Following up on our recent release of Twitter Search in Social Feeds, I'm excited to let everyone know that we have added the ability to add RSS feeds to your network's Activity Feed. You might be asking, "How can this help me?" Well, if you have a Wordpress, Blogger, Tumblr, etc., blog for your network, you can now grab that RSS feed and plug it in to your Social Feeds page to have those posts appear in the Activity Feed.
Don't have an external blog? Grab the RSS feed from just about any blog or website that has information you think your members will like. You can add up to three RSS feeds, so don't be stingy with them. Experiment to see what works best for you and your members. This is still a beta feature, so you'll want to head to the Ning Labs section of your Dashboard to enable it. Let us know how you plan on using it or how we might tweak it to make it better.
Want to learn to more RSS feeds? We've got a great intro article right here.
Yay! :D way to go!
Yes! Thanks Alex! I've already decided how I intend to use this function.
Did we fixed the twitter feed bug yet? Only one keyword or words work at a time. Example, Yohan-Blake will work, but Yohan-Blake, Asafa-Powell will not work.
Yes they did. As a matter of fact I noticed it has worked better than it did before. Both keywords worked for me but it just didnt work consistently. Much success Anthony.
I'd like to see what this looks like when activated (without doing it on my own network). If someone gets it set up can you provide a link to your main page so I can see it?
Hey Diane, I'd suggest giving it a shot on your network. It's super easy to turn on and off so if you don't like it it's gone immediately.
I think you can also try it on your test network.
i'm using it and love it already! :)
Sweet. I can see many uses.
