Here it is: Best stuff first

Extremely handy if you follow a lot of people and hate missing anything good. 

Best Stuff First moves the best stuff on your dashboard—mhm!—right up to the top. 

It’s rolling out this week on iOS and Android, and comes with this Help Center article.  

Thanks! ✌️

Head’s up folks! Tumblr decided to shit the bed and go non-chronological!

This bullshit is being rolled out this week and it’s going to be default!

This is dangerous and manipulative.

The main reasons for these “algorithms” that Instagram, Facebook and Twitter have rolled out are manipulating what people see. Content they want you to see gets pushed to the top, anything threatening to their interests gets quietly tossed to the bottom so you’ll be too tired or bored to see it.

I can see this seriously messing with the livelihood of artists, so please reblog if you can!

This adds a whole new level to being shadowbanned. Now you can just be shadow-shoved-to-the-bottom and no one will ever see your posts again. Ngl I see this as a way Staff will deal with users they find ~problematic~.

Remember that time Facebook did the exact same thing, then conducted illegal psychosocial experiments on it’s users by tampering with their activity feeds to make depressing posts, happy posts, etc. show up more often to manipulate the emotional states of their users?

It’s probably in your best interest to disable this.

No, listen. Do you know how angry this makes me? As someone who relies on timed posting for everyone to see my art (especially since it barely get 5-7 notes as most) I am so ANGRY.

No one, and I mean no one wants this. At least there’s an option to turn this off but still, what an awful thing to do.

Yup. Not to mention the fact that what I ‘like the most’ changes on an almost daily basis depending on my mood at the time. So some nights I will be keen to get into political stuff, discourse and so on whereas other nights I can’t be bothered getting into that (generally when I’m tired or stressed) so I scroll past it and reblog memes and pretty stuff. How is this algorithm going to predict how I am feeling on a particular day!?

When the fuck will social media companies realize that their users NEVER want to see content in ANY order other than chronological?

NOTICE to all our fans!  Tumble ALREADY makes it hard for adult blogs like this one to be seen or found.  This blog RELIES on queued posts, and now they’re trying to make sure you never see them.  If you want to keep seeing all the anal goodness we share, TURN THIS SETTING OFF.  @staff thanks for making it even harder for us all.  

I have so many questions as to why this blog reblogged this post from me.
