I know, this is meta… Product Hunt has changed quite a bit since it started as an email digest just over two years ago. Today, we’re introducing another big update — a more personalized and simplified ProductHunt.com. If you login, you’ll see a personalized feed, highlighting things upvoted and posted by those you follow. Your Product Hunt will look diff… See more

@rrhoover I love that you guys have the courage to try new things, and know when they are not working. Keep up the great work. 😻

@rrhoover I love the idea about a personalized feed and simple vertical feed. I'm still not completely sold on the way you display product-pages - I'm talking about the low-opacity backgrund that follows every product-page. Maybe it's just my personal preference... That said, PH remains one of my favorite sites and your Chrome Extension is super handy! Ke… See more

@rrhoover Love the new design already, was never sure about the carousel homepage... I hope this sticks! DId you find the carousel have a negative effect on your usage metrics at all?

@rrhoover Wicked! 👏🏻

@rrhoover my favorite version yet. Except for media attachments, they don't seem as intuitive to me. The get it button being the only link takes some getting used to as well, but let's see how it goes.

@rrhoover Loving 3.0.
Ryan Hoover@rrhoover · Founder, Product Hunt
@sturge87 we actually saw a lot of people navigating to /tech, /games, etc. to view the vertical feed on individual category pages. The horizontal navigation was less usable and ultimately not scaleable for where we're going.

@rrhoover congrats! What are the plans for the IOS app? Thanks
Adam Marx@adammarx13 · Freelance writer/editor and music addict
@rrhoover Love the 3.0 update. One thing I will say though is that I think PH should guard against the feed becoming "too personalized." I quite like the idea of first seeing products which have been upvoted by those I follow, but I also don't want to miss out on anything which I might find interesting that others may not. A large part of discovery is serend… See more

@trovatten I agree with your point on the product pages. There's something about them I feel could be better.
Ryan Hoover@rrhoover · Founder, Product Hunt
@tribaling we just released an update to the iOS app, now with iPad support. We met yesterday to discuss roadmap. We're also planning to simplify the app.
Joe Sturgess@sturge87 · Marketing Exec, SwiftSocial
@rrhoover Yeah that's what I tended to do a lot. Great work!

@rrhoover hunting PH3.0 a really great explainer for people who don't know about the update before coming to ph. It quells any confusion caused by the new layout by letting users know there was a huge update. :)
Rob Kenedi@rkenedi · EiR @ TWG, host #smallrooms podcast
@rrhoover It's more meta to see the PH bar at the top of PH ;) I'm surprised there isn't a "Hello product hunters!" part of the page :P
Marco Peluso@marpeluso · Founder and CEO, Qardio, Inc.
I love it
Louis Galipeau@muloka · Product Manager / DJ
@rrhoover FEATURE REQUEST I miss being able to see who upvoted anyone else's comments.
Seb Kreutzberger@skreutzb · SwiftyBeaver, Founder & CEO
@rrhoover Thank you for replacing the horizontal scrolling with vertical scrolling!
Ryan Hoover@rrhoover · Founder, Product Hunt
@muloka we updated the post pages and haven't taken the time to add it back in. I'm with you.
Rob Williger@robertwilliger · CMO MapFig, Copywriting for Non-Mktrs
@rrhoover Great job by you and the team. I was one who would click over as I preferred the vertical scroll. I also like how now I see top things in different categories right from the home page. I noticed that there is no longer a visible link to any of the upcoming pages? Is that a change or just something that hasn't been implemented yet?
