We launched our Mendeley Newsfeed a year ago, but it hasn’t remained stagnant: we’re constantly working with researchers to create a more useful newsfeed.
Here are our top four tips on how to tailor newsfeed content:
- URLs in a post can be expanded out to show the contents of the URL. This means followers will see a preview and image of the link contents.
- Tag one of your followers in a post if you want a specific person to respond to a question or comment – they will be notified in the navigation bar and their name is clickable in the post.
- Add a reference to a post, so you can refer to a specific article or share an article, and your followers can see the metadata and save to library without you needing to copy and paste it.
- Add images to the post if you need to ask a question about a specific picture or share an image with your followers
We’re still making improvements, based on your feedback and needs, so watch this space!
