Needs work. Hope someone is working
As Twitter and Facebook push people away, Minds is my favorite platform concept. It's clean and smooth and not a ripoff of anything else.
Unfortunately it's tough to find things to follow, or that are trending, so you feel kind of isolated until you search out individual people or things to follow.
Also this is kinda technical but I like to scroll through my feed by swiping up and stopping with my thumb when something catches my eye. On Facebook, Twitter, and instagram this works perfectly but on Minds it will open whatever I tapped my thumb on. I might be the only one who surfs an app like this but it really throws me off my game.
What other platforms used to feel like
I’m new to Minds, but I do really enjoy the feel and concept of the platform. It’s the most free feeling platform I’ve used so far and that’s mainly because they aren’t banning people non stop for seemingly innocuous things. A lot of other platforms have turned into a digital high school, either your in or your out given the days trend or hot take. And if you’re out you’re really out. That’s horrifying, given how much more important and necessary these platforms have become in our world. People keep equating digital platforms to a town squares, I think that’s very accurate. In Minds I don’t worry about what others might think or even more so what the platform itself might think, I’m just myself without worry. All of us SHOULD feel that way inherently but sadly the online world is flooded with people watching every word and self censoring to appease the masses and the platform (consciously or subconsciously). It’s truly not human to act like that. If you want to try a more laid back and honest platform this, so far, seems to be the place.

Thank you very much for your positive feedback! -Bashy
Love the concept, app almost unusable
The app now does a flashing change of posts on the home newsfeed page when I open it (desktop version too). So annoying. Also, my feed is so busy and I have no way of muting certain users without unfollowing or blocking them. I cannot prioritize certain creators either. It’s so much overload that it’s practically unusable. I hope they end up fixing this (on many levels) as I adore the underlying concept. It has a lot going for it and an upscale user base (much less troll like behavior compared to a Twitter or Gab). I will keep checking back until this turns the corner. I’m a believer in this concept and it has some great bones.
Edit: finally had to delete the app. I can no longer post anything (just get a refresh circle continually). Went to help page to comment on someone else’s post but it said my post had an error and could not be posted . The app itself is almost unusable. You can’t see replies. Still no mute. Repeated posts. No way to prioritize. Desktop is definitely better but im usually on my phone. You’re killing a great idea. I’m now looking for a better free speech alternative. Too bad because the community is great. But the app looks like it was made by my high schooler.
