More than Facebook sources?

11 comments

I hope you are going to add other sources, beyond Facebook. May I suggest that you also implement the ability to add Telegram channels (chats and groups make no sense in my opinion, and Facebook groups too can be left out of the scope of Knil)

Knil is already covering for any topic of your chosing : Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterests, Specialized Websites, Youtube, Wikipedia...

Well, I need some instructions on how... I expected that I could link Knil to my accounts on other social networks, besides Facebook. Currently, if I click on my icon in the upper right corner of the home view, I can see my Facebook stream; I thought that I could link -say- my Twitter account, my Tumblr account, my Google+, Instagram etc etc etc accounts, and see my combined stream; also, see the combined interests from all my social media accounts in the Channel edit view.

This is exactly what we are working on... and we will deliver it soon. Precision : In the user tab you will be able to see YOUR posts combined from all the platforms, not your feeds from all the platforms. This is ok right ?

A clarification on Telegram: telegram is an instant messaging platform, similar to WhatsApp. It has a feature you don't find in WhatsApp: channels. Unlike groups, channels are a one-way, one-to-many communication stream: I create a channel, publish something, than all the people who subscribed to the channel receive the posts (without the possibility to reply). Unlike WhatsApp, the Telegram protocol is open source, so you can write a Telegram client very easily. See this link: https://tchannels.me/

Please precise when you say adding both interests and people :

 

- Creating a channel with Interests and people (private people you know ?)

- Creating a feed with people you know (mutli to one)

- Creating a channel with Interests and having followers (people) getting this feed (one to multi ?)

 

Thanks

Let's remain in the facebook realm, to start. When I create a Knil channel, currently I can choose from the liked Facebook Pages and add them as Interests to the Channel. I would like to be able to also have Facebook People from my friends, shown as Interests, that can be added to the channel. Suppose that I have liked the Pages:

 

Classical Music Memes

The New York Times

Pink Floyd

 

and my friends are:

 

Mary Smith

John Doe

Martin Harris

Mario Rossi

 

Then, the list of Interest that I could pick from when adding to a channel would be (alphabetically sorted):

 

Classical Music Memes

John Doe

Mario Rossi

Martin Harris

Mary Smith

Pink Floyd

The New York Times

Unless you invited your friends and they downloaded the app, we can not get your friends list from Facebook anymore. But what we can do is letting you invite someone as interest in a channel. In this case we don't know his name and pic and will have to wait for him to join to show you his posts... all these are Facebook restrictions.

Shame... :/ Inviting friends sounds an interesting option anyway, it would also help extend the user base of Knil :) Having an invitation to use something like Knil is always better than being invited to some coloured pegs game! ;)

We are rolling out Invite friends on August 10th... so you can invite friends to follow your channel or follow you or follow them... and then add them to any channel you want.

In the business world you have to be flamboyant so that it becomes easy for you to connect to the potential customers and the sales get a boost up. If you are in business and looking for the instant techniques to get results then I would highly recommend going with Twitter and facebook ads Los Angeles services.

    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 :) :) :) )
