How To Post the Weekly News

Objective:

To offer to each member of the Guild a tailored version of the current news and events, which starts with their most local information.

Time Needed:

About 10 minutes once you have got used to it. Maybe 30 the first time? Usually this is posted around 5pm on a Friday but can be any time from noon Wednesday to noon Thursday.

Before You Can Share News:

You need to be a member of the target network, and logged in to it.

Method:

  1. Facebook Groups:
  2. Yahoo Email Groups: Open the link to the group in a new tab (this will open a box for a new topic), open the link to the newsfeed, copy and paste the contents of the news feed, and drop it into the “new topic” box. Add an appropriate subject eg “Weekly News Friday 15th March”. To create pictures for links, mouse to the end of the link and press the RETURN key. A picture should appear within 5 seconds. Repeat as necessary. This is a pain and takes practice to get the knack. The pictures aren’t essential but all research indicates that they do encourage engagement. 
  3. Well behaved email groups (eg Google Goups):  Open the link to the group in a new tab (this will open a box for a new topic), open the link to the newsfeed, copy and paste the contents of the news feed which includes the pictures, and drop it into the “new topic” box. Add an appropriate subject eg “Weekly News Friday 15th March”.
