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.
