Help! Does anyone know why my WordPress Reader doesn’t seem to show all new posts of everyone I follow in its feed? I naively thought that was the purpose of it, but frustratingly it seems not…
Does it work more like Facebook’s newsfeed, where it chooses only to give you what it considers to be ‘top posts’ rather than ‘most recent’ as default so you have to change it every time you want to see all the latest updates from people? To me that just creates a stupid cycle of all the ‘top posts’ always remaining at the top because that’s all people can see, and everything else staying buried in cyberspace… Grrr…!
Is there something I have to do (within the Reader rather than signing up to emails, which surely defeats the purpose of having the Reader in the first place) to make sure I do catch everything I want to catch from the people I want to follow?
I’ve just realised I’ve been missing a whole pile of stuff for goodness knows how long from a whole load of people who by now must be thinking I’ve abandoned following their blogs… 😦
