Documents. When unselected, updates on new and updated documents in locations you follow are not shown.
Lists. When unselected, updates on new and updated list items in lists you follow are not shown.
<Favorite location 1>. When unselected, updates for documents in this location are not shown.
<Favorite location 2>
Note: You can use the documents filter to follow more SharePoint locations. Open the filter and select Follow other favorites to launch the Favorites dialog. Select a location you want to edit, click Edit > Follow library / folder / list updates.
