Tips for creating News streams

Before you create a News stream, consider the following questions.

Does absolutely everyone need this information?
News streams created for everyone display information on the News page for all registered community users. If you work in a large organization, this could include all people across a wide variety of job roles, divisions, and locations. If you're confident the information is relevant to all of these users, follow the instructions in Creating News streams for everyone.
How much traffic is generated by the place or blog I want to share content from?
The place you select for a News stream should not be too noisy for the intended audience. For example, if your Sales group sometimes contains social chatter, consider creating a more controlled group or blog that contains only key communications, and use that one for the News stream.
Who needs this News stream?
You can define audiences by selecting individual people, by filtering on profile fields, or by selecting a user permissions group that is defined in Jive. The last two choices may require some preparation on your part: to make sure you're using profile fields consistently or to create any permissions groups you need for targeting an audience. Note that the system-defined groups in Jive (under Admin console: People > Management > User Group Summary) cannot be used to target audiences. You can use any custom-defined groups shown on the page. These groups may be created manually or synced from an SSO provider.
