    I've had a look, but I don't see anything different. Mind you, I haven't really been on much the last couple of week. I've been poor and the weather murky = little nice to photograph.

    My feed still looks like it's in a chronological order.

    Mine is the same as monsta's. Hadn't noticed until today but I'm assuming it's been like this since the design changed?

    Annoying.

    I didn't notice until monsta mentioned it, but mine isn't. All the updates are from today, but some from this morning are appearing more recently than those in the last few hours.

    I'm trying to work out if there is some sort of pattern. It may be that photos from people whose photos I tend to like more frequently are coming first, but I'm not sure.

    That's supposed to be the base for the algorithm used in this new system. But what about being surprised by new photos from people I hadn't liked before? How are they getting a chance? Anyway, too much thought about something unimportant I guess. But I find their thinking faulty.

    My life has been well and truly MADE now that Michelle McManus follows me.

    An utter queen.

    speaking of name dropping i was recently followed by andy butler (of hercules and love affair fame). i didn't follow him back and i discovered i was unfollowed a week later. i guess semi-celebrities #f4f too. or worse #f4fandunf.

    How people keep track of follow-backs from a line of strangers is beyond me. What a waste of memory space

    I liked one post about Lush and now, all I seem to see is people meticulously chopping up bath bombs at high speed before adding various other potions and giving themselves a piss-coloured bath to climb into.

    The recommendations are fucked for sure. I liked one video of a dog doing something I can't even remember now, and ALL TWO DOZEN OR SO of the "stories" at the top of the search screen were dogs. It seems to have snapped out of it now.

    I keep getting handsome Indian actors suggested on mine, because it's similar to something I interacted with. LIKE WHAT?

    Mine is mostly drag race stuff (stretching my interest enough) and roided out Japanese body builders because some of my friends seem to like them

    I with Facebook would go back to before when you could just unfollow people instead of snoozing them
