        "Recommended" posts just suck. Either stop it or give an OPT OUT. Just one of the many reasons people stop using Yahoo products, so quit ruining my experience on Flickr.

        Why are users who obviously have not participated in YEARS offered as "recommended?" What is the point in following someone who is not posting anything? Change the algorithm to exclude accounts that have not posted public in several months.

        Please show feeds from people that we follow on one side, and groups and recommendations on the other. It is more than annoying to have to check the source of the photos in my feed, especially when most of the ones Flickr imposes on us are not of interest to me.

        Also, work on your algorithm of recommendations. So far, I've been interested in less than 5% of your recommendations. Maybe less than 1%.

        I agree, its the whole world of people we do not want to see, if we did we would look for them !!

        I often see images in Groups/Recommended from people I blocked for various reasons. Please add an option to hide images from blocked users.

        I agree with OP on this. It's like spam that I cannot turn off.

        I think Merenyi Melinda's suggestion is rather good. Give a choice! The recommended pictures may be interesting but it is annoying when a platform just interferes on its own accord. I follow people because I want to see their pictures and can expand this whenever I want to anyway without suggestions I haven't asked for.
        The new layout is cumbersome, too many clicks before I can see what I want to see, for example comments on photos I commented on, is now in the notice thing which means I have to click on the bell first and then on the photo that was refered to rather than seeing it in the activity feed straight away. Could the old and new layout work alongside each other so people who for example want columns to see more information/images can choose this and others stay with the old layout? Why change something that was working fine? I like the way statistics have changed some time ago and liked seeing images on black background in the activity feed but this change make my Flickr use difficult, cluttered and more time consuming.

        How difficult is it to add a few options? For example:

        I want to see recommended photos from
        - any Flickr members
        - only from people I follow
        - only from people tagged as friend/family
        - none

        this new "recommended" thing is following in the footsteps of facebook which is spamming my newsfeed with people i might want to know NO!, posting my friends likes and reactions even though i don't care about those.

        to avoid seeing those i have to unfollow my friends which results in their normal posts not being seen.

        stop trying to force us into interacting with people in ways we don't want to. or with people we don't care about!

        Agree with the above, as I only have so many "hours" in my day, and this Flickr. change is an imposition for me.

      • OuttakesOuttakes commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        The new format is TERRIBLE! It seems like you just made a change for the sake of making a change. I see no advantage to the new format. Please give us the option to use the old format.

        I totally agree with all that is said here,it is now cumbersonme to comment on photos,please please go back to what was !!!!!

      • AnonymousAnonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Agreed! Some people upload much more often than others of portraits or what have you. In general, I enjoy looking at their work but not having all of my feed be all photos of the same subject. I then have to scroll down A LOT to see if there are other photos by other photographers that I would like to view. Please revert back to the old feed!

        Lately, every day flicker creates new albums (sets) from files on my hard drive that I don't want and have to delete. How can I stop this.
