Instagram and Threads says they will stop pushing political content on users

I’ll wait until I have confirmation that this isn’t an attempt to silence LGBTQIA+ people, feminists and POC. I’ve been burned too many times now by groups who think that racism, misogyny, homophobia and transphobia aren’t political, but complaining about it is.

Wait, did I say that out loud.

It would be even better if they showed me the content of people I specifically followed, instead of a bunch of random videos.


The moment social media sites started showing anything but a list of posts from people I followed in chronological order, they lost me for good. It still seems absolutely insane to me that people would accept anything else.




Having considered the matter at length: reverse-chronological should be the default.

I could debate that subject, but ‘newest to oldest’ works too, instead of it being a ‘this post had 47467 comments/likes on it, so we are showing it to you first’ sort of thing.

If they could also stop pushing religious content on me that’d also be good; kthxbai.

THIS. THIS!!! is my primary complaint with failbook. Show my what my friends have posted, newest to oldest, and I’ll be happy.


Sometimes I don’t see posts from friends until days after they posted them. That’s ridiculous. But my friends aren’t giving money to Facebook. Content farms are. And so here we are.
