Why should I post to the News Feed?

Share information about the latest work and family blogs, news articles, briefs, or case studies.  

  • Post a call for papers, your latest report, or your newsletter.  
  • Share a press release or announce the publication of your new book.
  • Let your colleagues know about a job opportunity.
  • Notify us of a new website that you want to share with the work and family community.
  • Were you on TV or the radio? Share the link to your interview or news story.
  • Put your latest blog up on the News Feed.

Do you have an article from a news magazine or the popular press that is of interest to the work and family community but not “scholarly” or suitable for the Work and Family Commons?  Consider posting it to the
News Feed.

Please note that your news item will be auto shared with our Facebook page and Twitter account. Join our LInkedin group, Like Us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter @wfrn.


How can I get the latest news?

There are several subscription and feed options available from the WFRN.

  1. Go the home page for the latest news. 
  2. WFRN members are automatically subscribed to a weekly email with News and Events plus a monthly email with new information (working papers, articles, reports, abstracts) from the Work and Family Commons (WFC), the WFRN open access subject matter repository.  If you'd prefer to not receive these emails, you can unsubscribe (at the bottom of the email) or contact us at: workandfamily@sas.upenn.edu.
  3. Anyone (not only members) can subscribe to a daily email of News and Events via MailChimp.  If you were previously subscribed to our daily Feedburner email, your subscription has been transferred.
  4. You can receive a subscription to our RSS feeds (Please note: RSS feeds are no longer supported by Google Chrome. You can still view RSS feeds in Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer.)
  • For the RSS of our News and Events Feed (delivered to your web-based reader such as Google Reader), go here.
  • For the RSS (delivered to your web-based reader such as Google Reader) with new information (working papers, articles, reports, abstracts) from the Work and Family Commons (WFC), the open access subject matter repository, go here.

Email versus RSS?

What's the difference between emails and the RSS?  The emails arrive in your inbox on a regularly scheduled basis-daily, weekly or monthly.  The RSS goes to a reader (such as Google reader) that you check when you want to read the news.  All the RSS feeds that you subscribe to from various sources are together in one location, and are marked as unread until you click on them.
