    “Recommended” feed. While I like the chronological and trending feed having a personal feed might make me view posts I might like. Only thing that twitter does good.

      Is the mastodon “lists” feature something like what you are talking about?

        Just looked up about lists.

        The “Lists” feature lets you create mini-timelines that show posts from selected accounts you already follow.

        I also want posts from the people I don’t follow but might match my preferences.

          Hmm, okay. Not too sure mastodon provides an API endpoint for that but I will throw it on the tracker and look into adding it. 🫡🫡🫡

      Most social media sites do this by using algorithms to see what users post about, who they follow.

      I’ve been read about how Threads is being defederated because it will be tracking it’s users and it’s something most don’t want here.

        Meta has a really bad history using users data for their own good and yeah that’s the reason people are sceptical of Threads. Twitter on other hand, its just they are milking their subscribers. But they have lots of porn bots which makes it unusable sometimes. I think there is an ios app named “Mammoth” that has a similar feed that uses algorithm but I use android so I can’t say whether that’s good.
