Feeds

Feeds are a stream of updates/posts that appear on your profile page. They help you stay informed on what’s happening with your friends, your teams, your matches and your tournaments within Playinga.

Feed Posts are of two types

  • User Created:- These are updates/posts created by any Player.
    e.g Any image posted & shared by a player from the Match page.
  • System Created:- These are automated posts created and shared by PLAYINGA with the stakeholders involved, as and when an event of relevance to the player happens within PLAYINGA.
    e.g When a match score is published PLAYINGA automatically creates a post on the Match result and shares it with all Players in that match.

Feeds you create will appear on your timeline as well be shared with other players you are friends with. As a player or organizer you can create feeds to inform friends or stakeholders through text or media clips.
