Google has recently pushed out a new tabbed interface to Gmail users, with the intent of wanting to make it easier to organize inboxes. The notable changes in the new Gmail interface includes addition of two new Social and Promotion tabs. The Social tab filters and stores all your emails coming from various social networks whereas the Promotion tab filters and stores all promotional and advertisements related emails from various sources.
