Adding interests to a channel

8 comments

Hi all, I am trying out the app and I findn it's a great idea. I find some limitations in editing my channels, these apply both to the Android app and the web version:

 

- When editing a channel it's very limiting being able to see only a small fraction of the items I could add to it. I have several hundreds of pages liked, and the selection page only shows the first (how many? 50? 75?). In my case, I can see up to the letter B. I would really want to see them all: I know I can type in the search box, but I have to remember them all. Maybe a hyerachical view (initial letter -> expand/collapse) would then simplify the high amount of scrolling needed.

- When editing a channel, I would like to be able to also add People, besides pages; also mixing pages and people in a channel.

 

Ciao

Fabrizio

1- Thanks Fabrizio for bringing that up, we will add an infinite scroll for you to see all your Facebook Liked Pages.

 

2- You already can add anything you want in a channel beside Facebook pages.

 

3- By people you mean private people you know ?

Hi Benoit!

 

1) Great, I think it really would help in creating channels. There are pages I don't remember anymore having liked, so it's really helpful to see a full list

 

2) Well... I'm afraid I need instructions on how :) I expected to see some settings where I could enter my credentials for other social networks besides Facebook, so that my other accounts are also linked to my Knil profile...

 

3) Yes, I mean "private people", "friends" in Facebook lingo; they could be listed together with Pages, in the channel edit view

I agree with fabrizio. I am running into the same issues. I work with and follow hundreds of museums and need to access and sort through all of them. When I type in an organization while it may pull in an an identifying icon for it, it does not add the organization's posts to the feed.

Hey, what is the issue :

 

1- You want a filter in a interests when you create a channel ?

2- You added an interest to a channel and it didn't pull posts for it ?

This is the new design we are working for interests adding, please feedback on this.

Hi Benoit, to answer your question somewhat belatedly:

1- You want a filter in a interests when you create a channel

It looks like you already solved it. I was hoping to see all the Facebook pages I liked rather than just a small sampling. However, your second question was also an issue. 2- You added an interest to a channel and it didn't pull posts for it ?

When I manually added an "Interest" it did not pull the posts for it. However, it appears to do it after a bit. It must take some time to process.

Thanks!!

    I like the fact if I click on a post it expands it and when I go back it returns me back to the spot I clicked from rather than starting me from the beginning of the feed -- as happens in Facebook. Unable to select text. I wish I could highlight and copy the text. I have to open it in Facebook to copy the text. (using Chrome on a PC). It would be nice to be able to get the URL of the post without having to go back into Facebook.

    It appears to be pulling the Twitter feed of another "Joe Caldwell" into my user feed. Is there a way I can remove that Twitter account?

    Logging into this forum is harder than signing up! :D At the top right corner of the page there is a "Log in / Sign up" button, by pressing it you are taken to the Sign up process. If you are already a member, then you have to click further on the "Log in", on the bottom of the page (after realizing you are entering your already existing access credentials in the Sign Up form :) :) :) )
