Exploring Personalized Feeds
Often, Top News (consisting of important news stories covered by many sources) or Blindspots can be dominated by political narratives. If you're looking to break up your news consumption and explore more about what's happening in the world outside of the political sphere, we've got you covered!
Your For You Page
Find coverage made for you on your For You page. The content you find here is determined by your location, followed topics/sources, and app usage patterns. It includes local news updates and "My Feed", where you can view your personalized news feed. We recommend searching for a topic by entering a word or phrase in the search bar, and follow it by clicking the plus sign symbol to follow it.
Pro+ subscribers now have the power to create personalized news feeds focused on select topics or locations that matter most to you. This enhancement goes beyond the capabilities of My Feed, allowing you to curate mini-feeds that align perfectly with your interests.
*This feature is currently only available on Ground News web, but will be coming to the apps shortly.
If you'd like to learn more about Custom Feeds, rest assured as we have a help article which speaks to this feature.
Show Me Less of a Topic
Encountered a topic you'd rather not see on your feed anymore? Whenever you come across a story you’re not interested in, tap on the three dots in the top right corner of a story and choose "Show me less content like this." This will inform the algorithm to show you fewer articles about that topic and you should start seeing changes in your newsfeed immediately.
Your feedback matters, and we want to hear from you. If you can't find a topic that captures your interest, please don't hesitate to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org . We value your input and are committed to continuously enhancing your news-reading experience.
