Number of news feeds.

Local Conversations in Ipswich Town Centre

I elected to get my daily news feed from in and around Ipswich, yet. There were only 4 feeds today. Does anyone know how someone decides what we get and why I only got 4 conversations before, when even the one in which I am participating, wasn't there?
7 earlier replies
Is it done through the council? Looking at what is at the bottom of the page I see that one can contact Streetlife about all sorts of things..... Think I'll do that now and ask what is happening to our news feeds. Watch this space.
Doing this on my phone...not easy. I can only say that perhaps we should all read the stuff on the contacts page and see if we can fix things. I can't see how I can fix mine till we get back to the UK and I can use the proper computer. Sorry.
