Why can’t I ever find that excellent post in my algorithm-controlled LinkedIn feed?

I was just reading it, just now. I can’t remember who shared or liked or commented on it that brought it into my feed in the first place. And now you (LinkedIn) have refreshed my page without me wanting it, and I’ve lost it. I didn’t click the link to the article, so it doesn’t show in my browser history, and I didn’t get a chance to interact with it myself.

It was good enough to make me really mad I can’t find it again. In my mind, the post and linked article are now the single most important thing I’ll see or read today, and it’s lost to me. No matter how long I scroll through my feed I know I won’t find it, your algorithm is hiding it from me indefinitely now.
