Recommended Items FAQ

What's the Recommended feed all about?

The Recommended feed is your single place to quickly find the stories that matter to you. These stories come from two places: Pocket’s recommendations that are sourced from the millions of items that are being saved to Pocket every day, and items recommended by the people you decide to follow on Pocket.
