Quora is the most popular question and answer website on the Internet. You can ask pretty much anything and there will be someone to answer your question. And most of the time, you won’t even have to ask the question, chances are, someone might have already asked the same and a lot of people might have answered it too.
Quora also lets you follow people, topics, and questions. Whenever there is an update on it, you will be notified about it. Sometimes, you might see a lot of crappy content on your feed. For the last few weeks, I have noticed that my Quora account or feed was showing full of irrelevant content including adult content and other topics that I am not interested in.
If you are facing issues like this on your Quora account where it shows irrelevant content to you, then follow the steps given in the article to get rid of them and make Quora show you topics that are of your interest.
In this article, let’s see how to reset our Quora feed to show relevant and useful content instead of content from topics that you are not interested in.
First of all, there is no reset button in Quora that will let you reset everything and start from the beginning. So, we are required to do things manually like unfollowing topics out of our interest and muting topics that are interesting to you.
Also, take a look at some cool Subreddits if you are an active Reddit user.
How to Reset Quora Feed or Topics?
As you might already know, Quora comes with an option where you can select topics of your interest. Once selected, Quora will make sure to show contents based on the same. Your search history and read history also influence what Quora shows to you on the feed.
If you have selected irrelevant topics earlier, that might be the reason why Quora is showing you unwanted or other content out of your interest.
Follow the steps mentioned below to change and select topics of your interest so that Quora can suggest better and useful content to you.
Step 1: Open Quora’s website and log in to your account. Click on your Quora profile picture from the top bar. And now click on your name.
Step 2: From here, click on the Topics option to see all the topics that you are currently following.
Step 3: Now go through the Topics list and find topics that are you are not interested in. Simply click on the Following button to unfollow that specific topic.
Repeat the same process for all topics that you are not interested in. Once done, it’s time to follow topics that are of your interest.
Step 4: Head over to the search bar and type for a topic that you are interested in. For example, I am searching for Apple. From the By type filter section, click on Topics. Now, the search results will only include topics based on your search query.
Step 5: From the search results, select the topic and click on the Follow button next to the topic name.
Do this for a couple of topics that you are interested in.
Once done, wait for a couple of days. Now Quora will start to show you questions and answers based on the topics that you have selected.
Mute Topics Not In Line With Your Interest
Even after unfollowing the topics and adding new ones, Quora might still show you questions and answers from Topics that you might not be interested in. In this case, all you have to do is just Mute those topics.
Quora provides us an option where you can mute certain topics from where you don’t want anything to show up in your feed.
So, let’s see how to mute unwanted topics in your Quora account.
- Just open Quora and scroll through your feed
- Once you found a Topic which you are not interested in, just hover over the Topic name and click on the three dots icon. Now click on the Mute button to get rid of all content from that particular topic.
- Repeat the same process for all topics on your feed that you are not interested in.
This way you can clear up your Quora profile. Do the above-mentioned steps for a couple of days and after a week or so, you will start to see that only relevant content will be shown to you.
This is how we reset our Quora feed to only show content that is of our interest. Quora does not come with a reset option where you can automatically clear everything and start from the beginning. For the same reason, we are required to do things manually to get rid of unwanted content from our feed.
Next time onwards, whenever you see content from any topic that you are not interested in, then simply mute the topic. This is the best way to keep your Quora account clean and interesting.
