Manage Mysite Promoted Sites in SharePoint 2013

As the name indicates, SharePoint 2013 promoted sites provides a way to list important sites to the user community. These promoted sites appear under "Sites" section of user's My site.

For promoted sites to work, we need user profile service application up and running(Obviously, we need SharePoint server at least, as UPA is not available in foundation version!)

Farm Administrators can manage these "Promoted Sites" via user profile service application. Here is how to manage promoted sites in SharePoint 2013: Say, we promote a training site.
  • Navigate to Central Administration >> Go to your User profile service application via service application link
  • Click on "Manage Promoted Sites" link under "My Sites Settings"sharepoint 2013 promoted sites
