The News page is where you see your contacts recent uploads. See the link below posted on the blog May 17th.

"5) More exhaustive news pages.
Some of you have complained that you couldn't see in your news pages certain photos added by your contacts. We removed some photo flux, those that were uploaded to an album knowing that if the album was new it would appear instead of the photos. This posed a problem for photos uploaded in an existing album: they never appeared in the news flux.

Now all photos uploaded by your contacts (added to an album or not) will show in the photos flux (in the limit of 1 to 5 by person depending on your choice).

We are currently working on a complete overhaul of the news pages to make them more exhaustive and easier to use. We will put online in a few weeks a news page test to get your feedback and suggestions."
