Did Medium just change the way they're putting content on the home page?

For the last three days, I've only found one, maybe two articles I was interested in reading from my home page.

Prior to this (for months, I might add), I've found 10-15 minimum, daily.

Is this just a phase or did Medium do something? It's such a sharp drop off for me that it's more than noticeable.

I was wondering if anyone else was experiencing this as well.

I was wondering the same thing myself. Social media apps across the board seem to be tweaking their algorithms for the "better experience".  To me, it is like driving into a town you have not visited in years and getting lost.  Thanks to the changes you don't recognize any of the landmarks.
