Using the Recommendations widget on the Home page

Use the Recommendations widget to find content from the different applications that might interest you. The widget displays in the side column of the activity stream views.

About this task

The Recommendations widget suggests content that might interest you based on your existing community membership, network connections, tags, and so on. The widget displays a randomized list of public and private content that has been recently added or updated in the different applications. The recommendations made are based on your relationship with existing public and private content in IBM® Connections. An icon next to each recommended item identifies which application the content is associated with. The widget displays 15 recommendations by default.

The Recommendations widget also provides information about the ways in which you are already connected to the content listed. For example, you can click the related tags link to see what tags you have in common with the suggested content. The tags that are displayed are tags that are associated with the recommended content and also associated with you in some way. You might have assigned the tags to content or to your profile for instance.

The Recommendations widget only recommends content, it does not recommend people. Use the Do You Know widget on the My Network page in Profiles when you want to get suggestions for people to add to your network.
