How to use personal feeds
Personal feeds allow you to implement a semi-automated posting method. By adding only hand-picked items to your feeds you can ensure that only these items will be posted to your social accounts or blogs.
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.
