You must have Manage

To create a News stream
so that specific users will see content relevant to them:
Go to the News page and click .
Restriction: You'll only be able to
see this icon if you are a community manager or have Manage News Streams
Click Specific Users.
Give the new stream a title, for example "Management Ideas" or "My Team News." This is
the stream name users will see on the News page.
Tip: Make the stream title work
for every rule you are going to create for this stream. For example, you could create a heading called "Management Ideas" and then
create different rules that direct new content from Finance groups to the Finance
managers, blog posts from the Technical Managers group to Engineering managers, and so on.
You could then add a stream rule targeting content from Human Resources management groups
to all these management groups, because those management ideas can apply to any
Select Create Stream Rule.
Under Places/Blogs, enter or select the place or blog you want
the stream to pull content from.
Tip: If you see both a place and the place's blog listed, keep
in mind that selecting the blog would post less content in the stream. In other words, selecting a place means
content created there will show up in the stream. Selecting the blog means only blog
posts will show up.
Under Audience, enter the users and group of users who will
be able to view the stream. You can also enter profile field values.
Note: For more information on filtering based on a profile field, be sure to read

You also have the option to select Create profile filter so that you can filter
your audience based on a combination of profile
Under Email Options, select whether you want the stream's users to receive email notifications every time new
content is posted in the place or blog.
Tip: Generally speaking, we recommend setting this to Off.
However, you'll likely want to enable notifications on the most important content that your users cannot miss.
Just keep in mind that if notifications get noisy, users may stop reading the content.
Click Publish Layout.
You can create up to ten news streams, which will display on the News
page in the order listed. You can reorder the list by dragging a stream to a new position.
