Customizing
The New York Times Experience

The New York Times publishes around 160 articles per day, with only a fraction of those articles making it to the digital home page. We wanted to find a way for our loyal readers to easily keep up with the stories that are most relevant to them. Your Feed allows readers to follow different types of content, and find their stories in their feed.

Following

Some channels pull stories from existing New York Times sections and columns, such as Modern Love, while other channels, such as Gender & Society, pull content from a variety of sections. These curated channels highlight the breadth of journalism we publish and surface relevant content readers may have missed.

 
 

Other channels include commentary from our reporters and editors, and feature worthwhile reads from outside of The Times. This added context is only available on Your Feed.

Creating a new space

Your Feed is separate from the home page or section fronts. Creating this new space within the app required new navigation and iconography. It also allows the user to make other customizations, like Saved for Later easier to access.

To help our readers discover and manage channels, we organized them by category. Custom illustrations bring a little whimsy and visual distinction. 


Your Feed has been informed by user research and feedback. I wrote more in-depth about that process on Times Open →
