How to use personal feeds
Personal feeds allow you to implement a semi-automated posting method. By adding only hand-picked items to your personal feeds, you make ensure that only quality items will be posted to your social accounts or blogs.
But you can also use the advanced filter option in Feeds Reader, to automize the process of content filtering ( see user guide).
You can create separate personal feeds for items from a specific content source, or on a specific topic, or dedicated to a specific posting campaign.
Content will stay in your personal feeds even after content feeds that originally had that content were deleted from your Feeds Box or Feeds Reader.
