Q. What is in the News Feed section of the Commons?
A News Feed page on the Commons can be accessed by clicking News Feed in the main, left-hand menu. On this page you’ll see a list of different types of site activity, including works deposited in CORE, the creation of sites and blogs, and discussion topics added to groups. You can use filters to select specific types of content you want to see. One set of filters runs across the top of the page and allows you to see activity related to members you are following, groups you are in, or discussions and status updates you were mentioned in.
The second set of filters is a drop-down menu that allows you to look at activities by specific type: Updates, Posts, Comments, New Groups, Group Memberships, New Members, New Deposits, New Group Deposits, New Group Files, Group Files Edits, Topics, Replies, New Docs, Doc Edits, and Doc Comments.
