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.
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. You may need to work with your community
manager to define user groups.
