Facebook Updates News Feed (Again)

NCE Social Media

Facebook has updated its News Feed algorithm again. It means that they want more people to know what is going on around them…and by pushing more stories with the most comments, the most shares, and the most likes to the top of your feed, they believe you will want to see that story. Personally, I don’t like the News Feed default and prefer the All Friends feed. Which feed do you prefer? What does this mean for you?

Attention Nonprofits! The New LinkedIn News Feed Design Has Arrived

Nonprofit Tech for Good

At long last, the new LinkedIn News Feed is here! For years I have been completely baffled by LinkedIn’s partnership with Twitter to allow a mass automation of tweets to be published the LinkedIn News Feed. All those robotic tweets rife with too many hashtags and bad punctuation essentially rendered the LinkedIn News Feed useless, gave it the appearance of a cluttered mess, and was the antithesis of social (as in social media).

Feed My Inbox — RSS feeds by email

Getting RSS Feeds Via Email

Robert Weiner

There are a few RSS feeds I don't want to miss. I have an RSS feed reader but I often go for days without looking at it. Some RSS feeds offer email subscriptions, but most don't. However, I found a way to do this even for feeds that don't offer email delivery by playing with these instructions for setting up a Google FeedBurner subscription for one's own web site: [link]. Once that's set up, click the My Feeds link in the upper-right corner.

Allegiance Group

Have you ever seen an otherwise good homepage ruined by the presence of too many social media feeds? But giving each of these feeds its own space on the homepage takes up too much real estate – and takes the user’s focus away from what’s important: the actual site content.

The most recent update this past June seemed like the biggest blow to nonprofits, as it was announced they would prioritize News Feeds to show posts from friends and family and less from pages.
