I’ve tried to build a news feed for a social media app using Algolia, where ais-instantsearch is used to display the posts from users that you are following, and it works pretty well, but I’m unsure if it’s really practical due to the high volume of database reads it involves and the associated cost. Are there any other services recommended for news feeds? Is there an argument for using Algolia for this, or does it only make sense to use it to support search?
