Provide a way to remove GROUPS from my Flickr Feed

The new Flickr Feed page is TERRIBLE. I don't want to keep up the random posts to a ton of groups. I do want to keep up with a very SELECT group of PEOPLE I follow--there's a big difference between the two. The developers can go off on their merry tangents, just give us a way to arrange things the way WE like. Seem's fair enough to me!

    No comments since August 2016? Why is this one not closed? I can see a "Dont show in my feed" option. This one is resolved.

    If you do not want to see the group activity, I would ask you why you are a member of this group?!
    As a group admin I see that some people join 1000x groups and dumping photos in all of them.

    Many images presented by Pioneer Woman verge on soft **** which is why I left the group to begin with---not something I want my family to think I collect. So far all my efforts to delete this have been failures. Suggestion?

    It would be nice if we could choose which view is our default. I like the option of being able to see group activity, but I don't want it as my default.

  • Peter Tsang commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Please give us the option to select which groups to see. Otherwise, I will remove myself from some groups, and Flickr will lose the social aspect that groups are meant for.

    I use flickr for work, and even "safe" group content is often not suitable to appear on a workplace computer terminal.

  • AnKa commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I agree, group photos are annoying in the feed if you can't choose to have them in there or not. I liked the thumbnails when someone has uploaded more than one image which could easily be clicked on from the activity feed. Not everyone has the intention to follow in my view unmanageable numbers of people and photos so if we don't want to be bombarded we should not be "spammed" by content.

    I don't always have time to look at the Groups I have joined, so this is very irritating. I prefer to look at my groups about once a week so I don't like to see a "teaser" mixed in with my People photos.

  • Rowan Bristol commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    The feed page is a disaster. People and groups I don't follow are at the top, while the people I do follow ardently are now nowhere to be seen.

  • Matt Bieber commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Give us the option to turn "OFF" or "ON" the new groups view. We utilize Flickr as a portfolio tool for our high school students, and on more than one occasion recently VERY INAPPROPRIATE content has been forced shown to them in a group they did NOT choose to follow but was force suggested.

  • Martin commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    The addition of groups is bad enough, but it's also incredibly frustrating to have this two-column format that makes it difficult to browse the feed in a linear fashion. Instead of one stream, it looks like two parallel streams, and it forces me to do a lot of scrolling back to look at photos I missed from one column while looking at the opposite column. There's also an excessive amount of whitespace around the photos.

    Columns make sense in newspapers where the content is static and flows clearly, top of column to bottom of column, top of next column, repeat. It doesn't work for progressively-loaded content.

    If I could give all 50 of my votes to get you to revert to the prior setup, I'd do it.

    I agree. I loathe the new feed page. I want it to go back to the way it was. All of the other changes seem nice but the feed page has got to go!

  • greg g commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I like that there's now an actual bottom to the page that can be reached on the activity feed, but tossing in group stuff is unhelpful. It has me going thru and opting out of my marginally interesting groups to avoid gumming up the page with them and that, I suspect, is the opposite effect of what you intended. I also preferred the picture in picture thumbnails of additional images recently posted by those I follow instead of +3, etc.

  • Greg commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I agree, I don't want to see Flickr's "recommended" shots on my page, and don't want group activity on my page.

  • chassamax commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    There is a People view to see what post the peopple I folllow, a Group view to see what the is in group BUT where is the YOURSELF view ? How can I see now to view when someone comment one of my photo or follow me ?

    I will not use notification bell, the is too much notification to see something (I have 255 notifications this morning).

  • Howard Worf commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Put it back to the way it was, and that goes for the god awful groups beta too. I have been a pro subscriber for years, but I won't be renewing if the site retains this ghastly interface and keeps pursuing change for change's sake. And BTW the mobile app is rubbish, I never access Flickr from my phone or tablet because I can't see or interact with my groups and contacts.
