Over the next few days, there will be significant changes to the content of the News Feed. Its name and online location will not be changed, so update subscribers will see a large number of apparently new entries which they will have seen before. This sort of glitch often occurs accidentally, but on this occasion we can apologise for any inconvenience in advance.
The significant change in content will be in coverage of our own activity, where everything of relevance will appear on the News Feed as a permanent, rather than passing, record. The “Blog”, with its archive feature, will continue separately.
All items on the News Feed will now be “tagged” with codes to indicate the topic being covered. A new News Feed enquiry function will be provided to enable coverage of a particular topic to be selected. This feature already exists for the Blog.
Options to subscribe to only updates of particular types and on particular topics will also be provided.
Please bear with us as we implement these enhancements and please feel free to offer any comments and suggestions. Comments can be added to this Blog entry or made through our Contact Form.
We are keen for supporters to offer suggestions of items to be included in the news feed. This can be done now, by emailing email@example.com. We are also considering providing a mechanism for this to be done more directly, by having an accessible “social media” account that can be posted to by using the “share” feature commonly seen on internet news items. Please let us know how you feel this could best be done. (Obviously, where ‘share by email’ is offered, this is already available.)
