1. On your network you have a ‘News’ tab, to which you can add your own custom news feeds. Lots of websites offer an RSS feed, which is basically some form of content transmitted by a site, which you can then add to your network. Check out this link here for a more thorough explanation of what RSS is.
2. The address for an RSS feed will look like this: http://newsrss.bbc.co.uk/rss/newsonline_uk_edition/front_page/rss.xml. You’ll notice this icon on any website that has content (whether that be text, audio or video) to which you can subscribe and read, watch and listen.
3. To add an RSS feed to your network, go to the ‘RSS News Feed’ section of your admin centre, which can be accessed via the ‘Launch Admin’ button in your sidebar, or by going to https://my.socialgo.com or https://my.network-maker.com
4. Once inside the ‘RSS News Feeds’ section, there are two ways to upate your RSS feed:
a) You can add a new news feed by clicking 'Add A News Feed'.
You can then enter the name of your newsfeed into the 'Name' text field and also keyword to do with your feed topic into the 'keyword' field.
b) The second way of adding a news feed is to use the Google News Search feature. This method enables you to create your own feed by entering a keyword or phrase, which Google then uses to search ALL their news stories, and provides you with stories that contain your keyword.
You can test what stories your keyword will result in by typing your keyword in to http://news.google.co.uk/
To use this method, simply choose Google from the drop down box type your keyword's and title, and hit ‘Add News Feed’ to submit.
5. You can disable a feed, so that it is not displayed on your network, but it’s details remain in your ‘Existing Feeds’ list. This is useful for when you temporarily want to suspend a news feed, but do not wish to delete it fully. Simply tick the box next to ‘Disable’ and press ‘Update Feeds’
6. You can delete a feed, so that it is not displayed on your network, and does not appear in your ‘Existing Feeds’ list. Simply press the red ‘Delete’ cross button in the box of the feed you want to delete.
7. To organize the order in which your feeds are presented on your page, you can use the 'drag and drop' option by simply clicking on the white box containing the number in your feed box. Your feed boxes can be dragged above or below one another as shown below.
8. To update your RSS feed details, simply press the 'save changes' button at the bottom of the page.
