Some major changes have been made to The Drum website, including opening up the option to allow readers to tailor the site to their own preferences and simplifcations to the comments section.

The MyDrum feature, added last year during the overhaul of the website, was previously a subscription only feature, allowing users to create their own personalised homepage by sector and location.

Users now need only register their details and then choose the relevant fields within the MyDrum section to choose what types of news and features that they wish to see on their homepage in future, thus filtering out news stream content that is irrelevant to them.

The comments section has also been simplified, allowing readers to comment easily by adding their email or signing in before placing a comment. Comments can be left under the user’s actual name or through the use of a pseudonym.

Newsletters have also been extended, allowing readers to sign up for The Drum Daily newsletter, as well as weekly sector newsletters across Advertising, Social Media, Design, Digital and Media.

A webpage has been created to explain how the MyDrum feature works, and how to operate it.
