Some short, but important news don't fit into "regular news" that are shown in the cover stories on the dashboard and they don't fit into the microblog neither.
Those news are only oneliners and have no content. When used in the compact view of the corporate news feed they are still clickable - despite having no content at all, only existing as a single page title.
They can't be placed into the microblog instead, because there they would disappear too quickly.
A simple solution would be to provide a "no link" option for the compact view, so only the headlines are shown, but can't be clicked so the users won't land on an empty page.
(That could still happen from other places, like the news portal, but is less likely to happen.)
