Curating news ... or not curating news ... or stimulus/response + subscription curating

i think a notion that news should not show you something that you don’t want to see is stupid.   rather i think there should be ways to navigate yourself to what you do want to see.  i do that on facebook by what I poost,  respond to, and the people to which i subscribe. ← that works for me.  if i dont want to see somthing that floats by, i just ignore it.  i end up ignoring a whole lot.

Yes, in general I agree, especially the way Mark treats the news as should being only what he is interested in.

As far as hidden stuff, ideally it should appear in the news if you have been commenting there and not if you havent … but that is a more advanced feature that may come with the subscription ability that has been much talked about but is not here right now.

Same way with the M$M, FB,G+, fbi,  I go for what I’m interested in. This one seems a bit more intrusive – can’t quite pin it down. FB – I just look at the notices which is a who list & then they are gone. 
Here they don’t go away as easy or often as I would like. null

Si says
Well, besides that FB is a subscribe to post service, the other thing you don’t seem to be considering is that “things are gone on FB” because that’s all the activity on them, in your circle. I sometimes like something on FB, or leave a comment, especially in the Abe groups, and get 100’s of things in my notifications every hour because there are so many people liking and adding their own comments.

Clearly you interact with posts with little activity by people in your circles on FB. Here, there is massive activity in your circles. Here you are a VIP person, not just a nobody as you seem to be on FB if you don’t get much activity on stuff you are interested in.  

Mark de LA says
Yep I knew that. Plus I can list them again for some length of time & revisit if I want. Again, it will be interesting if fbi expands beyond a regular count of 3 users. null

Si says
… and again, that is why we will have to have subscriptions. This seems to be an infinite loop of sayings the sames things! The answers seem to get lost in some verse or other.

Mark de LA says
Apparently someone wanted to fork this up a bit more. null
