First, visit Meta on your computer. Though Meta feeds are always accessible on any device, feeds can only be edited on desktop. In the Navigation Menu, hover your cursor over the feed you want to edit. Click the ellipsis to the right of the feed name and select Edit from the drop-down menu. Alternatively, click Edit in the top-right corner of your screen. Next, a panel will appear, showing the terms you are following in the feed.
- To make your feed more specific, you can add a term to an existing group by clicking . A search box will appear where you can search for additional terms. Once you have found a term you want to add, click it. Within each group of terms, you have the option to use the Boolean operators AND or NOT. Note: The Boolean operator NOT works as a global operator, excluding the term from the entire group.
For example, if you have a feed following organoids and want to only follow brain organoids, start with the feed on organoids, click the Add Term text box, and type “brain.” Select “Brain” as a Concept. Click AND in the drop-down box next to the concept. Click Save Feed to save your changes.
If you wanted a feed for organoids but exclude brain organoids, you would select NOT from the drop-down box.
- To make your feed broader, you can add a group by clicking . A new search box will appear where you can search for additional terms. Once you have found a term you want to add, click it. Adding a group acts as the Boolean operator OR.
- To remove a term, click the mark next to the term you would like to remove.
- To save your changes, click Save Feed.
Tip: When you select a Feed in the Navigation Menu, Meta suggests related concepts, researchers, or journals to follow. Look for them to the right of the Feed panel. Click on a term and then click Follow to add it directly to the feed you are viewing.
