This means that feeds often pull users into content consumption and away from the task they’re trying to accomplish. That’s fine if they’re on the bus to work or if they’re just chilling on the couch, but if your product exists to help users get shit done, then feeds can actually get in the way of helping them to complete their tasks.
Very insightful. I personally like Gmail’s redesign where it reminds me that its been 3 days since someone emailed and I needed to reply. Or how Tesla can connect to Gmail so it tells you where you’re going that day. It would be cool but scary if Facebook can organize the feed to remind you of your events and such. I know they sorta do this already with memories. But should probably be pushed a bit further.
