For those of you that already have a pressroom on MyNewsdesk, a more informative and social newsroom is just 5 minutes away.
Creating a Social Media Newsroom on MyNewsdesk is simple. Communicators can upload all information and relevant feeds in less than 5 minutes. (Those of you that don’t have a pressroom yet would only need 10 minutes!)
Just follow these steps:
- Log in (or create an account if you don’t have one on MyNewsdesk)
- Click “Settings”
- Choose which feeds you want to display on your newsroom. These can be from relevant blogs or websites you own or subscribe to.
- Add feeds from your Social Media accounts, such as Twitter, Flickr, or YouTube. Just submit your usernames and a headline. The feeds will be displayed in the right column of the newsroom. See image below.

Social Media Upload
When you publish a newsflash, image, video, or contact person, you can choose to upload it simultaneously to your chosen social networks.
Ensure that your press images are also published on Flickr, that your latest news releases are tweeted, that your videos are uploaded to YouTube and that your presentations are available through SlideShare. Sharing your press material through different social networks such as these will help you reach a wider audience.
The settings for the Social Media Upload are located under Channels on your Dashboard.
