Since Ello launched just over a year ago, we received lots of love for having two streams. This simple innovation keeps Ello organized and clutter-free. But there’s also been a lot of debate about the names we chose. Turns out “Friends & Noise” isn’t very intuitive.
So, starting tomorrow your Friends stream will be renamed “Following”, and your Noise stream “Starred”.
When you Star someone their posts appear in your Starred stream. Star people you love, or use Stars to sort people that occasionally bug the hell out of you (but who you want to follow anyway). It’s up to you.
The names will change, but the awesome functionality stays the same.
