Welcome to our feedback center!

Here is how it works:
Enter your feedback in the appropriate category. (Tip: check that an entry doesn’t already exist)
You have 20 votes. Use them to support specific feedback you think matters most. You can reallocate your votes over time by removing them from previously voted on items, or when your votes are returned to you once a feedback is addressed and closed by our team.

Thank you for your participation, and congrats for helping improve online media for millions around the world!

NOTE: If you are experiencing issues that feel like clear defects (links not working; layout breaking; poor performance; incorrect/irrelevant related interests displayed on articles, etc), please use the “Report Bug” link in the product rather than this feedback forum. Doing so will enable us to capture information from your session that will make it easier to debug the issue. Please use this feedback forum for suggestions/concerns about design and usability and to suggest product improvement ideas.

  1. Is this sleek enough?

    My initial though was whether this is sleek enough when i first entered into the site. I only see a bunch of headlines, some were relevant, some were not so relevant to my interests. I also think that we can do a better job grabbing users interests at the start. Arguably, a big part of the products success is the initial instinct on whether they like it or don't. Providing relevant content to them at the very beginning is critical.

  2. Shawn White - Pushing for Skateboarding in Olympics.... Not Computer Science

    Why don't we try to create smarter buckets. Sports / Olympics / Athletes / Skateboarding... Not Computer Science, the Related Interests are correct, the placement of this in this stream is real bad.

  3. links to sharing articles

    it would be good to have some ways of sharing articles, for example after reading a particular article, and i felt like a friend would find it useful/interesting, it would be nice if there was a way of emailing the article to a friend right away

  6. after clicking collections icon in top corner, clicking on the page in background should make the collections box disappear

    Perhaps you're going to redesign the experience of the collections icon in upper left -- (it's pretty poor experience) but at the least there should be a way to make it go away by clicking outside the black box

  7. add history to reading activities

    One of the features I like about Google reader is that they provide history of what you read. So, if you want to go back to a previous article that you read two days ago, you can easily go back to find it.

    Can we have some features like this? It could either be similar to what Google Reader has: based on date. Or even better to provide a history search by keywords.

  8. hide an article after you have read it

    currently, after you have read an article and go back to collection, the article is still there. Is it possible to hide the article you have read already? Or at least grey it out or something like that to differentiate.

  9. Dictionary

    I think a dictionary would be useful. Maybe as a link on the top? Have it as a small pop-up so users can research a unknown term without having to leave the article they are reading.

  10. link to category from article redirects to 'top stories'

    http://z9.yahoo.com/Living%20Nature-yct:001000643/dumpster-diving-bear-cubs-rescued-ladder-wielding-couple-191313152.html

    I tried to click 'living nature' category after reading article, and it redirected me to top stories -- seems like a bug (bug reporting system doesn't work) Is this because I haven't yet declared "living nature" as an interest?

  11. There is no landing page with a preview of all the interests I am following

    Currently all the interests are either hidden on the top menu or one has to swipe to see the interests. Is it possible to have a landing page which previews the top trending article in each of the categories I am following? This way user will be able to discover more content.

  12. Article takes too much time to load

    There is a latency issue. Article takes too much time to load and the user has to stare at a blank screen for a long time

  13. Center aligned article titles are difficult to red

    It's better that they are left aligned. Center aligned text makes it difficult to read.m

  14. Additional links

    Is it possible to active the additional links at the bottom of some articles? These additional links would be useful to users.

  16. the right/left swipe should be labeled what they are

    If I'm in top stories, the screen on the right is unclear what it is going to be (it turns out to be the first interest, alpha-sorted?), perhaps it should have a vertical label above the hover-over arrow when you get close to the right side

  17. clicking on keyword in keyword list deletes that keyword

    When I added keywords to specify my interests, it didn't make sense that when I click on one in the list it gets deleted.

  18. feature to "share"/"print" (switch to print format)/"forward"?

    Could there be some boxes at the bottom of an article that we click on that allows us to forward/email to someone, to share (facebook etc.) or print (switch to print format)?

  20. Filtering by news outlet?

    Could there be a feature that allows me to build a list of news outlets I don't want to read articles from - or news outlets that I want to prioritize?
