How to Create a Cause-Based Newsfeed on Facebook
By Aless Piper
May 29, 2012
If you're anything like me, there are probably dozens, if not more, pages you've liked on Facebook. In my case, 550, and a good chunk of that number -- probably more than 200 -- is HIV/AIDS-related; many of them are ASO's from all over the world.
Unlike with groups, you can't get emails when pages are updated, so more often than not I am about a half-month to a month or more behind in news from any one page. Updates do appear in more or less real time on my newsfeed but I also have friends, both offline and on, so again, I don't always see them.
I have found a work-around, however. In the same way I've created lists to filter what complete strangers see of my profile, using a feature launched in March 2012, I've created lists that enable me to isolate my HIV/AIDS-related information to peruse at my leisure. And while I do still miss some things, it's getting better.
How did I do it? Easily, I promise.
And there you have it, your own cause-based newsfeed.
Here are some awesome pages to get you started:
If you make a public HIV/AIDS-based list, how about sharing a link in the comments?
