What’s that? A follow button, you say? Why yes, thanks to our wonderful product team, this follow button is now a default feature in all Mynewsdesk hosted newsrooms. Like how you follow and subscribe to your favourite online personalities on Twitter and Facebook respectively, you can now follow companies on Mynewsdesk and receive their news updates as they come. Hurrah!
The follow button appears on the right-side column of the newsroom, directly below the company description. The digit bubble reflects the number of followers of that newsroom at any point of time.
Take note that the number count increases automatically only if the user who clicks on it is already signed in to Mynewsdesk. If this is not the case, a new window will open and it will consist of a short description of Mynewsdesk and several sign-in options, as shown below:
If your company is using Mynewsdesk but not the hosted newsroom at the moment, fret not. Simply go to ‘Settings’ at the back end of Mynewsdesk and scroll all the way to the bottom until you hit the “Follow button” column and proceed with the instructions, as shown below:
Customization of your “Follow” button is also available:
