Google Plus Please Learn from My Mutes

Muting a Post on Google Plus is easy.  Don't like a post, no problem...click the mute button.


But, What If Your Mute History "Taught" Google Plus About What You Don't Like...


What I would love to see is the ability for Google Plus to learn from my previous mutes. Similar to how Pandora Radio works. The reader (in the case of G+) provides positive or negative feedback for posts in the stream, which are taken into account for future selections. Something like a "mute similar posts" button would be great.

Mute Google Plus Posts Consistently...


I almost always mute posts involving certain subjects. Especially when exploring the "What's hot and recommended" stream.

Improved Google Plus Content...


Content creators could also get a better feel for how unpopular certain subjects are, and based on number of mutes, adjust the subject matter or frequency of posts.

Better Google Plus User Experience...


I am still trying to better navigate the flowing waters of Google Plus streams.  Being able to personalize content based on my mute history would make for a much more efficient journey.  At least IMHO.
