How do you like the new filter setup on Live Feed?

I'm sure you guys have noticed the new Live Feed set up.

You can now create your own feed by selecting post types and follow types filters from drop down menus. (you need to click on "Filter By" link on your feed to see these options)

Let me give you an example...Let's say you want to view all the questions from users you follow... You set the first filter to "Questions" and the second filter to "Users I follow" and there you go, you see only the questions from users you follow on your Live Feed.

Or another scenario: You want to see all the posts (including questions, answers, comments, articles) from all the topics you follow...You set the first filter to "All Activity" and the second filter to "Topics I Follow"...This will give you all the activity from your favorite topics.

You can also save this filter setting...After selecting the "post type" and "follow type" filters from drop down menus, you can click on "set default" and this will save your preferences for your feed. So the next time you come to the feed page, you will see your preferred posts in the feed. Of course, you can always change the filters and look at other post types and follow types.

It seems complicated at first, but once you get familiar with it, filtering becomes a very powerful tool which lets you create your own G@G universe.

Let us know what you think about this feature and help us improve the way we follow and share...Your thoughts?

  • I like it too, but mostly I want to see activities from everyone, so I doubt that I'd be using the filter anytime soon..

    What I'd appreciate would be a function to hide all activities from blocked users so that their names and questions don't keep popping up in our general live feed. Or the option to hide specific users. Is that implementable at all?

    • Hi...You can filter by the topics you follow...so if you want to follow certain topics, just add it to your follow list...thanks for the feedback

    • Show All
    • You can see questions by one Topic at a time by going to the Questions drop down and clicking By Topic. After choosing a Topic, you can browse questions, starting with the most recent, for that Topic only :-)

    • I know, it just takes what too many clicks

  • Getting used to it. Anyway it's a lot better tban before

    • There are more filtering choices now, and you can now set a default filter to keep it on what you like most without having to change it each time :-)

    • Ah that's better

    • I tried the new filter set the default checked out a question went right back to showing everything. So in all honesty the new filter sucks.

  • i like it, it's very convenient

  • I don't like it at all. I have been a member for years and I have stopped using this less because of the newest settings. Seriously, just go back to the few main tabs. Its easier to scroll that way.

  • sigh, post is too long:/

    Anyways, I just don't care for the new GAG. I used to come on all the time, now? Once a week.
    I'm only on now because I'm having a lazy day.

  • I'm sure it's useful, but i've never used it and never will... Kind of upset they changed the upvote and downvote display for opinions though, I don't see why that was changed at all.

  • I seem to like / love everything about GAG always :) you guys are very hard working as well as cooperative and assertive with your responses as well as initiatives.

    You listen to people and revert (especially @Sparrow24 - am unaware if she's assigned to a specific timeline or stuff but she's awesome)

    I like the filter stuff and the newer look :)

  • The transition from the older version to the old version (just before this) was significant, but ultimately turned out well I think. The changes from yesterday to today are relatively minor in my opinion, and probably will turn out making it work even better.

  • I think It will become useful as many people Use live feed and Setting it to filter questions every time you come to the site in annoying so with this addition it looks better.

    Also I noticed if you use Larger Screens Like a 32 that I use to view the site there Might be a Problem of the parts not being correctly fitted so You just need to zoom in till it fixes that.

    The overall experience became tedious with the initial update. I'm very impressed with the new changes.

  • It's better but needs to STAY SET to what we set it to.

    If I set it to trending tab, question filter. It should stay like that everytime I come to gag.
