Adjusting your Content Preferences

Recommended stories on the homepage are based on many different algorithms but most of them are impacted by stories that you have been reading. As a result, if you start reading different types of stories and more often, the stories that are recommended to you will change.

To help make your recommendations even better and give you more control over your home feed experience, you can adjust your Content Preferences by blocking certain tags and choosing to include or exclude mature stories.

  • Include Mature: Choose whether or not you want to see Mature stories on your Home feed (if you’re of age) through a simple ‘on’ and ‘off’ toggle.
  • Blocked Tags: Control which stories you don’t want to see in the Home feed with the ability to block certain story tags. This means stories with tags you select in Blocked Tags will not show up as recommendations in your Home feed anymore. Not a fan of fanfic? No problem! All you have to do is block the tag #fanfic.
