, I thought I was going freakin crazy with this nonsense, this is the second or third time recently this weirdness has happened. Sad to know this was apparently intentional and I'm a bonafide lab rat, apparently.+Yonatan Zunger

, I submitted feedback earlier about this because I thought I was going crazy and, frankly I'm getting sick of muting posts having zero relevance to me just to see actual current content in chronological order. Can you imagine picking up a copy of your favorite newspaper, and it was full of content from years previously? That's what my feed is like. I'm coming in to see a feed of current events and spending most of my time muting people and posts left and right.
Algorithm totally not working with me. The top 50%+ of the posts bubbling up in my feed have zero relevance to me. The only way I can see content in any semi-chronological order right now is to search on common articles like a
and sort by "most recent". This is ignorant to me, unintuitive piss poor UX.
I personally don't appreciate feeling like a guinea pig. It would have been more appropriate to offer this as an option. I've posted about this weird crap at least twice in the last two months or so when I saw it peeking through.
Seriously, can this be turned off, or at least give a toggle on the user side ASAP? If it continues to be this great of a challenge to see chronological content in my feed, I have no interest in sticking around to put up with it.
Whose selfish idea was it to deploy this silently with no clear user toggle ability?
