Bluesky, Twitter’s decentralized social media project, recently unveiled a feature allowing users to build personalized feeds. “Bluesky Feeds” gives them control of what content appears in their feed and in what order.
Feeds are created using custom algorithms designed to surface content that is most relevant for each user based on various factors including interests, accounts followed and previously interacted-with content.
Users not only can choose which content they wish to view, but can also customize its order in their feed. They can opt to have either the most recent content appear first, or have something that is most relevant displayed first.
Bluesky Feeds offer an ideal alternative to Twitter feeds based on chronological algorithms, as they more effectively surface relevant content while not showing users things they have already seen or are uninterested in.
Bluesky Feeds are still in beta, but are available to all Bluesky users. To create one, go to the Feeds tab of the Bluesky app and click “Create Feed.”
Here are a few advantages of choosing Bluesky Feeds:
- Your feed can show only content most relevant to you, letting you customize how and when content appears in it.
- And by saving time by not scrolling through lengthy lists of irrelevant material, your time could be better spent elsewhere.
