The Memories feed on my home page is 'really annoying". I have an aunt who must be uploading every scrap of paper and picture she can find. That's great for her home page but every time I turn my home page on I am barraged by massive amounts of pictures and documents. Sure I can hide those memories or even remove the persons name from the page but no sooner have I done that when another massive amount of documents appear. How can this be turned off for people who are not interested to have their home screen hi-jacked?
Personally I just ignore all these items - and go on my merry way by clicking on the menu items to navigate where I want to go
I dont waste my time trying delete anything.
BUT you do bring up a good point - and interesting that for such a oft-annoying item - no one yet seems to have answered your question . . .
Maybe there is no way to turn it off?? which makes me wonder about other things . . .
I also think FS is going thru some changes as to their home page - due to the supporting architecture that was used to build the home page - that apparently was no longer supported . . . some comments I have seen to that effect. . . I think FS is moving to new foundational architecture in some of their systems. . .
BUT I am not a FS employee.
a few years back the COMMUNITY architecture all of sudden abruptly changed - again I think to a lack of support in the underlying architecture. I just wish FS would do a better job of smoother transitions. I understand that technology changes and FS has to move with the changes - but wish their moves were smoother some times.
No, there's no way to turn the Home Fed off.
The only way to slow it down is to click "Remove [Person's Name] from this page" as you mentioned. Or email your aunt and ask her to only tag important images. There is no current way to ignore a submitter, however.
Technically, no one is "hijacking" your Home page; the fed is doing what the fed is supposed to do. Facebook works in a similar way. I'd ignore the page and/or bookmark a more important page.
I would suggest bookmarking either:
Then you won't be distracted by it anymore... hopefully...
