@MTF - self-publishing

Wouldn't it be useful if you could add badges to members for skills and expertise? Like the ones listed above.
We used to do this, people neglected it. (They wouldn't provide info)

I feel like I am missing something.

How do you find this "your news feed"?

I basically come in daily and view the top of the most recent 100 threads and that is pretty much all I have ever done.

Where is this personal news feed? Is it strictly based on content from those you follow only?

Thanks

.
Hover over, your username, on the top menu bar. To the left of your Inbox. When it drops down. On the right. "Your News Feed" appears. Yeah, it shows, like posts/replied by the folks you follow.

In addition to this great advice, I would highly recommend beginners go and read through the gold/notable thread(s) started by those they plan on following. That list wouldn’t be complete without @IceCreamKid (direct marketing/options/what can’t he do?) and is @RHL (general business advice) still active? Talk about some incredible experience from those two.

Top right there’s the symbol of a person (on my phone anyway). It’s what you click to see your alerts and conversations. Above those options it says News Feed.

In the News Feed it lists new content and likes by people you follow. Whenever MJ posts something I can go check it out. Whenever he likes something I can also go check it out.

@AllenCrawley also does email marketing.

What about all the other marketing channels?

Who springs to mind when we think of each of Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Amazon PPC, Udemy, etc?

To make looking through Gold threads easier I started a thread categorizing the Gold threads here: The Gold Thread Directory

Honored to make the list.
Also, very helpful. I always intend to follow people, and then never click the button for some reason. I'll need to start fixing that.

And now I have a goal for 2020. To be included on this list and hopefully not on the "who to ignore" list!

Quick (noob) question. How do you follow people that have limited their profiles? Does that mean only insiders can follow them?

oh god... now my notifications are a hundred messages that say "you have gained a follower" ... "you have lost a follower" ... "you have gained a follower... oh nope, you lost them..." "hey here's a follow- nevermind.. they unfollowed you."

Interesting. Sounds like I might have less following, but none unfollowing. I’ve no idea what to make of that.
