Home screen spammed with myfitnesspal blog

NickleArseNickleArse Posts: 15Member Member Posts: 15Member Member
Guys I don't mind the occasional blog post appearing on my home fees in the last few days there's nothing by myfitnesspal blog posts appearing. There's close to 30 articles appearing in my last 3 days worth of feed.

Is there a way to opt out from this spam? Is there a way to reduce this spam?

    It seems even Premium users who have the latest mobile app versions are getting all of these video blog posts with no way to turn them off. I am using an old, old version of Android - I have not updated in over two years - and I am not plagued by them, because I still have the option to turn them off. I am so glad I have not updated.

    I hope MFP software developers made a mistake and will correct this soon.

    Yeah this super f’ing obnoxious on the part of mfp. What a shady move.

    Obviously not. Might just download an apk of an older version of the app that doesn't have all this unwanted crap.

    If anyone would like to do the same, apkmirror is a safe place to download older versions of apps. The only downside is you have to turn off auto updates in the app store. Any questions let me know :smile:

    This seems to have been fixed? I don't have any blog ads on my feed today.

    Hmm you're lucky, I've still got about 10 per day appearing. It means I basically don't see anything that originates organically from my friends

    :disappointed:

    I’m having the same issue and it’s ridiculous. I have very few friends, so when they pop up I want to see, instead I keep getting 4-5 blog/whatever posts, then maybe one actual feed item, then more blog things. I wish they would at least have a way to shrink them into just a title after you see them or something!

    Glad I'm not the only one to notice.

    This is so irritating. So they find out we don’t want to see this rubbish blog, provide an option to turn them off in our newsfeed, and then override our settings and bring them back with a vengeance??? WTH MyFitnessFrenemy????

    Yes this needs to be fixed.

    I won’t be renewing that for f’ing sure. What a di*k move.

    If this can't be removed on premium I see no advantage to sub.

    Premium,but there's really not much benefit to it for the price.

    I really hate it too. The videos are becoming more numerous. I heard someone mention it eating up data plan. I know it hinders my using the app and I find myself using it less and less.

    The app has become essentially useless with the constant blog posts (and they are the same posts over and over again) and now I can't find the "post" button on my phone. Come on MFP-I get that you need to make money but this is ridiculous. I've been on here since 2010 and the product has steadily declined. I've stuck around because of my friends but now I can't even see or comment on their posts!

    There are 5 new blogs hanging out at the top of my newsfeed. The option is turned off. It has always been turned off.

    @alex @betty - What should we do?
