't want
distract to the user,
and showing important information.
