Personalization FAQ


What is the personalization experience?
The personalization experience allows you, once logged in to ConstructionCanada.net, to influence the articles that appear on the website's homepage by following topics (tags) or liking articles that you're interested in.

This will be used to prioritize the content that is presented to you on the homepage. You will also receive an alert in your My Account menu (located in the top right corner) each time new content with the tag(s) you've followed is posted.

Additionally, you will have a dedicated page to view articles with the tags you've followed as well as a page dedicated to articles and products that you liked.
