Dear Medium devs,
I love that I can tailor my feed by following tags, ‘publications’ and individual writers. But we are only half way to ideal. I don’t have any way to dismiss pieces I’m not interested in. Or have already read. It is a waste of my bandwidth and time to download and scroll past pieces I read the last time I visited. I’m told there’s an app ‘Tinder’ that lets the user eliminate prospective dates by swiping to the side. Could I have that capability please? I understand you can track how far I get into an article — let’s build us an algorithm around this. Like, if I only complete a small percentage of articles from a source, you only show me the most-recommended articles from that source. More broadly, you might consider abandonment rates vs. likes in rating your recommendations. TIA for your time and attention, Jesse Ray over and out!
