Activity Feed Push Notifications - Read/Unread

How might I go about adding read/unread functionality to the activity feed created in the "Advanced Social Features in Ruby on Rails" course? I am glad that setting up the feed was so easy, but having that number just hovering there even if you've clicked on the feed and read through your notifications is a bit bothersome.

I know it's been awhile since you asked this question but did you ever find an answer? I just recently went through the course and added an activity feed and was also looking for a way to have the notifications only for new activity. Any help would be great.
