Their timeline processing seems to have gone extra shit recently. I know they decided to stop presenting a timeline of photos a while back and bump things based on popularity or something but now it seems like photos a week old are just being pushed into my feed, which is just confusing and annoying.
uninstalled the guardian app because I was getting push notifications about stuff like interest falling by 0.2% in the last financial year and boring shit like that. The only time I need a notification is when things like last night’s bombing happens.
I’m also getting notifications/follow requests on the app & when I go to have a look it’s just a list of follow suggestions
Oddly the notifications/follow requests show up as they should on the desktop version
But aside from insta the whole non-chronological UX fad made/makes big realtime news events nonsensical on twitter. Last night/this morning was a jumble of two day old memes, prayers, sketchy smartphone videos, Trump in Saudi jokes & rampant Islamaphobia
There seems to be a general problem with social media at the moment with over-notifying. Facebook’s started telling me how many people have interacted with my posts in the last week, like that matters in any way, and Twitter basically now tells me whenever anyone posts anything. Total pair of aching balls.
