Newsfeeds in SharePoint 2013 provide a way to track people, documents, sites, and interests (tags). Newsfeeds are accessed and managed through your user profile.

The following walk-through will explore creating and managing newsfeeds.

These same steps are performed as part of the exercise with this lesson, so, unless you have a separate account you want to perform the walk-through steps on, you should wait to perform them in the exercise.

  1. Click the Newsfeed link in the top-right corner of the browser. Newsfeed link.

    There is also a Newsfeed link in the Quick Launch of your user profile page. The link on your profile's Quick Launch navigates to the same location at the link in the upper-right corner of the browser.

  2. If prompted to "Get the most out of SharePoint" click the OK button. Social prompt.
  3. Note the options, people, documents, sites, and tags listed under the heading I'm following. I'm following list.
  4. Remain on the Newsfeed page for SP_Admin for the next walk-through.
