This is a simple little tip, no biggie. I like to use Ning's built-in Feature: Social Feeds, for several reasons:

  • If I'm away from the computer for a day, I like to add an interesting Twitter Feed to my Activity Feed.
  • Or, if it's a special day like Veterans Day, I utilize this feature to add a Twitter feed all about "Veterans Day" - - hopefully. I did see where one jerk commented with the f word, why wasn't he off today (disgusting).

While I'm on the topic of Veterans Day, Happy Veterans Day! A heartfelt thank you to all our heroes who fought for our freedom, & those who continue to serve. Thanks, Daddy -WWII.

Thank you.

 

How to Set Your Activity Feed:

 

  • My Network/Settings/Ning Labs/Social Feeds
  • Check the box next to "Enable feature"
  • Click on Settings
  • Check the box next to: Enable Social Feeds for my Activity feature
  • To use today as our example, next to Twitter Search enter: Veterans Day
  • SAVE
