How to Follow Open Culture Posts: Daily Email & RSS Are Gold, Twitter Is an Option, Forget About Facebook

email facebookReaders often ask us, “What’s the best way to make sure that I don’t miss any of your posts?” The answer, right now, is pretty clear: Sign up for our daily email. Each day, you will receive an email that tidily wraps up everything we’ve featured on the site over a 24 hour period. Faithfully it will appear in your inbox each day. The other great option is our trusty RSS feed:

You can always follow us on Twitter (or Google Plus), where we highlight our daily posts, plus many other cultural curiosities found on the web. The only downside is that a river of material flows through Twitter, so you’ll have to keep a pretty close eye on things to spot our posts.

Finally there’s Facebook, but you can almost forget about that. Although nearly a quarter million people have liked our Facebook page, Facebook has historically shown our posts to a fraction of that audience (something they’re candid about). And because of a new algorithm change, the fraction is getting substantially smaller. The unfortunate bottom line is that you can’t rely on Facebook to give you what you want. But you can rely on our daily email and our feed. They’re 100% guaranteed. Now back to our regularly scheduled program.

Make knowledge free & open. Share our posts with friends on Facebook, Twitter and other social media platforms:

    You mean your RSS feed is less reliable and less complete than email?

    Of course, the RSS is perfectly good. I will add that to the post.

    I find that Open Culture integrates well with my Google Plus items but I also have an email subscription to take a second look and make sure that I don’t miss anything. Thanks for being. +openculture

    Edit: I wanted to share this post and was disappointed to find that Google+ was not one of the options.

    There is a share button at the top of the post, under the title. I can look into adding one to the bottom too.

    Best regards,

    Thanks Dan. I did find that and I used it. I misspoke, what I was referring to was Share just below the comment.

    RSS Feeds is the best option so far.
