Dear Your Friends @ Medium :
Hi! First let me say, y’all are doing a great job! However, I have a question regarding my feed. Or maybe it’s a suggestion. Maybe I’m just insane. Or the bleach is messing with my head…but,
Every day, the top of my feed (on Android app) updates throughout the day; sometimes upon opening, sometimes when I refresh. This is a good thing. However, the REST of my feed seems to lay stagnant for days or weeks at a time. Is there something I’m doing wrong that keeps stories I have already read...heck, sometimes MEMORIZED...static on my page?
If I want to go back to a story, I bookmark it for later. Is there some way to clear out stories I have already finished to make room for more of the new content I know this platform is bursting with?
I know I can navigate to other stories, but I don’t always know what I’m looking for. I love the idea of being on the receiving end of something curated for me, since I often only have little pockets of time to read and no time to seek. But it seems like every break I get finds me scrolling once again through the exact same stories I read yesterday, or the day before, or last week.
What say you? Is there some solution to this dilemma?
