I’d love to have the ability to pick and choose what is shown to people following you on your newsfeed. I feel like I can’t properly and fully engage without restraint with other stories (votes, comments, adding to reading lists) or even respond to comments on my own stories. It would spam (probably annoy too) the people following me AND could potentially drown out important announcements/updates not only the ones that you post but that other people post. I know for announcements/updates there is a notification in a separate tab, but I don’t know about others, but seeing the updates on the newsfeed sometimes reminds me to actually check it out.
I’m thinking of creating a second account to go wild on comments and votes etc.
Maybe I’m thinking too much about it and people don’t actually care about the spam, but wasn’t the reason for removing the activity feed from our profiles so that we felt a sense of privacy? Or was it just a design update? Maybe there’s an option already to hide certain activity but I couldn’t find it. Then again, I’m kind of useless with technology.
So . . . Am I alone in this feeling? Probably lol
