Photos trending across
the platform right now...
Or have I missed something?
I would love to be able to filter my feed, and/ or the explore feature to only show uploads from the people I am following
It would also be helpful if we could filter separately for the work they have liked or shared.
Currently my feed is populated with members all sharing the same pictures and it is time consuming and not that easy find the new uploads from members I follow. I don't have a lot of time to spend looking at everything in my feed and I am actually missing seeing their new uploads and thus the opportunity to like or comment on them.
I was wondering if I had missed a setting somewhere.
When you can manage it, it will certainly help.
I wonder if it is because the upload posts get lost in all the visual clutter of the feed.
If we were able to filter separately for uploads, likes, and comments I don't think we would need to share our own, but on the other hand it wouldn't matter if we did share since the viewer would be able to filter.
I have no idea if I'm making any sense!
Thinking further, if we could filter for uploads, comments and likes separately then yes, I think we should still be able to share our own photos.
A possibly helpful filter setting for Anita's proposal above would be not to show shares in your feed if you've already seen (or liked) the photo being shared. Like Anita, I'm keen that new uploads from people I follow should be more prominent in my feed than shares.
I've also noticed that, even at a quiet time, if you upload a photo, then look at your feed, it doesn't always show right at the top of the feed but is instead further down. I think this may be one of the reasons it's harder to find new uploads, because if someone refreshes their feed, new uploads are often further down than shares that actually happened before they were uploaded.
