wikiloops news feed introduction & purpose
The newsfeed (or "news"-tab) is a part of the wikiloops user profile which is only visible to the profile owner.
That being said, it should be self-explanatory that a members account and prior log in are required to get to see your newsfeed.
The purpose of the newsfeed is to offer you an overview about things that are of interest to you as they happen, and to keep you up-to-date with what your collaborators of choice have been up to.
The activity level on your newsfeed depends on you:
The more you interact with other users on wikiloops, the more activity will happen on your newsfeed,
and by following musicians you like your newsfeed can be turned into a way of getting right to the good stuff without needing to browse around.
Available newsfeed notifications and how to enable them
Some newsfeed items will only appear under certain conditions (for example, you need to have contributed a track to receive notifications on comments on your track), while others can be triggered by other users activity.
