Site Feature: Personalised news feeds and followed topics management page

By Harrison Todd,

Your own Personalised News Feed

Back in July we added a way for you to subscribe to topics from directly within news stories.

Now you're all following the topics, games, series, and developers you care about most, so we thought it would be cool to create a personalised news feed for you containing just those stories.

Accessing your news feed

We've added a new menu item to your My Links menu at the top of the page.

Clicking on this will take you through to your new personal news feed:

You will also now have the most recent story from your followed topics on your profile page, where you'll find another link to get to your personal feed:

If your feed is a little bare right now, head to the trophy list pages for games you care most about, click the three-dot menu next to the game name and select Subscribe to news.

Other topics we'd recommend following from the Category News Subscription panel on these pages are:

Managing your followed topics

If you go to the My Gaming News page in your My Links ->Gaming Menu, you'll see a new tab for Manage topics (this will be in a dropdown menu at the top of the page on small screens).

Clicking on this will show you a list of all the topics you are subscribed to at the top of the page, along with a whole host of general topics below that the community has requested for easy following.
Simply click on a followed topic to unfollow, and an unfollowed one to follow it.

You can also change how you receive the notifications for new stories that match your subscriptions from the top of the page.

We hope you enjoy this new feature!
