What Do These Tabs Contain? 

Each of the different tabs compile in itself, a specific genre of emails that correspond to the name of the tab. For instance the Social tab will contain emails coming from social networks, online data services, media sharing websites and gaming platforms.

The Primary tab will have emails and messages coming from friends, family and other messages that don't originate from a social or any other website.

The Promotions tab on the other hand will contain all those spam offers and promotional deals and emails that you are normally sick of seeing on your routine inbox.
