Why would we want disc golf featured in a magazine that does this with their website?....

Ohh why not? Dynamic Discs is being crammed down everyone's throat on social media, so why not in print media? Maybe we can all hear more about the engagement of their bottom tier traveling pros some more.

Huh? I see some tournament clips, In the Bag videos, a putting clinic with Paige and Ricky, and some sort of dubs event. Can't you skip past or simply don't click on stuff you don't want to see? If that's the case, it isn't being crammed down your throat; you are opening your mouth to take it in.

Not necessarily. If you like or follow their pages, that's one thing, but Facebook and their convoluted algorithm think that because your friends are into a certain company, or that you are in groups pertaining to an activity in general (in our case, disc golf) they need to plaster said company's social media contributions all over your feed as well.

Hmmm, guess I must be lucky not to have this problem. I am in a bunch of DG groups on FB and haven't encountered anything remotely close to annoying. I just went through my FB feed and only found 2 DG company ads/social media releases out of the most recent 190 items (the other DG stuff was from my groups/friends.)

For those who aren't as lucky, does unfollowing and/or hiding posts tell FB to quit it? Or do they just stop for a little while and then start doing it again later?

EDIT: Also not clicking on that link in case it gives them a green light to spam my feed.

The biggest problem with Dynamic? Fanbois. This will create more. Pass.
