How do I track the most popular content?
Check the Trending tab on the top of your newsfeed to see the most popular wires for the day. You can also setup customised alerts and subscribe to the "Trending on Livewire" daily email.
How do I customise my content?
First decide on which contributors, companies and keywords you want to follow and add them to your ‘alerts’ but simply pressing the ‘alert’ button on one of their wires. Alternatively go to the ‘manage alerts’ page to setup on-site and email alerts to ensure you never miss the most important updates.
If you are unsure of which contributors to follow, a good way to start is by using the "Latest" and "Trending" tabs on top of the newsfeed. At any point in time, use the "Hide" function to filter content that isn't relevant to you and before long you will have a perfectly curated newsfeed.
