3 Tips for Managing Your Following List on BlogTalkRadio

We’ve been getting many questions and comments on recent BlogTalkRadio updates pertaining to followers so we wanted to explain why we made the changes and give you some options that will address your concerns.

Over the last few months we’ve been taking steps to transition from a friends to a followers model to make it easier for hosts to communicate with their listeners, and for both listeners and hosts to stay up to date on what’s new on BlogTalkRadio. Many of you voiced concern with the first step of this process, made a few weeks back. You were concerned about losing the friends that you worked so hard to connect with and build. So with the 2nd and final phase of this transition, instead of deleting your friends we transitioned them to followers, making anyone who was your friend a follower of your profile, and you a follower of theirs.

With this most recent update though, we again received feedback that some of you were not happy with the increase in messages you were receiving from shows you are now following so we’d like to offer you these 3 tips for managing your following list:

1. “Reset Accounts I Follow” Link
You can reset your account to the shows you originally selected to follow by clicking a “Reset Accounts I Follow” link that will appear for the next 2 weeks at the top of your My Account page. *Please note though that that this action can’t be reversed and will remove all of your “followers” that were formerly your “friends” on BlogTalkRadio.

2. Curate Your Following List
You can manually manage who you are following from the Shows I Follow page in your account.

3. Edit Your Email Notifications
You can make changes to your email notifications in the Notifications section of your Settings page so you don’t receive notifications to your external email.

We hope you find these options valuable. Again thanks for your feedback. As always, if you have questions or need additional assistance, contact us. We’re happy to help.
