International News Feed
San Diego, Calif., December 5, 2012 AllAboutVision.com has launched an international version of its popular Eye Health News Feed, which eye care practitioners can use to automatically update Facebook pages with reliable, interesting and educational content at no cost to them.
AllAboutVision.com's original Eye Health News Feed debuted in January 2011 and is now used by more than 500 practices. AllAboutVision.com offers free installation to a practice's Facebook page, or the practice may self-install using a free app.
In response to feedback from practices outside the United States, an international version of the Eye Health News Feed is now available. By omitting references to holidays or seasonality, the international version provides education that integrates seamlessly into any practice's Facebook page or website, regardless of geographical location.
"Timely topics such as allergies and holiday eye safety are important ones in the United States, but a post on July fourth fireworks is out of place on an Australian practice's Facebook page," said Liz Segre, AllAboutVision.com editorial director. "By creating another feed, we've retained important information for our domestic readers, while avoiding content that would be inappropriate for practices outside the United States."
AllAboutVision.com's feeds are in RSS format, which allows web developers to adapt the feeds to practice websites in addition to use on Facebook pages.
The Eye Health News Feed is one of several practice-building tools offered free to eye care practices by AllAboutVision.com. More information is available at www.allaboutvision.com/ecp/.
Launched in 2000, AllAboutVision.com is a one-stop, independent resource providing consumers with hundreds of pages of trustworthy, up-to-date information on vision correction and eye health. The site is expected to serve 16 million visitors this year.
